And the way they fight...If'n they got to be 3-4lbs...what a blast that would be to catch them.
we had a fish fry with them very goodWhen we were kids back in the 70s our great aunt would pan fry rock bass/sunfish along with the perch we caught. Fun times picking out the bones because they were too small for a good filet.
I've been eating them all my life and they're actually pretty good table fare. And believe it or not, the other one that's always considered a trash fish, Sheephead (Freshwater Drum) are really good table fare also.
