Here's a pic of a 23in. bass the kid next door caught last week from a farm pond. He brought it to us to clean cause they are new to fishing and were really proud of their catch! Yes I would have rather seen the fish go back but instead of beating them down about it just explained the pro's and con's of keeping fish that size. Guess there are bigger ones there and they have a better understanding now what it takes to keep them there.Will see more pics rather then filets from now on. Told them to bring me some of the big gills that are in there if they want some eating fish.That's reeldirty1 in the pic,he had to clean the fish as with me being one handed there wouldn't of been much left.
