You sure you ain't over the limit? Looks like a lot of bass to me. You can send me half so you will be legal. :grin:

You may possibly be the ONLY person I know who keeps that size bass and then EATS them!! Most everyone I know sport fishes for them and just takes a pic and releases them or keep them to hang on the wall.

We kept 14 bass between 3 people,1 fish under the limit and we threw back a bunch of fish !And as far as catch and release I very seldom keep any bass but if I want a mess of fish to fry and I'm not breaking any laws I really don't care what anyone thinks about it. I am blessed to have a place to fish that can handle a few fish being caught and released into a frying pan every now and then. ;)

The biologist told us not keeping bass out of our lake, is the worst thing we could do.. I just wish we could consistently catch them that big !

The lake we were fishing is taken care of very well! The owner told us to keep some fish and we were happy to do so! This place is awesome and has some really good bass.

If I had managed our lake correctly from the start, we would have a nice bass lake. Instead, I believed the "more is better" theory :(

People here think that if it's not catfish or crappie it's not good to eat? I was raised on the bayou in south MS. and we ate a lot of fish they don't eat here. When I go to the coast here people think I'm crazy for targeting sheepshead for freezer fish and they wonder about a guy floundering barefoot with a mantle light and a needle gig? Old habits are hard to break!

I love eating those big bass. I always thought the biggest ones taste the best.

Like most I have always caught bass. But for eating, it was always bream, crappie and catfish.
The past few years I started frying bass filets. Since then my wife, and family members want only bass. My son just said yesterday, that I ruined his taste for catfish. He only wants bream and bass.
Plus smoked filets are as good as smoked salmon filets.
The picture is of smoked salmon, but the bass is just as good. Just doesn't have the oils that salmon have.

We like to leave the skin and scales on the fillets of bigger bass and brush the meat side with oil and seasonings and smoke or grill. On the halfshell if you will. ;)

Grilling for eating for dinner, and brining and smoking for vacuum sealing. Are two different things. Brining and smoking at low temperatures, takes time and knowledge of the process if you desire to have a great finished product.
