Rock Bass

10 posts in this topic

Last week whe nwe were on vacation up to Park Rapids we caught a bunch of huge rock bass. Are these things any good to eat? Any flavor or they just taste like [PoorWordUsage]? If so how do you prepare them.

We cook our fish by melting a stick of butter flavor Crisco and then put the fillets in Frying Magic and then fry them to a light golden brown.

He is from Iowa. grin

Just kiddin with you Whiskers. Scroll down to the bottom of the main forum page and check out the recipe sharing section. There is a thread in there about Rock Bass. Although I have never consumed one, I know people that have. They are in the pan fish family, can't be too bad.

They are edible.. however have more bones than most want to pick through.

they are not saught after table fare. If you choose to eat them, you save us from having to take them off our hook and I thank you for that!.

from what I hear, they arent that bad, once you get by picking through all the bones and such.

I was waiting for the remark about Iowa!! HAHA!! We caught a bunch of them on Fish Hook Lake and man were they huge like round little footballs. If I had a scale in the boat it would be interesting to see what they weighed. Don't worry we didn't keep any of them or eat any but was just curious as it looks like they would have a bunch of meat when pantlegged filleted out.

Thanks for the info.

What'd be left for the "rocky flip" if they all became table fare?

    • I apologize if that came out wrong. The idea might very well be the best route to go. It's just that over the past 25 years or so I have seen many attempts to save a dollar that cost a buck and a half to do lol.    Here are my two cents. If you have a slab and you want to pour on top of it while keeping the same footprint that sounds pretty doable and could probably save some money if you don't have to change drain lines, run water, heat runs, electrical etc into the slab.   If you intend to tie into the existing slab and run zones of pex across the joint and have the new and old floors end up at the same elevation it still can be done. Some contractors will not want to mess with tying into and raising the elevation of the slabs and will prefer to start from scratch especially if you as the homeowner want them to warranty the finished product.  The critical thing would be to use enough rebar drilled into the old slab and have enough compaction and sufficient footings to make sure the slabs stay where they are without settling. That would make all kinds of problems with the pex.    Hopefully that response came across better.
    • It'll be interesting to see if the team plays a little harder in front of a different goalie. 
    • Hawg, I'm with you on this one !
    • Check and see if you have a video output on you device. You may be able to record to a digital device.
    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
