Rock bass season

Recommended Posts

No size limit. Fish for them anytime. The  limit is either 50 fish or no limit. Don't think you have to worry about catching to many. lol

I used to catch a lot of them in Blind Sodus Bay using perch minnows with a small bobber around docks. Good luck and have fun, hope you catch a bunch.

I’ve eaten many and they are just about like bluegill. Great fish for kids as they are very cooperative and bite on just about anything they can fit in their mouth.

Can give a heck of a fight too. Kinda scrappy!

And they can get rather large too. We've caught them here and there while trolling for trout/salmon on the Big O. And not close to shore springtime fishing either. Also in the Fingers. A 12"+ over a pound sized rock bass is something to behold. Spot on BSmaster about the flesh tightness in warmer water. Their skeletal structure is more like a crappie's; bigger, heavier bones. But they taste fine.
