Largemouth bass are the preferred game fish in the U.S. providing exciting fishing for anglers. They will eat just about anything that they can fit into their mouths making it the top end predator in most ponds. Largemouth bass begin to spawn when the water temperature reaches 63-68°F, normally once a year in the early spring before bluegill begin to spawn. There are two known subspecies, Florida and Northern.
Florida bass are known to grow quite large but research has shown them to be less aggressive when adults, making them harder to catch. Northern bass are more aggressive but do not have the top end potential of Florida bass. There is also the F1, which is a cross between the two having the best characteristics of both subspecies (aggressive and grows big in size). You can also have Fx bass (due to years of inbreeding of both genetics) that are a mix of genetics of both subspecies.
