Stonehenge. The Great Pyramids of Egypt. The Bermuda Triangle. The lost city of Atlantis. All famous mysteries of the world – but who cares? We in the bass fishing world have our own big mysteries to puzzle over. We can artificially reproduce giant Texas bass, and use DNA analysis to determine the degree of parent [...]
