I used to fish Largemouth but here in Colorado they are neither plentiful nor popular. I fixed that for me by stocking the little gravel pit on the property where my partner and I ran our business. I raised and caught some pretty good bass by Colorado standards. There is a high altitude strain of Largemouths that grow pretty well here. Sadly we sold the business and the property in 2000, I loved using buzzbaits and jitterbugs in the evenings. Fun to watch a nice one miss a couple times before hitting the bait.
