    Basically I only eat one on the very rare occasion that one doesn’t make it. Has to be on a clean body of water. Last time I had a fish die on me was a smallie I caught trolling a deep crankbait in 2017. Delicious

    Where i live there arent huge volumes of bass locally and they are highly pressured so keeping them makes a real impact on fishing.
    However ive fished back east where the fish were plentiful and keeping them probably doesnt really affect their numbers significantly.
    I also dont really keep freshwater fish probably because of the tuna yellowtail halibut and lobster i get from the ocean has spoiled me.

    I eat the majority of bass that I catch. I let the really big ones go. They are delicious.

    I keep a couple of 2 pounders once a month and have a little fish fry.

    I prefer eating crappie but like bass fishing. The crappie I do catch are going in a skillet but I don’t target them and rarely catch them because I throw worms over 90% of my cast. I pick them up on spinners and crankbaits sometimes. Crappies physically can’t strike baits below their jaw so they can’t hit baits sitting on the bottom like worms.

    I look at it as seabass (white/calico/sand/black) are for eating, largemouth are for sport. There’s so many other delicious options in freshwater for food that largemouth should be the last resort if food is your goal. A tiny treble and a cup of worms will catch so many crappie, perch and bluegill it’ll become boring – and they’re amazing off the grill. To each their own for sure, but if I’m going for food I’m going for trout or the other listed species.

    Never tried it, but I don’t see the problem with it. Why some people feel the need to gatekeep what species another guy / gal can keep is beyond me… as long as they’re of a legal size, I do not care what kind it is.

    I consider most bass a sport fish. Striped bass on the other hand is delicious. Sea bass as well.

    I might eat them up to maybe 5 times per year. Although just like most fish, I don’t eat the really big ones. If I’m fishing for fish to eat, I’m not fishing for bass. Where I am, perch are the best fish to eat (imo).
