The largemouth bass is the largest member of the Sunfish family (Centrarchidae). Members of the genus (Micropterus) are known as black bass and share the sunfish family with the bream (Lepomis spp.), crappies (Pomoxis spp.) and several other genera.  Micropterus is Greek, meaning "small fin". Salmoides is from the Greek salmo, meaning "trout", and refers to the fact that largemouth bass have been called "trout" in some southern states

The largemouth bass is native to the midwestern and southeastern United States and northeastern Mexico. At present, largemouth bass have been introduced throughout the United States and many other countries worldwide.

Quality - The meat is white, flaky and low in oil content. The flavor depends upon the way the fish are cleaned and prepared. The strong weedy taste of bass caught in some waters may be eliminated by skinning the fish and salting and peppering the fillets before battering. Fillets usually are fried, while larger ones may be baked

Largemouth bass look similar to their close cousin, the smallmouth. Often they are found in the same waters
