SLR Bass opener

Recommended Posts

Although slower morning than many openers we still did ok. Lots of fishing pressure out this morning. Things got slow so we left the river with 11 smallmouths and finished our limit with 4 largemouths on a small local lake.

Tough walleye morning here but bass were on fire and my guys were happy with bags of smallmouth filets!  Fish it's what's for dinner!

I caught one 19" walleye this morning. The walleye bite has been somewhat slow. Giving the bass a little rest as they got pounded this weekend.

Nice ones.  Brings back memories of the bass opener at Cannonsville reservoir with my dad and brother.  Every year we used to go and get some smallies and they always get so pale when you ice em down.  Pretty good eating fish when they are in that small to medium size range.

I just can't bring myself to eat bass when I can get myself some walleye or perch, the perch are on fire right now.

I agree and haven't eaten bass in a long time but the last ones I kept were some smaller smallies from Lake George and they were pretty darn good.  Not quite as good as perch or eyes but not bad.  Talk about good I wish we had some haddock in our local lakes:lol:

Wow thats a slob.

 

I'm 99% catch and release but I kept a smallie this past weekend for a solo dinner, kinda for the heck of it. Right around the 3lb range, maybe 3.25.  First time I've eaten one in probably 20 years and I must say it was pretty dang good. Very mild flavor.

It was 20 3/4 inches. I didn’t have anything to girth it with, I’m leaning towards getting a replica made

Next time, use a piece of fishing line.  Put it around the fish and cut it where it meets.  Measure it when you get home!

I didn’t think of that one that’s a good idea I’ll have to remember that for next time
