Because I saltwater fish for my fresh fish. Speckled trout, redfish and flounder. I haven't ate a fish I haven't caught in the saltwater in years. Unless I caught it, cleaned it and cooked it I don't eat it very often.

I eat every legal bass I catch. That being said, I do release those 4 pounds and larger. Saying that keeping bass to save the resource is wrong. Look at Fayette County. The fishery is completely out of balance. That's why TP&W is changing the slot, so more fish can be removed.

I don’t like having to pack an extra cooler with ice

If fishing waters that have too many small bass, and the owner has requested I keep some smaller bass, I’ll double gill and release (preferably over some deeper lay downs where I know some big bass live)

All those saying Bass taste nasty but like Crappie- They’re freaking Sunfish just like Crappie! Bass taste great! Smallmouth are even better.

I'm too tired to clean them after fishing, so I usually leave them in the cooler overnight. My chickens like to eat the heads and I use the remains for fertilizer.

Depends on the lake. Biologist told me that lakes like Rayburn that are in peak shape, every fish could be released. It can support it

+1 and frankly it is cheaper to buy them in the store!

We had a fish fry last weekend and cooked bass and crappie, all fresh and caught the day of. Surprisingly, all 4 of us preferred the bass over crappie.

If you roll bass in shore lunch, pepper it, salt it, shake half a bottle of garlic powder on it, spray it with lemon, add a little olive oil, deep fry it, then dip it in sauce, all the while drinking half a bottle of bourbon along the way, I think it tastes just as good as walleye.

I kid. That's not true. Still not as good as walleye, perch, pike, crappie, bluegill...

Mostly though I don't eat it because the cleaning process is more hassle than it's worth.

We would catch a mess of small ones , fillet em , fry em the same day , very tasty . To me that is the only way . Freezing fish for later tends to change the taste IMO .
