Well, I had always heard that bass was no good to eat, but my girlfriend who likes to eat fish told me to bring some fish home. I kept 4 14 to 16 inch largemouth bass last weekend from Stoney Creek and we prepared it by marinated it lemon juice, dill and greek dressing and then I cooked it on the grill. I will be honest I was shocked how GOOD it was. Not only did I have it fresh on Saturday but i brought the leftovers to work on Monday and Wednesday and just microwaved the fish on reduced heat and poured a little salsa on top. The fish was awesome 4 days later. I just wanted to post this because I know alot of people will be catching bass this weekend and there is going to be the ocassional fish that gets stomach hooked. You might want to keep that fish and cook it up, you might be surprised how good it tastes. Especially in this economy you can't beat a free meal. Just my two cents. Tight lines.
