Wildlife Wednesday: Large and Small Mouth Bass

I know this will interest the anglers coming to our resort! One of our guests, Tyler Bickle, was casting near the swim raft one morning and reeled in this beauty – a 20 lb large mouth bass! These beauties put up a nice fight. Here are some facts about these fish:

 

  • The world record bass was caught in 1932 and weighed 22 pounds 4 ounces. In 2009, the same size bass was caught in Japan to tie the record.
  • Bass never stop growing; the larger the fish the older it usually is.
  • The natural predator list for a bass is small. It mainly consists of walleye, muskie, and northern pike.
  • Because of light intensity, largemouth bass tend to be more active early and late in the day.
