Selmer Posted July 31, 2012 Share Posted July 31, 2012 I'm a recent Minnesotan, going on two years now, grew up in NE SD and had an 8 year exile in the land of Idiots Out Walking Around. I've noticed a definite stigma surrounding keeping and eating rock bass. I had a group out in NE SD this last weekend and we picked up a few rock bass in the 10-12" range while catching big bluegills and smallmouth. They wondered if we should keep them, I said absolutely - just like a big bluegill. All they are is a member of the sunfish family, which pretty much everyone agrees the rest of the members of this family are pretty tasty, but rock bass are looked on as a trash fish. Can anyone shed any light on this? They fight hard and taste great, what's not to like? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
