Large schools of streamer bass and other brightly colored “plankton pickers” live over hardbottoms and reefs on the deep shelf and upper continental slope in the southeast US and Caribbean Sea.

Bass is a name shared by many species of fish. The term encompasses both freshwater and marine species, all belonging to the large order Perciformes, or perch-like fishes. The word bass comes from Middle English bars, meaning “perch”.

Also Largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass are the most popular game fish in North America.

It is also very popular in South Africa where the largemouth bass is often found in lakes, rivers, creeks, and dams.

When fishing, lures (Bass worms) or live bait will work. Lures that mimic baitfish, worms, crayfish, frogs, and mice are all effective.
