Your pics make it appear that you take atleast some of what you catch, what's your opinion on this:

I recently took a 22 inch, 5 pound bass from the Yantic River above Fitchville Pond. A few site members have reviewed the trip and given low scores. I should have released it? I have some confusion here.

My understanding is this. If you take small bass, say 2 lbs or less, that is one bass that will not grow up to be a big bass and spawn (maybe it has, maybe it hasn't) and raise more little bass which in turn will grow up to be big bass. However, a big bass will eat more food, which may in turn, lower the survivability of the smaller fish.

However, if you only take larger fish, you are removing a “big eater” which (I assume) has already spawned and leave the smaller bass to grow and become big bass which can spawn and leaving more “bait/food” for the smaller bass to grow………on and on.

Now I realize the reason for slot limits which, many complain about, but I seem to have imposed on myself for a couple of reasons without even realizing it.
(1) I like to eat fish now and then, but I’m not a big fan of cleaning them. Therefore, keeping the big one allows a meal without having to clean several small ones.
(2) I also feel that small ones should get a chance to grow up and spawn, so I will release them unless I injure them in the process of catching or de-hooking them.

From what I have read (and not just from the link below) a 1 year old spawning age/size bass could weigh as much as two pounds. That 5 pound bass I took could have been anywhere from 2 years old to 5 years old depending on food supply.


What is the best for the fish population and recreational fishing? I realize that the answer to this question is primarily one of opinion and maybe there is realy not one correct answer, but I'll take my lumps. Maybe I should make this a pole but the rational options are not clear to me.

Any updates on the new boats.

I bought a Shamino Curado 200E7 reel today, looking for a good spinner bat, or crankbait Rod to go with it. What do you think about the kistler micro magnesium 7' rod.

What's up lou, went out on sunday, fish Titicus caught two nice size Bass.
Monday fishing was a little tough the fish were active but bites were hard to come by. caught a 4 pounder on new croton, down where 100 meets the saw mill.

I like the size of those yellow perch you got the other day.

Thats a nice Bass.
what type of lure did you used?

09/02/09 02:48 PM

Hey What's Up! Nice to meet you Lewis. My name is Vinnie. I fished only once upstate at the Wall Kill river in Gardiner. Caught a nice smallmouth. I usually hit Prospect Lake and I am going to hit Central Park this weekend. I try to stay local because I work and go to school, so my fishing time is very limited. But I am planning on hitting a lot of water upstate in 2010. I go out to Long Island on Lake Ronkonkoma, but the fishing there is hard. You really need a boat (which I don't have) to get in some productive fishing, and even then it is still hard

I did'nt get a chance to get out either, had to work.

08/18/09 08:54 AM
