Yep.  have the old tape ones.

 

They are very informative and I watch them every winter.

 

Enjoy!

The one that sticks with me the most is the one where a fish inhales a jerk bait with 3 trebles in a flash, and then spit's it out just as fast.

True definition of a Large Mouth.

Watching all the bass inhale and spit out the lures without the guy even knowing something hit the lure made me wonder how often that happens to me.

Yeah saw them on youtube. Pretty cool videos. I like the part where uncle homer says he didn't even feel the fish hit his bait. He was using a crankbait too which was funny.

I looked it up on YouTube but the quality was so terrible. I had to rip it off YouTube and render it so make it partly watchable. There is a video that is simar in having cool shots of bass hitting lures but it is in French I think. It has a bunch of pros talking and those guys who were trying to catch Dottie in it. But everything anyone says in it is dubbed over in French.

What this film reveals is not all bass behave the same, even in the same ecosystem.

I have said many times that anglers miss a high percentage of strikes because we can't detect them and the reaction is always a rebuttal. Accept that simple fact and improve your strike detection techniques.

Another factor is bass are object oriented and can't navigate without some type of sign posts we call structure. This is only partially true for the object oriented bass that tends to ambush it's prey. The school bass or the object oriented bass doesn't need objects to navigate and hunt prey.

The notion that school bass are juvenile size bass is also wrong, big bass also school in what we call wolf packs.

The bottom line is 90% of the bass anglers fish for object oriented bass near shore cover and ignor those school bass off shore or roaming near shore.

I found the brief observation about school bass being different was huge. 

 

But, the video left me wanting.  Any suggested videos or reading on 'school bass'?   Are they wired differently?  Temporary?  or nearly always?    Aside from their swimming partners, are there a lot of other behavioral differences?  Do most waters have bass behaving both ways most of the time?   In a short period....hours or days....do loners move around more than schooled bass?  Or do they stake out the most comfortable spot and stay put?

Some of the answers to your questions can be found in Bill Murphy's book In Pursuit of Giant Bass, Individual Behavior, pages 30-34. Reference Mike Lembeck DFG biologist tracking study.

I don't want to hijack this thread and will start a post about school bass.
