Largemouth Bass (Micropterus salmoides) Largemouth Bass (Black Bass, Green Trout, Bigmouth Bass, Lineside Bass) Largemouth bass seek protective cover such as logs, rock ledges, vegetation, and man-made structures. They prefer clear quiet water, but will survive quite well in a variety of habitats.
Smallmouth Bass (Micropterus dolomieu) Brown Bass, Brownie, Bronze Bass Smallmouth bass prefer large clear-water lakes (greater than 100 acres, more than 30 feet deep) and cool streams with clear water and gravel substrate.
Spotted Bass (Micropterus punctulatus) Kentucky Spotted Bass, Spotted Black Bass Spotted bass seem to be segregated by habitat type from closely related species. They tend to be found in areas with more current than largemouth bass, and they usually inhabit areas that are too warm, turbid, and sluggish for smallmouth bass.
Guadalupe Bass (Micropterus treculii) Black Bass, Guadalupe Spotted Bass Typically, Guadalupe bass are found in flowing water, whereas largemouth bass are found in quiet water. The Guadalupe bass is found only in Texas and has been named the official state fish.
