Largemouth Bass

Set of scaled elevation drawings of the Largemouth Bass viewed from the front and side with length dimension

Depending on the region, the Largemouth Bass (Micropterus salmoides) may be called Widemouth bass, Florida bass, Green trout, and Oswego bass. They are members of the family Centrarchidae native to freshwater lakes, rivers, and brackish water bodies of eastern and central North America.

Being the largest of the black basses, it is distinguished by its greenish or olive-green body with flanks having a jagged horizontal stripe of black blotches, and lower jaws extending beyond the back edges of its eyes. Females are larger than males, with the latter building the nest during spawning. Anglers love the Largemouth Bass because of their vigorous resistance.

Largemouth Basss have a total length between 15”-30” (38-76 cm), body height of 4”-8” (10.2-20.3 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 1.8-30 lb (.8-13.6 kg). The typical lifespan of the Largemouth Bass is 15-20 years.

Freshwater fish are fish that spend some or all of their live in water with a salinity level lower than .05%. Freshwater fish, due to the segmented nature of ponds, lakes, and rivers, are subject to speciation similar to species on islands.
