I'm dumb, but let me try to answer anyways. Your state, which happens to be my state, advises to eat no more than one meal (1/2 pound) per week from any freshwaters in the state. They also have even more restrictive advice for certain bodies of water. Just look under "Health Advisory" in the regulations booklet or on the web site.
roadwarrior is like the smartest guy i know, is there any limit to how much you should eat, my lake seems clean, how do u get rid of mercury or where does it come from

Sullivan C. and waters in the Adirondacks have a new advisory warning against pregnant women eating any bass from those waters and limits the quantity anyone else can eat.
Warm, algae loaded water and many of our small polluted rivers don't offer good testing fish and no matter what you soak them in, they taste like the crap that was in the water! Even Hudson R. fish taste like s*** or the smelt they feed on.
A few gin-clear waters have yielded the best bass I've ever tasted, but I'm not familiar with many that are clear and clean. Even the reservoirs might not have decent water for good eating fish. Though SBR is off limits until the dam is fixed, the heavy algae and resulting ph of 8, mean the fish are constantly soaking a yukky bath of fertilizers, cow crap and other runoff.
White L. and L. Superior State Park might be your best waters. I don't know about Yankee or Louise Marie.
My favorite recipe is fast-frying boneless fillets in clarified butter and using a bit of lemon pepper in the cornmeal batter.

I have been told that larger fish 3lb and larger seem to store the toxins in their body whereas the smaller ones don't have that problem.
My Uncle is a veterinarian and an outdoor nut and I've heard him make that statement about redfish. Apparnetly the older one's are infested with stuff. It's probably true with bass too.
