Hi guys,

Was wondering if anyone knows how to sex bass (specifically smallmouth)?

Thanks!

Hi Gen

Beastiality is illegal in most countries around the world :blue-cool:

Its very difficult if not in spawn season, even the biologists have a hard time without actually dissecting.

Thanks nutt :blue-smile:
I've been trying to find external keys for this ( seeing that I'm a biologist, but have no clue either!), but it doesn't seem like there are any. hmmm, very frustrating!

Also true - Cos girls like Justin Bieber also like shoe sales, which is confusing for the rest of us

This is done by examining the shape of the anus.
    Semi round = male
    Elliptical = female
peace,love and bassing.

Yep, tricky question. I have gutted my fair share of LM bass (for science) and the word "tends" rings very true wrt sexing these fish. the only way to determine is either size and condition (whilst alive) or an internal inspection to be 100% sure. If there is a better way Gen, please let me know?
