I have seen this but I still like seeing it. Huge bass ! Looks like it did not make it but not totally sure about that. Thought a few might want to see this if you have not seen it before. Enjoy.

She was frozen. Killed. Lake Biwa is a catch and kill only lake for largemouth bass. No LMB caught in Lake Biwa may be released.

They consider LM bass an invasive species.

I do not!! But if my Iphone craps out, don't think for a minute I wouldn't bust out one of the 4 old razors. Those were the best phones in the world!




Sucks, they have to kill them but that's also part of the reason they have some huge fish.

Then I suggest a trade. They can have their carp back and send the LMB over here.

I live in Japan and fish Lake Biwa regularly. Bass and bluegill are treated as invasives in certain prefectures (states). Mainly areas where they have an impact on the native ayu, wakasagi and trout populations. By the letter of the law, you must kill any you catch, but I've never seen a bass retained on Biwa by any angler other than to weigh in at a tournament, and they were released afterwards. To counteract the fact that no one abides by the law, the government started electrofishing during the spawn and removing the fish. The lake seems to still have a decent population and there are giants every year, but I have been told that it was an incredible place in the early 2000s.

To clarify, the government treats them as invasives in some areas. Bass fishing is incredibly popular with anglers. They aren't regarded as a junk fish.
