Busse 6-29-19

Postby Sparty10 » Jul Mon 01, 2019 1:28 pm

Went out early Saturday, fished for around 4 hours on the main lake and caught 3 Bass one around 4 pounds on a Whopper Plopper,then 2 more late on a spinner bait,very hot but was worth it,was wondering if anyone can tell me what the black spots are on the one Bass.

Thanks Rich

Nice group of fish you got there. I've caught a few Busse bass with similar spots but am clueless to why they have them.
If you're fishing slow and not catching anything, fish slower.

Nice holstein bass. I've caught many of those holsteins in many different bodies of water in Illinois and Wisconsin.

Seriously though, its only melanosis. Not a disease and does not affect the quality of life for the bass. In places like busse, where natural reproduction is very abundant, there will be a higher number of bass with those traits because it can be passed genetically. I'd be happy to catch 'holstein bass' all day, since it usually only occurs or appears more visible in mature species.
Nature and shit.

I don't think it's anything more than a genetic thing. I saw it discussed once on a tv show a long time ago so I can't remember exactly, but maybe like a pigment thing. Nice batch of fish.

Glad to see a post from this weekend :thumbup: ( if i'm not fishing still love to read about others outings)

Aux is right, and never heard of them being referred to as "holstein bass",but i get it, and that, Is one pretty holstein bass!! :thumbup: the more spots the better!
Used to think i might catch the same fish only bigger, so took picts of both sides of the spotted bass. Don't think i ever caught the same fish :lol: But I kept an eye out for one with a near perfect diamond on it's tail and the " Goth Bass". With complete black lips!

That, is one spawned out female!! :clap:

Interesting. Haven't caught any with spots at Busse. Congrats on not succumbing to heat stroke out there.
Keep calm and fish on...

There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid
