Bass Looking Better #525993 09/17/2020 2:21 PM
by RC51
Well I been hard at taking out my smaller bass so far I have taken 17 more out this year. And it's starting to pay off. This bass looks much better as far as big head small body. I believe I am finally starting to get back on track. This girl was almost 5 pounds.

Not to mention I have some rather large HSB at this point like 6 to 8 pounds large. So I am sure that is not helping any either. Any HSB I catch I keep and clean them for the table. I think I could use another 300 BG or so in the 4 to 6 inch range. Even if some of them got ate I think it would still help. One thing I have figured out is taking about 20, 11 to 12 inch bass or so a year is working for me at this point.

Hi RC, nice bass!

Our fish seem to tap out around that same length. My WAG is that without pushing pellet feed to the BG at our place we're limited on appropriately-sized forage. Our rule of thumb is every LMB under 14 in. caught from our 2.2 ac pond doesn't go back. Exceptions made for extraordinary RW. condition.
