(Bait) Size Matters When Chasing Trophy Largemouth Bass
February 12, 2018
Using the concept of "optimal foraging," you can dial in to what makes trophy largemouth bass more prone to gulp a bait.
A number of years ago, a fisheries biologist friend introduced me to the concept of "optimal foraging," of which the basic premise states that organisms forage in such a way as to maximize energy intake per unit of time.
This behavior makes a large bass more prone to gulp a bigger bait over a smaller one, when given the choice.
Largemouth bass make their living off baitfish one-quarter to one-third their body size.
