Tap is gonna have a fit!!!

But......

How many of you eat bass?

I kept about 12-13 specks from the weekend along with 2 16" bass. I hadn't eaten any in a while so I said what the heck. Perc, Jim.B, and Achorman looked at me like this :nono::eek2: Well let me tell yall a thing or two. I will NEVER throw another bass back between 14"-16". (I was always told not to keep them over two pounds as they got a little "muddy" tasting) These were excellent!! No lie! I did the taste testing experiment with the fish eatin-est folks I know of, Me and my two daughters, 4 year olds pushing the crappie fillets away to get to the bass. Now I'm not saying its better, I am simply saying the way I cook, it sure seemed to be better or atleast the meat held the flavor of the seasoning better... WHATEVER the case may be these 4 bass fillets had my hizzle in an up roar last night. :thumbup:

my golly. never thought it'd come to this! tap is right. this is blasphemy. i remember my ex-gf's father tricked me into eating bass one night, knowing i didn't like them. will never forget it. nasty!

still, though, if your kiddos liked them, that's good enough for me! :)

makes sense that the cold water would make them tastier. i think that's true pretty much across the board.

its like I've told many a BassMaster, the reason they got so popular to begin with was because they are delicious! thats why i love the 2 any size rule. those 10-12 inchers are as good as crappie to me. can't tell the difference and neither could the many BassMasters that I've fed then to at my fish frys!!!LOL

We used to eat em on overnight fishing trips. I wasn't sure if it was just being really hungry or? BTW, Smallmouth are even better.
