Missed trophy bass. Will he stay put?

Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

Missed the biggest bass Ive seen at my most fished local river. Is there a chance he will stay put?

As long as the conditions stay the same you have a good chance she will stay. If the weather has a big change or the river has a large drop or rise she will probably move to meet the conditions. How long before you will be able to return and check on her?

If the food source stays and the weather doesn't change too drastically you may be able to get a second chance.

Bill Dance, the world renowned Bass Champion
says "yes, bass will stay in the area they are comfortable with".
Meaning: habitat, cover, food, structure, yada yada yada.

That is "one" of the reasons that the location of a professional
bass tournament is not given too far in advance as some
of the "unscrupulous" members may sneak some monster fish into
a specific area that they can fish later on during the tournament.
which, if it did work, would give them an unfair advantage above the others.

If you google the subject, many forums have different view points.
http://www.bassresource.com/bass-fishin ... -released/
is only one of them. - - - and it mentions a river.
If you want to catch a previously hooked fish, try "down river" and not
the same place or up river.
