Large Mouth Bass?

Large Mouth Bass?

Postby Double Shot Banks » Sun Jun 30, 2013 5:26 am

Anyone like eating largemouth? I have heard they are good from multiple people, and not too good from others.
I usually let them go, because the fish are so fun to catch and i have some respect for them, noth "tossing" them back but letting them swim off and i guess never saw them as a eating fish. Is there a certain way to cook them different than coating in butter and frying in oil and butter?
Thanks
Isaac and Banks

i have eaten them a few times. the best way i have had it is coated in egg and flour or corn meal and then fried.

Fry them up like any other fish. Good eating. It's good to take the smaller ones out of ponds as they will over populate.

I grew up on them and love bass. It is a very clean tasting fish. My favorite way to eat is broiled fillets with butter and a dash of lemon juice.

We throw 99% back also. But the occasional battered and deep fried one tastes fine. Larry the cable guy batter and malt vinegar. White bass, crappie, perch and walleye are more prolific here. Glad to hear of your great respect for the black bass.

Walleye and perch are pretty equal for me followed by cold water crappies (we don't eat them after May), goes down hill from there sunfish, northerns and digressing into bass. Salmon and Halibut along with some smoked fish are up there but I don't think I could compare them with the other species mentioned.

I am a strick catch and release fishermen, that being said....Bass are a good fish to eat, not on the top of many peoples list but not bad. We keep lots of them from our farm ponds to prevent stunting, we use kind of a slot limit concept to tell if its frying pan or freedom for them. Flour or Andy's fish batters are the way we fry most, give em a taste and enjoy.
