Do all Bass travel in schools?

Recommended Posts

From what I have read, younger bass will school (small).  Older bass (big) are grumpy old loners.

Largemouth dont seem to school like a striper will,but since their favorite meals ofter school(shad) I guess you could say the largemouth will feed in large groups occasionally

During The dog days of summer you can find small schools 4-6 fish, most  are the same size so they could be anywhere from 1-5 pounds, bigger fish tend to stay alone.

Largemouth: Small fish, small schools. Big largemouth are loners.

Smallmouth: Same size, year class sometimes school, but bigger bass are usually loners.

White bass: Usually in large schools.

Kentucky: Often large schools.

Stripers: Smaller fish are usually in schools. Big ones scare everything in fresh water, they're usually alone.

Yes ,they do school.Last fall I chased three seperate schools.I'd wait for the shad to bust the surface,then motor over  and  rip a jerkbait through.Each school's size was different.One school were yearlings,one was one pounders,and the third was a little bigger that the one pounders.caught eleven in about 30 minutes.
