OLD FISHIN' TIPSTER'S
TIPS AND TRICKS


Got a question about fishing, that you have never been able to figure out?

Well, along comes old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and resident backlash picking champion, with the solution.


Facts About Bass Spawning
  • Bass build nests to spawn in shallow water, 3.2 to 5 feet deep.
  • Bass commence spawning at 60-70 degrees, depending on locale. If the water does not warm quickly the fish will remain on their nests until the water.
  • Male Bass stay on the nest to protect the fry and are highly territorial. They may stay for 20 to 40 days.
  • Egg incubation averages 15 days, 9 or 10 if the water warms quickly
  • Bass strike at almost anything which comes close to their nests.
  • If a Bass is removed from a nest for any length of time, hordes of perch, blue gill, rock bass and bullheads will go into a feeding frenzy on the fry and eggs.
  • Bass played for 2 minutes will return to their nest within 4 to 6 minutes. If played longer or held out of the water they may take an extended time or may never return to protect their brood.
  • The larger bass are females. Males rarely get larger than 4-5 pounds.
  • Females mate with the largest males; the largest males start spawning first.
  • Large Bass are more successful in spawning. If removed, smaller fish will replace them the next year. These are less successful in reproducing.
