Nice bass hawgseeker. Alot of people on this forum are bass guys. The majority of them will tell you practice cnr on the bass. If you fillet them n soak them in soda water or spritzer water for a few hours it will get rid of the bass smell and flavor. I have been eating the hell out of em from Barr lake. Tight lines are fun. Keep at it.

First my apologies to the orignal poster on behalf of Fish Explorer.
Ok, it had been my hope that folks would quit "bashing" others for keeping legal fish. If you wish to discuss the merits of keeping or releasing fish (any species) start your own thread. Do not "raid" someone else's thread. The keeping or releasing of fish is a personal decision and if they are legal they do not need to be told they are wrong, as they are within their rights and not wrong.
If you cannot exercise self control then I can help you with that.
The marginal posts have been removed and if you have a concern with that or my other comments please feel free to email me Dave at fishexplorer.com.
I grew up down there... there are definetly some good fish. 20 years ago there were also tons of mutated fish. Between the sewage treatment plant next door contributing a foul odor and who knows what airborne contaminants, and the schlage company dumping chemicals I would never keep anything out of there! In moderation I would guess that no harm would come to someone consuming the fish, but I have no interest in being that test subject.
