Mean Mouth Bass at Tom Steed

Mean Mouth Bass fishing at Lake Tom Steed Oklahoma with aspiring fishing pro Mike Diehl

Aspiring Pro Mike Diehl went fishing this last weekend at Lake Tom Steed in the rain and reports that although the fishing was slow, he cast a thousand times to catch these two and boy was it worth it. He caught this huge smallmouth where there aren’t supposed to be smallmouths, pitching a frog under a boulder ledge. The next thing you know the fight was on!

He also says that it’s very possible this is a Mean Mouth Bass – a hybrid mix of largemouth and smallmouth or spotted bass. His Meannie weighed in at 5.5 lb. and the largemouth at 5 lb.

Editor’s Note: Thank for the picture and report Mike. I haven’t ever heard of a Mean Mouth Bass before. Hope I catch one someday! If you would like to become Mike’s sponsor on the bass tour, please contact him at: diehlfam65@yahoo.com
