"I caught a large bass! Well, it's pretty big...I guess..." —Animal Crossing

The large bass is only found in Animal Forest and Animal Crossing. It is an uncommon river fish with a large shadow and sells for 3,000 Bells. This fish would be prized during the fishing tourney, as it is the largest size of bass, giving a better chance of winning the tournament.
