Randy McGovern, one of the nation's most popular wildlife artists. With his dedicated
attention to detail and talent as a painter, he has become a world-renowned fish artist. Working in exact
detail in oil, he attempts to capture each fish in its natural habitat, with an attractive background and a
rich use of light.
Fun Facts: The smallmouth bass is generally brown (seldom
yellow) with red eyes, and dark brown vertical bands, rather than a horizontal band along the side. There
are 13–15 soft rays in the dorsal fin. The upper jaw of smallmouth bass extends to the middle of the eye.
Males are generally smaller than females. The males tend
to range around two pounds, while females can range from three to six pounds. Their average sizes can
differ, depending on where they are found; those found in American waters tend to be larger due to the
longer summers, which allow them to eat and grow for a longer period of time.
