Yo Bass

why are bass considered the number one fish and not bowfin?

you know how every one is like im a bass fishermen i caught a bass oh that bass i caught was huge. well bowfin are much bigger and fight way harder why are they not considered game fish and stocked?
i dont really eat fish but i thought people dont eat bass cause there tough and rubbery no?

a lot o' folk whut lives way back in th' okeefenokee swamp considers them bowfins th' numba one fish. why, jus t'other day ah ketched me a big ol' grinnel, musta gone thutty poun o' mo. got it on one o' them green trouts 'bout fo' poun. ah thinks you city slickers calls 'em basses. they's good bait tho, fo sho!
ah thinks all y'all spens beaucoups bucks on yo bass ketchin stuff mo than them othah kines a' fishes. thats why y'all conserdid... kinsidder... thinks them basses is numba one. but l tells y'all RITE now, ah spendit FO dollahs on mah fish pole 'n' hooks 'n' string. down here, thats big bucks TOO!!

my apologies...
the point l was trying to make was that bass are considered the most popular because of all the money spent on catching them (and earned).
some areas of the country, albeit small areas but many, crappie may be the most popular. but crappie tournaments have no where near the payouts. same with walleye further north. l'm pretty certain that at least one of you have fished a walleye tournament. answer truthfully... does a completely tricked out walleye boat cost anywhere near that of some of those bass tournament boats? do they even come close in numbers? l'm not even going to ask about a crappie rig. most "professional" catfish anglers get by in a rig that l doubt costs much more than ten thousand dollars. a fourth or less of that of a bass boat.
bass bring so much money in to various states that states like texas have state funded programs to increase bass potential.
it all comes down to money. the biggest bowfin tournament l ever heard of paid out to the winners a total of seven dollars (just kidding - there never has been a bowfin tournament that l ever heard of).

and as far as any perceived insult to any hill or swamp folk, no offense intended. its in my blood. ah wuz jus' bein natchul.
sheeit! ain't one o' my cuzzins whut knows how to work one o' these here 'puter thangs nohow!
