Weekend forecast may be a blessing

Recommended Posts

With rain and high winds in the forecast combined with the high water and closed launches on the lake and River the spawning bass may get a break from angling pressure. With the early opener spawning bass should have been vulnerable this year. High water and less pressure due to weather conditions may lead to a good spawn this year as fish will be able to move into shallow spawning areas. Less hope conditions lead to favorable spawning even with the early opener.

still crazy to me people keep bass

is a freshwater sunfish family member. They are excellent eating. Out west in California you can go into Asian owned supermarkets and small markets where live, in the tank, 1/2lb. to 2lb largemouths go for $10 A POUND! Not so crazy to me....but that price is definitely!

I harvest bass but I don't harass them when they are spawning.  I agree with Kevin - It probably was a good thing.

There were still fish on beds in Henderson harbor as of Sunday.  I'm definitely not a fan of fishing for them till they spawn, but season opens a bit early imo, and walleye too!

So, I take it you have never cleaned, cooked and eaten bass....:wondering: Other than mounting a record fish, there really is no other reason, for most people, to keep (kill...) some bass. They are very good eating :nod:

smallmouth are good but I have kept one in the past 20 years or so, and that was last year. I'd rather C&R

Smb were what we used to catch and eat when I was a kid growing up on the SLR. They were much smaller then.... 1.5-2.5#. I still remember my grandmother cooking the fillets and how great they tasted. I don't keep many bass now.... but the smaller smb I keep sure are tasty!
