Although I speak spanish fairly well I do not know the word they use for large mouth bass. I was trying to explain what kind of fish I had in my pond to some of the Mexican guys that do odd jobs around my property and was at a loss. I know that bagre=catfish, and mojarra=generic panfish of almost any kind(or so it seems to me,apparently misused in the same way we use "perch" in english). I found perca and pez sol de orejas azules as bluegill translations.After googling for LMB translations I came up with el huro, and la lobina negra. But knowing spanish there is quite likely a mexican name for LMB not listed in most dictionaries. It seems there has to be a name given the mexican LMB fishing tourism that is so well known.

When I was in Spain many years back, LMB were referred to as black bass, so maybe something w/ Negre in it?
Excerpt from Robert Crais' "The Monkey's Raincoat:"
"She took another microscopic bite of her sandwich, then pushed it away. Maybe she absorbed nutrients from her surroundings."

I just asked the cashier from B.P.S., she called her cousin in Mexico, who told her that they call them ROBALLO. I sure hope I'm right about this, as I wouldn't want to ever give wrong advice to anyone.
I have buried the hatchet.

I call them green carp.
If pigs could fly bacon would be harder to come by and there would be a lot of damaged trees.

I'm pretty sure you just need to put an "El" in front of the english version of the word, and add an "O" to the end:

El Largemoutho Basso or El Blacko Basso

I've also discovered that the louder you say something in english to someone of a foreign tongue, the more likely they are to understand it.

Let me know if you need anything else translated. ;\)
