One of the most popular freshwater game fish due to its pugnacious attitude and willingness to strike a lure or bait with explosive force.
Research indicates that the largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) is also the most intelligent freshwater fish, able to distinguish and avoid a particular type of lure after only one encounter with it.
Bass love to be around all kinds of structure that provide shade and ambush points such as weeds, docks, submerged tree stumps, rocks, etc.
Part of the fun of bass fishing is the wide variety of lures you can use to catch them.
