Bedding Bass

Recommended Posts

If the temp is warm at least 4 days in a row say lower to upper 60's and the water is warming up and some fish have begun to spawn and then a cold front comes through the next night...do the bass stay in there stage or retreat..??

My observations tell me that the majority will leave if the water temp declines by 4 degrees or more. Last year after a strong cold front in my private laboratory pond, of 8 pairs (or trios in two cases) of bedding bass, just one female stayed locked on.  She relented after about 60 hours of cool down, and left the nest. I don't think she laid her eggs before she vanished either. Never did see her again return to that bed, nor did I see any fry. I think that cool front really hurt a successful spawn. I saw very few fry in '04 after a great '03.
