Bass Fillets

Recommended Posts

UM_UM GOOD. Walked in the door this afternoon and my wife said "I would like some fresh fish for dinner". Went to a place I know well and caught 8 bass between 10 and 13 inches in about 30 minutes. Brought them home, filleted them, introduced them to hot oil and had a wonderful dinner with fried potatoes, salad, and Bass fillets. I am now sitting in my recliner, stuffed, with a smile on my face. Going to have to do that again sometime soon.

I've never had bass but I bet it would taste pretty good out of the cold water.

I might try it sometime if I could find a lake that didn't have an 18" limit withing 100 miles of me! :)

Some of the places I fish could use a little heard thinning if you know what I mean! ;D

Bass is good, but Is still prefer to eat other type of game fish. I wonder what Burley is trying to say? Lol...

One of my fondest recollections is a shorelunch on a lake in Minnesota.  We forgot lighter fluid to start the fire to fry up our 3-5lb bass we caught so we were forced to take the American flag off the light standard on the boat and use it for kindling.  

Later, our non-fishing friends met up with us after a morning Bald Eagle hunt.  They had one small male to show us.  Tasted like chicken, just a little stringier.

So cart, I get the impression you're not into bass fillets, eh? :o Me either, too many other better tasting fish around than bass.

Bass aren't bad, depending what water they come out of.  I much rather prefer catfish and speck but if you're under a time constraint then bass will do just fine.

I have a few private lakes that always need a little thinning of the herd. There is no better time to do that then early in the year. I love me some small bass out of the cold water.

If my crappie fishing trips come up thin I'm not against adding some bass filler.

take those fillets and cut them up in chunks throw them in a skillet w/ some butter, lemon, garlic, and seasoning. Then put in a flour tortilla w/ guacamole, cheese, pico de gallo and your favorite hot sauce.

BASS BURRITOS OH SO GOOD!!!!! :D

Before Burley sets my hair on fire   I must fessup.

Now to reveal my honey-hole.  4 years ago I had a 3 acre pond built on our property.  These are the first fish taken out.  I need to thin the herd some so as not to get over populated and stunted.  The ones  caught were butterballs full of small bluegill and fathead minnows. the females were developing eggs and the males melt.  Water temp was 52* so was cold enough that these fish were really good.

I agree, I fish and try to manage some farmer's ponds where I can only fish and I keep my limit of 10-14 inch bass whenever I feel like cleaning fish.  I will admit, if there is sufficient oxygen even in the summer the fish are good if they are properly cared for.  

We throw them in a bucket of ice water, and normally fry during the summer months in a deep fryer.  

Bass over 2 lbs are a no no though unless fatally hooked and not revivable.

Some of my most fond memories as a child were camping at Moncove Lake and eating fried bass and bluegill over a campfire.  No matter how many times I have tried to replicate that taste, I still can't do it like my grandmother could.  I still like a few gills for dinner two or three times a year.

I prefer Crappie, Catfish (for freshwater fish) Halibut, Salmon, Grilled Ahi Tuna (for salt).

Nothing against bass being taken for food. Their are just so many better tasting fish.

Then again, I think most would agree that "how its prepared" can make all the difference in the world.

Peace,

Fish

Finish the story Cart. The shore lunch was just the beginning. When he went to launch the beached boat, he ripped an oil line and didn't want to get his new BPS t-shirt messy so he just let it drain out. It's ok,...the oil was real old and dirty, was going to need to be drained soon anyway.

To save the day, he figured he'd go grab some herring that are up in the rivers for a few weeks. Hope that net at the top of the fish ladder holds up this yr.

I agree. I like Trout from the fresh and just about anything from the salt over a LM. (excluding Bluefish,...YUK) They're just gamier to me but then again, I don't like catfish either so........

I like my fish with shells ;)  Lobster, clams, crabs......Must be the Yankee in me.

I would be alright with eating a bass. My favorites would have to be some nice rainbow trout or some Idaho Salmon.
