A new study has found that about 20 percent of all male black bass in U.S. waters have female sexual characteristics. Here's more than you probably want to know about this. The only U.S. waters without any feminized black bass are in the manly waters of the Yukon River basin of Alaska.

Yeah! I heard on the radio this morning that the Mississippi is the worst, with 73% of the male bass showing female traits! Yowza.

(Might want to double check those figures, because I was brushing my teeth at the time, but I think they're accurate.)

I hope you weren't brushing your teeth with Mississippi River water....you can see the impact it's having on the bass.
