Well, bass can spawn more than once a year. A lot of bass DO spawn more than once a year.
Or some bass just spawned later, fish can spawn almost year round in Az. Not all spawn when the water turns 60ish.....Well, bass can spawn more than once a year. A lot of bass DO spawn more than once a year.
Two things... Remember to zip up and quit looking down at yourself...theres some 2 inchers in patty right now i seen a bunch last weekend
I did a little research on this after catching some 2 inch LMB in October a few years back while I was on Saguaro. It actually began as understanding how a 2 inch fish was going after my 2 inch Kastmaster. Then I seen some articles on LMB spawing.
Not always does a female release all her eggs with one male at one time. She might only release a portion with one male then later with another male. You are talking nature, survival and spreading the gene's around.
I read where a LMB can spawn as many as 4 times in a year if the weather is right. Climate has a lot to do with it.
Small ponds = slow growth rates????
