Does anyone know what would cause a bass to have spots like this?

Every bass that I've caught with black spots have always appeared healthy. I used to think it happens more during the spawn, but I've been seeing fish like that well past then.

He was healthy and did not appear to have any issues. That was just the first one iv noticed to have them. The pic isn't very good but they where all over him.

You know what's weird - I lived in west Texas until I was 25, fishing all of the west Texas lakes. I had caught maybe 3 or 4 bass with the black spots on them in my entire life.

I move out here to DFW. . .I catch a few every week it seems like. And I agree, the ones I catch with dark spots area always well fed and healthy looking.

seems like you see it a lot during transition phases. often when fish first move up for prespawn in the early spring for example.

Not making fun at all. I've seen you wearing it several times now. Figured there had to be a story there.
