Why do small mouth bass pull so much harder than largemouth bass?

    Smallmouth bass (microptera salonoides–Latin for small-finned trout-like) and largemouth bass (microptera dolomieu–Latin for small-finned + Dolmieu, the name of the ithyiologist who discovered them) are very closely related species and grow to be about the same size.  Smallmouth bass, however, have additional rays on the dorsal fin which can lead to greater propulsion, thus their harder pull.
