I just watched a fishing show , they was fishing for bass and was saying how largemouth bass was the dominant predator of fresh water fish ..........lol. I would like to have reached in the boob tube and choked the ____ out of that dude . He must not have known much about old mister whiskers , cause a flathead in my book is the dominant predator of fresh water fish . I am sure a large mouth has ate a baby flathead before , but baby is the key word there . I know that flatheads have ate adult bass on a daily basis . Show me the bass that eats adult flatheads and I will quit fishing , sell all my gear and start quilting .
