Not to start an argument or even have scientific proof or evidence, reading many articles about the environment and how the U.N. has many scientist stating that we are in danger of possible extiniction of certain species of fish and other life forms of organisms. If what the scientist say is true...what if Bass dissapear, what then will we fisherman do, that love this past time so much?

Not that it wouldn't take awhile, just askin on opinion not tryin to start an agrument and get this topic locked.

In all honesty I try not to think about the inevitable of it ever happening, just that it may just like anything else, we are not promised tomorrow just today, so I reakon I will just keep fishing until it happens or I go away.

I would miss it, simply because I can step into my backyard and catch bass ( maybe more peacocks would move in :respect-059: ). If they were to disappear tomorrow it would merely be an inconvenience, I'm 15 minutes from the ocean.

I would definitely miss it. I think I would just turn into a bobber and worm fisherman if that happened. Bass are the only fish I really enjoy figuring out and putting time in to.

We are not even promised that my friend, whatever we do from the time we wake from within to the time we sleep eternally, we must do our best to leave behind our past in good enough shape for our future.

We must do our best to give enough of ourselves to ensure a long survival of our species, some of us just need a little help along the way, bass are no different in that respect, although they are unknowingly doing their best, they themselves are ever evolving to provide the same assurance of survival of their species as are we and as we interact with one another.

The only difference is we are knowingly taking bits and pieces of their puzzles and trying to give them the best possible chance at a long and healthy span of life, while others are taking pieces and not putting back, with things like pollution etc...

It's not that I can't find other things to do besides go bass fishing if they all were to leave us tomorrow, it's what we did not do yesterday to help prevent that from happening.

What would I do if they did leave? I have not a clue, but I think I would take whatever time I could and spend it with my girls.

I am no tree hugger by any means but I do, do my part in life to help along the way.

I feel ya Nitro, if we all had mind sets like yours on the concept, then this topic would be irrelevant. That's a great, well said statement Nitro, good stuff. I think we should all do our part for the environment at least learn something new, to help keep this past time from expiring.

Oh Please, why take seriously anything the UN says. Besides bass are found in all the 48 lower states and in almost any body of water. They will be the last fish to go extinct anytime soon. They could outlast **** sapiens.

Don't worry you will have plenty of bass to catch your entire lifetime.

There are these crazy things called oceans down here. If bass do disappear, I'm sure I'll be able to find another fish or two to catch. :D

As long as there is a fish out there to catch I'll be good. Not partial to one species.

I would probably get more into crappie or bluegill. I never fish for anything but bass unless there is some nice crappie action going on somewhere. But even then i would rather Bass fish.

What is interesting about bass survival are the results of Hurricane Katrina on the bass population in south Louisiana.

The Louisian guys can give us more details but from what I understand, the bass population found clean water and did quite well and are thriving in the marsh, swamps, bayous, lakes and rivers.

Mother Nature takes care of her own.

That ties in with global warming which is true but most likely a natural phenomenon. The earth has been in warming or cooling cycles longer than records have been kept and actually longer than the existance of humans. The NY Times had an article about the beginning of another ice age in the 1970's. That went away. Maybe we slightly increase the warming but one blast of a volcano puts more crud in the air than all of human activity for a year or more.

The UN scientists need to keep their jobs!

I would be a lot more worried about aging of our lakes and the affects of removing shore line cover and fertilizer wash in from over doing yard work. I'm sure that will not affect me but it could have a detrimental affect on grand children and great grandchildren.
