I do believe the Florida bass fight harder. But that doesn't mean much since I've never had one, even a 10lb fish pull more than maybe 20 feet of line off the reel. So I don't think bass are particularly strong fighters. But they make up for it in other ways. If you want something that pulls back hard, go catch a blue cat.
Just my .02

LMB ain't for the table, that's for sure. I can't remember the last time I kept one. Freshwater eating is for crappie and catfish.
As for the original question, river largemouth's, especially swifter waters like the Trinity fight harder. That being said, I take any I can get ahold of.
An occasional LMB IMO for the table is quite tasty. I'm sure that'll get a rise out of some , but bass meat is firm and good fried/baked. In fact it wouldn't hurt to keep a few slots out of select lakes that are trying to beef up the bigguns.
Now I too agree about the river bass-they fight harder.
