I figured real big Bass were like that, but we don't get Bass near as big as in Florida & California.
Our catfish are great in the spring. Later in the Summer they get muddy tasting too.
Kinda like our Redfish. Big fish are fun, but not near as tasty. Our limit here is from 18 to 27 inches, this one was 33 1/2. Still we would much rather take home that 22 to 23 incher. Perfect size for the grill and my Famous One-Eyed Grandma's Louisiana Grilled Redfish.
Would like to tie into one of those bruiser trout. We tried up at Kueka Lake in the Finger Lake Region of NY, some time back, but had no luck.
