  1. I guess only hardcore bass fisherman don't like eating bass from the comments. All other people enjoy it with their fish intake. Not always first on the list, but eating it with your other meal of fish don't hurt. They're such in abundance. Why do people always rage so hard in the comments… Murica.

  2. many people are dum, nobody asks about your opinion if eating bass if bad or good to eat, all fish are sport fish and you can eat them, its not like if it is illegal to eat bass

  3. Fileting bass like this would take forever on each one and ur not gaining any more meat in the process. Was hoping there was a key point to this, but no, just Pointless.

  4. no bro your wrong i might be a fucking retard but bass fishing is a sport and if you were a bass and i kept you even though there is fisherman out there that would release you would u be happy FUCK NO SO GO DIG A HOLE AND DIE IN IT DICKHEAD

  5. Wow…what's the most fish you ever cleaned at once? 5? Can't think of anything filthier than those chickens you eat. Chickens smell, cows smell, bass not so bad.

  6. I had some asshole talk shit cause I'm taking some nice LMB home to clean, fillet, brine, bread and fry up so I dropped my pole and my stringer with my nice 4 and 5 lb LMB and said "oh yeah, what the fuck are you gonna do about it?" he didn't have much to say after that. Half you C&R fucktards keep the fish outta the water to long anyway so you can smile real big for the camera with your purdy fish, then release it just to die in the water. If I pull anything 2lbs or better you better believe its going home and into the frying pan. I do most fish up the same way, brine 'em in some buttermilk overnight, marinate in some Louisiana hot sauce for a couple hours, toss em in a cornmeal flour mixture and fry them sumbitches up, mmmmm that's good eatin' there. Ya'll keep lettin' 'em go cause I'm hungry.

  7. I don't know why everyone is so against eating bass. I mean my family loves fish. But anything over the size of 18 inches we won't keep so there's a 4 inch range in which we'll keep. And anything over 27 is wall mount.

  8. No point in cutting through the bones, it will just make your knife dull, there isn't much meat on the ribs anyways, and you shouldn't eat belly fat or meat from any fish (thats where most chemicals are stored). Once I hit the rib cage I pierce through the skin and cut around and down till the last rib, cut back into the meat and continue filleting the tail.

  9. Please don't perpetrate the cleaning and eating of the Largemouth Bass on our youtube channel or our websites.. With all the fish we can catch and eat, why would you want someone to keep a largemouth and eat it? Now, that being said; I sometimes catch and eat walleye, crappie and white bass. Any of the 3 are much tastier and easier and safer to serve than largemouth bass. But, that's my opinion, and This is America, and you have the right to eat all the largemouth bass you want. and God bless you and America too!

  10. This guy makes it WAY complicated. I just like to either cut through the ribs or go around them, but either way the original sooo much easier than this with all the gutting, scaling, fin-removing and head-chopping.

  11. I have never killed a largemouth bass to eat. I have always been brought up to release them maybe because I live in South Florida I have the option of much better eating fish

  12. Love everyone who complains about eating bass. These things really everywhere so who actually cares. I eat redfish… it's a sport fish and it was 100% legal and delicious. Just cause it's a sport fish dosent mean you can't eat it

  13. I normally don't keep big lmb for a simple reason. The lakes I fish need those genetics for big mouth bass to continue for future generations. Now back home there are ponds etc that I will keep them out of but where I currently live I mostly fish big tourneyment lakes. I'll keep a few smallies, bluegill, catfish, but LMB is a sports fish and Should be treated that way at tourneyment lakes. If you are fishing non tourneyment lakes them keep them all you want, they taste great.
