WHY DID YOU KEEP IT?
I can not stand seeing these pictures of big mature bass that people have kept. Big fish produce big fish. Please people let these big fish go!

Actually, big fish make MORE fish, the size of a fish is highly dependent on the environment. Must be a lot of food in kwanis. When the larger fish are removed, that makes room for the smaller ones to grow.

Bigger fish just simply produce more eggs or sperm (Fecundity).... the size of the eggs produced are the same regardless of the fishes size. when the eggs hatch the fry are all the same size regardless of which parent they came from.
Harvesting big fish just makes more food available for smaller fish. I say nice catch and there is nothing wrong with harvesting the occasional trophy.

Have you guys heard of genetics? A bass like this HAS beaten MANY odds not just ANY bass would have. It therefore has a BETTER CHANCE to produce not only fish that are genetically equipped to grow faster/bigger, but also the "more aggressive" fish that are more catchable. If you've read much about this I or tbone wouldn't have to explain. The conxept is called SELECTIVE harvest - check it out. (It's the new CnR).
Nice fish BTW.

That's why I hate urban lakes
Cause everyone keeps everything. Now how did that old bass with that rotting meat taste. Was it worth taking out of the lake so that nobody can ever catch it again. Think!

BB Nitro & tbone
You guys must know that lady, you now, the one how wears the green dress. Has dark skin & hair.And green eyes. She goes by the name of " MOTHER NATURE "!!! As far as I know she has never wrighten anything on genetics or odds!!! As far as selective harvest and CnR. These words should not even be mentioned, when people are having a hard time just feeding there families!!! Don't get me wrong I CnR all my bass! But then I'm not stugling to feed my family either!!!

Harvesting large bass
The harvesting of large bass not only removes them from the gene pool but removes a fish that has taken years to achieve it's size. the theory that removing a large fish only increase availability of food to smaller fish is flawed. What happens is you get a large number of an age class and more competition for food and eventually stunted growth rates. If you want to harvest fish to eat the smaller bass in the 6-12 inch range and the most desirable not only for eating(taste) but for the health of the fishery, next time a bass like that needs to be released to pass on it's genetics and so somebody else might have a chance at a fish of that quality. We all share the same waters and need to be responsible.
