The Largemouth Bass

The Largemouth Bass is a predatory fish of the Centrachidae family. Growing to some 25lbs and endemic to North America, it is found in most lowland rivers and lakes from Canada to Florida, with large populations concentrated in states as California and Texas as well as in Mexico. The species was introduced to Europe in the 19th century and now inhabits central and southern Europe. Its preferred habitats are warm waters with heavy cover as sunken trees, vegetation and weeds, shoals and rocks. As most bass, it feeds on small fish, crayfish, frogs and insect larvae. During feeding, young bass form packs and hunt together. The Largemouth Bass is a valued sport fish, known for its explosive energy and acrobatics once hooked.
