Fish that are caught off beds then brought to a weigh in, will they travel back to those same beds? Or how does that work?

It all depends on how far away the weigh in is......I'm a firm believer that a bass will travel a good distance, and eventually make it back to the general area.....JMO....

Ive heard they have tracked bass and they eventually make it back to their old area but also hear that they hang out where near where dropped off. Not really sure which it is but have always wondered it also

I also believe that and have read studies on fish that were tagged and released miles away from where they were caught and they were caught again in the same area some time later. But let's say a female is weighed in that's full of eggs, weighed in 10 miles away from where she was fixing to lay her eggs. Will they just lay them any where or lose those eggs?

No, that year class for that female is lost from the gene pool.

John Hope did some interesting tracking studies

Most will hang out where they are released for a short time, a day or more, before making their way back to their home range/area. A few never leave.

Yea there have been studies done about it. Most of the released fish won't travel much more than a mile or two.
