Doc Talk: Big Mouth

That big mouth of theirs can land them in trouble if you know what to throw.

It's interesting to consider how big a fish's mouth is, as it helps determine the size of the bait you throw. A largemouth will eat shad up to half their body length, and a northern will eat things over that with their wide mouths. But what fish has the biggest mouth?

Dr. Hal Schramm has the answer and some food for thought in terms of throwing baits.
