Anyone tried to get picture of these using a GoPro? I have some Largemouth Bass and Spotted Bass nests and trying to get some good pics and maybe so video clips too.

If you are trying to get decent pictures of the fry why not capture some and put them in a narrow or slender walled homemade fish tank (thin width tank)?

I am trying to make a series showing bass development in a natural setting. Video clip made this morning looks good showing embryos and all sorts of zooplankton. Daddy bass scared and would not go over nest during recording.

I have a high dissecting microscope for close ups to provide additional pictures. Most people will not be able to see what the scope shows.

Look closer, eggs not hatched yet. The eggs should be hatched by tomorrow but will not be in water column for an additional few days. Video I am trying to upload now shows movement more clearly and even allows picking out a few type of zooplankton and insects (water boatmen and backswimmers).

The seething mass of prolarvae is what I really want to show. Then the process of swim-up.

By product of trying to get pictures. I want good images of fry swimming so managing one pond to be clear.

As I am getting videos made some interesting observations. A brood tending Smallmouth Bass did a stand on his tail manuever that made a whitish chest patch and yellow pelvic fins very obvious. His red eyes really cool as well.

Nice work !!!

Looking forward to more.

That was one busy male LMB. He was giving you the evil eye a few times.

See this thread for a bit of LMB spawning.
