Should We Fish Pre-Spawn Bass? | Outdoor Journal Radio ep. 120

Share this Post:

This week on Outdoor Journal Radio, Ang and Pete are joined by Dr. Steven Cooke to get into the science of Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, including a lengthy discussion on whether we should be fishing them before their spawn!

First, however, a bit of housekeeping was in order. Topics discussed included: Fan mail from T. Nugent; our new hoodies; how golf course fish get so big; and strange things we’ve found in fish stomachs.

With those matters out of the way, Dr. Cooke joins the show from his Quebec City hotel room! Topics discussed included: Chinese fish management; swimming with spawning bass; unenforceable laws; closing areas rather than seasons; Canada vs. USA bass management; how to avoid deep hooks; bass fatherhood; getting students to guard bass nests; and much more!
