Spawning Bass

Steven Kriete

Largemouth bass are one of the most eager fish to commit to their spawn every year.  Despite very cold temperatures in February, the bass have started making their beds.  This small male is a classic example with his red mouth from digging through the sanding bottoms in preparation.  The males do much of this and can be identified as male this time of year due to the bloody red roofs of their mouths.  

Crappie will soon follow with most bluegills waiting until May.  In the South, there has been evidence that many species will spawn twice in a good year.  The bass are certainly trying with their early start.

We found crappie hard to come by despite some recent warm ups due to still cold water temperatures.  We caught smaller male bass though and one larger female fishing this weekend.
