If it whinges at you for having an untidy tackle bag, then it's most likely a woman!

Hi Kev.......

It's very difficult and almost impossible for even a biologist to visually "sex" these fish.....the odds are well against any good sized Bass being male though...and with the reproductive organs being internal....well.....

It's no good......I can't resist it......please excuse me.....

Some say that it may be possible by Anal Probing........... :shock:

Of course, at spawning time it is easy to tell - if they are fat with eggs, then they are female. Milt' gets you the males..........

Fair enough it was on my mind for awhile maybe the bigger bass are female and the smaller harder fighting ones could be male??? Maybe the females are all caught on th epink/luminous/colourful lures :) :)
