for the amount of money I spend on fishing, darn right i am eating them, yum

👍
I'll admit I can be selfish and hate seeing people keep fish I enjoy catching for sport. But I am more logical then selfish and understand the rights to hunting and fishing was to provide and not for sports.

poidy I couldn't agree with you more. I am not a tournament fisherman and do not use electronics. I go fishing to get a feed of fish since the slot size for walleye I have only been able to keep 2 so I enjoy a few SMB and Lake Trout

Many years ago I was cleaning some bass out on a deck stopped for about 10min when I went back on cleaning them wasn t able to continue due to all the worms crawling out of them probably from the sun and heat left a bad feeling in towards eating them again.For my self only good for catch and release my opinion.

The taste of bass, like other fish and for animals, depends on their feed and their environment.

very true dat


I love catching bass. Said before i won't eat them. I catch other fish that are far more tasty imo.

I see nothing wrong with those that wish to eat bass however.

In the end all of this is personal choice, options on species available to catch and frankly none of my business......

I voted I eat them occasionally. With that in mind, I only eat smallies. Not all the time but I'll keep one every so often for a lil snack. Large mouth no I just find with the majority of the ones I catch in warmer shallow water just don't like / trust the quality of the fish. But that's my own personal preference.

Why take the chance? Nothing like a nice rainbow trout. I used to eat bass as a kid, like others have said it depends on environment but usually they do taste bad. Bass also are pretty prone to worms.

The only time I have ever eaten a bass was in algonquin park for a shore lunch. One two lb smallie for four of us. It was pretty good with some seasoning and batter.

Dave.

On a scale of 1-10 where store bought food is about a 3 and freshly caught cod is an 11, I'd give those a 7!

I just wish I could get back there to get some more---need to get psyched up for all that bushwhacking!!
