American Sport Fisherman

Searching and then finally catching the big small mouth bass is a real achievement for the true blue American sport fisherman. It is considered to be the Americas number one fresh water sport.

Small mouth bass must be 15 inches long to keep. There is a 5-inch minimum length limit on. Smallies now rank among the top 15 most preferred species. Known maximum size in Canada exceeds 7.5 pounds. These bass commonly live 5 to 7 years, with a few individuals reaching ages from 10 to 20 years. Most bass waters grow some adults to weights of 2 to 3 pounds.

Canadian bass spawn in late spring and early summer at water temperatures ranging from 12.8-20.0 [degrees] . The male builds a saucer-shaped nest, usually in gravel or rocky substrate, by fanning out an area with his fins until he has cleared an area [approximately equal to]0.5 m in diameter.
