I did have some problems which I encountered while
I was doing this research. For example, I did have some problems finding

The shape of the bass is an oval body with with a boomeranged-shaped tail, and has a big or small mouth. The color of the Roanoke Bass is a blackish tan, but it does have scales. The tail is also a white brown and yellow color.
