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.

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?

    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!

    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.

    •   They're legal until they fall into the wrong hands.  But I haven't heard of many cases where doctors or patients have ended up in prison for distributing narcotics.  So far, the suggested remedy for the epidemic seems to be for the states to set up online information sites so the public can be "educated" about the dangers of using addictive drugs.     So, apparently, armored vehicles, swat teams, and prison sentences are the answer for illegal drugs, and education is the key for legal drugs,
