Fishing for largemouth bass is a hugely popular sport in The United States of America. Each year it draws an estimated thirty million people to the banks of fresh water ponds, rivers, ponds, and lakes. What makes largemouth bass fishing so appealing to many is that the big fish will make you work hard to catch em’ and fight you every step of the way to the very last second!

When a giant bass takes the bait it is not an easy reel em’ in kind of job, it is more like a prepare for a mega battle type of situation. The bass will do all sorts of tricks, maneuvers and techniques to attempt to get away! Many will even fling their slippery oily bodies into the air in a desperate last chance attempt to escape from the Fisherman’s hook.

This is why so many fishermen and anglers love casting their lines in the hope that a mythically largemouth bass will grab the bait and thus bring a once in a lifetime experience into their day!

To see exactly how powerful, agile aggressive and big-mouthed these bass are, watch the accompanying video of one in action. The video was caught by an unknown fisherman who was using bait to tempt and lure the aquatic beasts at a deep green fishing water hole.

He reels the tinier fish along the top of the water and then suddenly a giant blurry monster can be seen moving up out of the depths from below the waters surface. Moments later the huge fish appears, mouth open wide, and devours the poor little baitfish swallowing it whole in one bite. And this is why they are known as largemouth bass..

There was no hesitation on the fish’s part in going in for the tasty treat because they are the apex predator of these waters. When you are at the top of the food chain it means that only humans can catch them, and even then most of the largemouth bass that are reeled in end up getting released back into the waters.

Many of the larger ones are breeding females and it’s common practice to release them because they are the future of the sport and sustainability is key.┬áIt’s both morally and culturally looked down upon to keep a huge female fish and to do so goes against the unspoken rule of bass fishing!

Also, in many locations it is also illegal to take fish of a certain size. Plus, their meat is not really good to eat. It’s kind of fishy, slimy and mushy. It is not as high a quality compared to the other fish it lives with in its habitat, that you can catch just as easily. So if the one in this video was caught, it was likely also released.
