How old does a bass have to be to spawn?
In our area it seems to be about eight inches or so before a bass will spawn. So a year old is roughly the size when a bass spawns. At eight to 10 inches we see pretty good eggs and pretty good milt production. We have seen some that are six to seven inches, they’re a little small but they are mature. I would say anywhere from six to 10 inches, so fingerling we spawn this year, next year will spawn.
