Bass teeth

Recommended Posts

I've heard it time and time again: If the teeth are dull, the fish are eating crawfish. But if the teeth are sharp, they are feeding on soft fish like shad.

Is this true? It sure sounds right.

I'm guessing if you're in a position to feel a bass' teeth then you already know what they're feeding on; your lure (or what it's supposed to represent) ;)

J/K: Never heard that before.

The teeth have always been sharp on the fish in Lake X, but,..................it's loaded with craws, no shad.

Maybe this is because of my lack of knowledge, but I never heard of fish chewing on bait before. Ever. ::) ::) ::) ::) ::)

At my favorite pond I'm not sure exactly what the bass' main forage is, all I know is my thumb is chewed to pieces. LBH I feel your pain...literally ;)

Its already been said, but what the heck.

Bass don't chew there food.

This sounds like some old fishing lore.

I've never noticed bass teeth to be different from day to day.

The results of two consecutive days, two lakes, 107 bass, and trying to find out if sunscreen and insect repellant are a deterrent to catching bass-well they are not. One lake has no shad, the other does, and both have crawfish.
