There's no shortage of Black bass. I throw every legal one I catch into the ice unless they are too big.
These Bass guys whine about people keeping a legal bass but will go out on a tourney and fish Carolina rigs and kill hundreds of small bass. I see it all the time. Turtles and Blue Herons probably look forward to Bass Tournaments.
John 21:3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing. They say unto him, We also go with thee.
