Bass Care 101 - Bass Handling



Anglers should be careful especially when handling big bass not to damage the jaws. If the jaw is damaged, it is likely the bass will no longer be able to feed, leading to higher rates of mortality. Anglers should hold the bass in a fully vertical position, or use two hands to support the body. Using a single hand to hold a bass without proper weight distribution can damage or dislocate the jaw.
