Name Largemouth Bass, also known as:Grootbek Baars
Scientific Name Micropterus Salmoides
Description The largemouth is an olive green fish, colour get darker green to olive green towards the back, marked by a series of dark, sometimes black, blotches forming a jagged horizontal stripe along each flank. The upper jaw of a largemouth bass extends beyond the rear margin of the orbit. In comparison to age, a female bass is larger than a male. The largemouth is the largest of the black basses. Studies of prey utilization by largemouths show that in weedy waters, bass grow more slowly due to difficulty in acquiring prey. Less weed cover allows bass to more easily find and catch prey, but this consists of more open-water baitfish. Paradoxically, with little or no cover, bass can devastate the prey population and starve or be stunted. Largemouth are keenly sought after by anglers and are noted for the excitement of their fight. The fish will often become airborne in their effort to throw the hook, but many say that their cousin species, the smallmouth bass, can beat them pound for pound
Weight The average weight of this bass species is around 2 kilograms
Length Average length is around 60 centimetres
Habitat The largemouth bass looks for structure in the water like old dead trees or overhanging trees near the water. They can also be found in other structures or plants inside the water like reeds and floating debris.
Fishing Strategy The Largemouth Bass will take almost any bait thrown at it, but artlure such as crank baits and poppers are preferred. In nature their diets consists of crabs and small fish and frogs as well as worms and even small lizards.
