Reproduction
 Most of the time the largemouth bass will spawn in
  shallow bays during spring while water temperatures
  are about 60 degrees. The females lays eggs in a small
  depression made by the male. Most of the females lay
  eggs when they are 1 to 3 pounds. The male will then
  guard the eggs. Then fry drive away predators that get
  too close to the nest. They remain in a group several
  days after they are hatched. When the fry reach around
  two inches in length they begin to feed on plankton and
  larva.
