Spotted Bass Round Up

Recommended Posts

I haven’t posted much recently as my time to fish has been reduced by my commitments to my family. I still probably fish more than most people get to but, nothing like what it was before my family life.My personal quest to remove as many Spotted Bass from my favorite home stretches of water is in full force recently. Many many Spots have made the last mistake of their lives recently. Here are some of the sacrifices. I’m actually amazed at how many I can catch when this is my sole purpose on my ventures. Fishing might suck in certain areas for a bit??? We have had Two really nice fish frys at my new place in Bonne Terre recently and my mouth is watering thinking about the next 😜

Of Course, but the spots are considered invasive on the lower Meramec so at least it might you feel a little better about eating them.

Yeah we’re are on different ends of the spectrum as I release every nice Wally I catch As they are my second favorite river fish here. I had to force myself to start keeping the Spots as I really don’t keep anything I catch. I have been keeping close records as to how many have left the river for a grease bath over the last 6 months and it’s getting to be an extremely large number now as I am on these suckers right now and can go nail 15 to 20 pretty easy.
