read on the innerweb that there is a mucus by the spine you need to avoid along with having to cut out the red parts of the meat as it has a bad taste.

Fillet them, and just zipper the bones along the lateral line out like anything else. They're delicious. Don't worry about trimming out the red meat. I like 'em better than crappie myself.

They're okay. Lots of people eat 'em. My faves are brookies, yellow perch, and walleye.

@T-Billy Wife fileted them at the river last night. We asked another guy fishing there if they were good eating and he googled it and thats how we found out about the red meat areas tasting quite fishy. Will eat them tonight.

I always heard that too, and threw away a lot of good meat over the years. Last summer I tried frying a few without trimming all the red out, and it made no difference in taste.

@Bird, nice smallie

 

@throttleplate, it all depends on how long you freeze em and who you are feeding them to. Cut the red out if you are having a lot of people over or if they are being frozen for over a month or two. My wife also doesn’t like the red part, she calls it the grey meat (turns that color when you cook it)

 

my brothers in laws would slap me for cutting out that delicious fish flavor. 
 

some people want to eat fish that taste like chicken, some people like the taste of fish

Not sure I would call fried fish dipped in tarter sauce as having the "taste of fish" anymore.  At that point it doesn't really matter what you're eating because all your tasting is the batter/breading and the sauce.

Same rules apply grilled baked or fried

Got the opportunity to hit a small lake I usually only get to a time or two each year. Light breeze and hazy/cloudy skies from the Canadian wildfires was a welcome respite from the hot sun we’ve been getting. Managed to pick off 40 bass in a couple hours fishing just soft plastics again today. Lots of smaller fish in the mix, but I did get one around 4 lbs. and a couple other decent fish to go with him. Hoping for one more trip there later this week if scheduling allows. Always enjoy going to somewhere different as a change of pace, as each lake is different with its own personality.

Got out for a few hours tonight and got 8 of them. Two pictured were on a 6" Trace swimbait and a Wacky rig. The rest were caught on a Siebert arky jig with a paca chunk trailer.

Well we ate it tonite along with the walleye. Wife cut out the red parts, it tasted fine. It actually tasted like a largemouth which we dont eat anymore. Compared to the walleye the white bass has firmer texture while the walleye is more fluffy like.

Fun afternoon of fishing. First location I checked, the bass spooked the minute you dropped a lure near them, but was able to finagle 5 bites. Next location was better, catching over a dozen on a jig and soft plastic. Then right at dusk, under a hazy fire smoked sky and orange sun, I played around with a big swimbait just to see what would happen. Surprised me when i caught a bass on my first cast with it. Landed 3 others, but missed half a dozen bites when they’d bump it or were probably too small to engulf the bait. Was a good learning experience and certainly showed some potential. Just need to dial in the right  presentation and conditions further.
