The state wants you to keep All bass  that  are 12 ins.Thats the max. but I fish  for the thrill of  just catching  plus everybody  I ask if they want  the fish - they want  ME to clean,  Than ain;t  happening !  if I give them to you  at  least you can clean  lol I understand the reasoning  behind  this  but   a 12 in. is  so  small don't know what  to  do  now.

So confused. So they want you to keep the bass 12 inches and smaller or 12 inches and bigger?

That seems odd. Good luck with it though.

IMO: The little fish are wreaking havoc on the newly formed ecosystem. It is a kind of a slot limit, the 12" and less are in abundance so they are "encouraging" keeping them. There is a good video on this site about pond/fishery maintenance.

I went fishing there once in the summer and must have caught at least 30 12" or less. I pretty much stopped setting the hook on the obvious bites. Great place to teach someone how to use a plastic worm.    

 

It has been years and years since I've cleaned fish, but maybe it's time for a fish fry. Bout time i teach my girls also.

You harvest the smaller bass to give the larger ones more forage to enjoy and grow.

 

If you want to ponder that philosophy, hit I-95 north at 7 AM and give yourself a few hours of restful pleasure sitting in traffic!!!!:D
