PhotoByBrianCope: My nephew Joe, of Lake City, shows off a small rock bass, also-known-as a redeye bass, caught in Cane Creek. These fish only live in cold water rivers and streams and are similar in size and appearance to a warmouth bream, a popular panfish in the midlands. Click on the photo for a close up to see the obvious reason they are called redeye bass.
