Largemouth Bass

The Largemouth Bass is abundant in warm water ponds, lakes and impoundments especially when protected from wind and containing submerged vegetation. It is found statewide and feeds primarily on fish, insects and crustaceans.

Largemouth Bass have a long, slender body with a large mouth and head. The upper jaw reaches to the rear margin of the eye or farter in adults. Their body is dark olive in color fading to white on the belly. They have a dark mid-lateral stripe and a deep notch in the dorsal fin that separates the spiny and soft-rayed portions.
