The Museum

The Black Bass can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"They get their name from their somewhat blackish bodies, though they have a green tint. They usually hide in weeds and wait until other fish approach before forcefully striking. Many people use lures to catch black bass because they are such strong fish. Black bass have a fierce image, as the males will scare off other fish to protect the fry in the nest. They are related to sea bass, so they make for a tasty dinner, though their skin has a very strong odor."


Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:

"I caught a black bass! I've got some class!"
