Lone Star Legacy Bass - Overton Fisheries Signature Strain

Lone Star Legacy Bass represent our "signature-strain" of Florida Largemouth Bass.  These unique golden bass were acquired from a local private lake that is famous for producing monsters weighing 10#-15#.  Our Legacy Bass breeding stock were acquired direct from this private lake, and even more breeders were produced from fingerlings out of the Lunker Breeding Program.  These fish have a golden shine across the back, heavy mottling pattern, and many individuals exhibit a blue-green mark on their upper back near the head.  If you have a new fishery anywhere in the southern states, stock these genetics for the potential to grow monsters.  If you have an existing fishery and want to introduce Legacy Bass, consider growing out fingerlings to larger size in a separate grow-out pond before transfer.  These fish have a true legacy in the Lone Star State of Texas, and you can help to preserve this special premium strain by stocking them in your fishery.  The Legacy Bass are available as fingerlings, from late May - July, and sometimes in the Fall.
