I like them better than most catfish, to be honest. Not as good as Crappie or Perch, better than largemouth. To me, they taste just like Striper, just smaller.

A couple friends look down their noses at white bass but I have never thrown one back. Been eating them for over 60 years. Usually mixed with a few walleye and catfish filets.

If they come out of cold clear water they are fine.

The fillets aren't very big, so we cut them into "nugget" size piece, bread them, and then deep fry them. White bass, rock bass, and pumpkinseed sunfish are usually small, but tasty if you're willing to do the work involved in processing them.

I really like large mouth bass. I like it even better cold out of the fridge leftovers the next day.

Cut the lateral red streek out of it and when you fillet them leave some meat on the skin. Red meat timmed off and they are as good as about anything.

We have some big white bass out here, up to 3 lbs. I do prefer the 1 to 1-1/4 lb size for eating. I have pickled the smaller filets a few times, mighty fine.

This!!!

I trim anything red off after skinning filets . Good stuff.
Any that don't think so, cut such off half the fish and don't on the other half, and fix separately. In the spring I catch 14-15 inchers in the river walleye fishing with jigs.

God Bless
