The number 1 con about this small body of water is that you cannot launch if your gas motor is over 25HP because it's the city's water supply and, they try to minimize erosion...That takes a lot of us out of the game, so to speak. The cost depends on whether you're a county resident and old you are. Not expensive either way. $25/yr, then $2 or $.50 per person depending on your age and residency.

Just bothers me on an emotional level to see that bass fileted out and displayed like that. Could care less about almost any other kind of fish. I guess bass fishing plays such an important part in my life I look at them differently than any other kind of fish.

I agree with the "Ok to keep within the legal limits" moral. It just bothers me personally is all.

Nice catch though.

When you have a lake with very little fishing pressure you end up with 80% of the bass between 12 and 14 inches long and skinny as a pickerel. You can't have big bass if there's too much competition for the available bait....

I never saw the point of a minimum size limit for bass. I feel like a maximum size limit would be better for populations in places that need managing. Leave the big girls alone and let them keep the smaller fish under control. Course then you'd have to make replica mounts not skin mounts.

I'm with you Swampin I have bass fished since the 70's and we had it beat in our heads, its basically like sacred cows in India. I have wondered myself whether to keep a few . I wouldn't even think about crappie or any other specie. It seems to me I just read about Texas now promoting keeping a few for the same reason you said, balance. Ray Scott raised us almost too well if you know who he is and what a job he did.

According to the Wildlife Resources Commission there is a state wide advisory to not eat any large mouth bass. If it was not for that i would be eating about every one i caught that is within the confines of the law of course

The no lmb advisory is for pregnant women and children. The rest of us can eat 6 oz per week

I've only ever eaten bass that was cooked over an open fire with old bay seasoning. I liked it alright but I'm not much of a fish eater anyway. I think I liked the idea of eating my catch out in the wilderness more then I liked the fish itself.
