Bass are similar to other creatures in that in the spring they’ll give birth to baby fish. What is amazing about bass is you can often see the females in their nests close to the shorelines; however, the trade-off with this is they are hard to tempt with just about any bait. They’re nesting and taking care of their young, and the nurturing instinct is strong in all females. The most important thing is that you should never keep this catch if you do manage to catch a mother who is nesting.
A very well known bass is the large mouth and they are also as well known as small mouth and the brown. The large mouth can fool some fisherman because this fish will go through transformations of certain kinds with their appearance.

What helps to make the sport much more interesting and challenging is how fast the water moves.
