Underwater Footage | Big Spotted Bass Crushing Swimbaits and Jigs!

This Spotted Bass is ready to fight! We positioned a camera below the surface to catch the drama as it unfolds. The bass repeatedly goes on the attack! It viciously eats swimbaits and jigs without abandon. Spotted Bass are amazing predators. They're more aggressive than largemouth and more powerful than smallmouth. This bass is a perfect example of Spotted Bass aggression! 

In case you're wondering, this bass is spawning. Its a 3-4 lb male and is defending its bed. You'll notice though that where a largemouth will sit on its bed and a smallmouth will spin around in circles, a Spotted Bass will actually go on the offense. It rises toward the surface to meet its foe and will not stop until the job is done.
