Why We Call It Red Eye

There are several species of Ambloplites more commonly known as Rock Bass. They are widely spread through much of the eastern and middleUnited States and Canada found in the St. Lawrence, Great Lakes, and mid to upper Mississippi drainages. Other names are Red Eye and Goggle Eye. They max out at 10-12 inches long and may weigh a little over a pound. They love to eat flies we fish for smallmouth. Rock Bass will hit hard, but then their size betrays them and they come in easily. This one hit a crippled minnow diver.
