Rock  Bass


 

Though the characteristic red eye is not very apparent in the above picture, the rock bass is the red-eyed answer to this question. The Minnesota state record rockbass weighed two pounds (Mn DNR, 2014). The world record is three pounds. If these little beauties aren't wormy, they're actually not bad eating. Just pretend they're crappies, and cook em' up!
