LARGEMOUTH BASS (Micropterus salmoides) 

OTHER NAMES:  Black Bass,  Bucketmouth 

ADULT FISH IDENTIFICATION:  The large mouth extends past the back of the eye when the mouth is closed.  A dark band runs along the side of the body from head to tail. Coloration is variable, but is usually a dark green. Young Largemouth Bass usually have a black tipped tail. 

DIET:  Anything they can fit in their mouth, Bluegill, frogs, insects, Fathead Minnows, Golden Shiners and other small fish are most common fare for them. 

SPAWNING:  Mid-March to Mid-June when water temperatures reach 62̊F right before a full moon. Males construct nests in 2’ to 4’ of water on sand or gravel bottoms. 

FISHING TIPS/USES:  Natural bait and artificial baits work well with casting or spinning gear.  If fish get hook shy, use a 4”-6” Bluegill suspended under a bobber. Largemouth Bass are used to control Bluegill populations in ponds.
