The Natural History of the Black Bass

You must know something of the habits of the black bass to fish for him successfully, and this is particularly true in the case of the devotee of bait-casting. Given a lake or stream with bass therein, something more is necessary than merely getting into a boat or a pair of waders, selecting some spot that looks sufficiently wet, and then casting for "general results." The small and large-mouth bass spawn during the months of May and June, the exact time depending upon the temperature. In water of a comparatively high temperature the spawning period is prior to that in waters lower in temperature, and in rivers the bass spawn earlier than in lakes and ponds. The nest is guarded by the male fish, and for some time after the eggs have hatched the male parent guards the young fish. Small-mouths choose a gravelly bottom for building the nest, but the large-mouths sometimes do not discriminate in this regard. The spawning takes place in the shallows, and for some time thereafter, during the first days of the open season; the bass remain in moderately shallow water. At this time the bait-caster should fish on the surface.
