Catchability and Spawning Behavior of Largemouth Bass Tagged with Dummy Transmitters

Catchability and spawning behavior of largemouth bass {Micropterus salmoides) with surgically implanted dummy transmitters and bass without transmitters were compared during 1992-1994 in a 0.20-ha pond. There was no significant difference between catchability of transmitter and control bass (P < 0.05) and spawning behavior of male transmitter and control bass (P < 0.05). Female transmitter and control bass were observed being courted by male bass on nests.
