Saltwater Bass

What characteristics do saltwater bass have that are similar to the generic Smallie and Large mouth?

They're both primarily sedentary fish -- for the most part they hang around cover, rather than roaming open water, sitting and waiting for prey to happen by, then they shoot out quickly and grab it, then turn and dive back into the cover. Their body shape is similar because of this -- the big flat tail fin is made for quick acceleration, the large mouth is good for grabbing prey and swallowing it whole. Their coloration is also adapted to keep them less visible near cover (dull, non-reflective, as opposed to silver and shiny like trout or tuna).

They're both opportunistic feeders, eating anything they can get their mouths around, such as crustaceans, worms, and fish (including young of their own species). I've never heard of a saltwater bass eating a duckling, but I don't doubt it's happened.

And of course, you can catch them on the same types of lures on the same type of tackle (except of course the huge giant sea basses and groupers).
