Florida Largemouth Bass

The Florida Largemouth Bass (Micropterus salmoides floridanus) holds the distinguished honor of being the official state fish of Florida, a title it has held since 1975. This iconic freshwater species is renowned among anglers for its impressive size, powerful strikes, and thrilling fights on the end of fishing lines. Characterized by its olive-green coloring, dark lateral stripe, and a cavernous mouth that can swallow prey nearly half its size, the Florida Largemouth Bass is not only a beloved catch for recreational fishermen but also a vital component of Florida's rich aquatic ecosystems, making it a symbol of both sport and conservation in the Sunshine State.
