Range of Spotted Bass
Accurate documentation on the current range of spotted bass has been somewhat muddled by the recent declaration of the new sub-species of Alabama Spotted Bass (micropterus henshalli). Spots over 3 or 4 pounds are suspected to be the Alabama variety, as the Kentucky Spot is not believed to reach these sizes, although accurate documentation is not clear. Combining the ranges of both we have an approximate distribution as follows:
The larger Alabama spotted bass is native to the Coosawatee River drainage in Georgia. Because of the attractive sporting qualities of this fish, it has been populated in many non-native US states. It has also been stocked in waters of Japan, Europe, and with great success in South Africa.
