Fry Guarding Bass HD Underwater Video

We have a passion for observing nature here at Wired2fish and were inspired by this footage of a male smallmouth bass tending to newly hatched baby bass fry. If you look closely, you’ll notice a 3/0 wide-gap offset worm hook broken off on the outside of his mouth. Parental nest guarding is essential to ensuring good survivability of the brood. Whatever your opinion is on targeting spawning bass, this footage stirs a strong sense of appreciation for the nature of bass.
