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

Thats one lucky fish that gets to live to fight another day i cleaned a few here a few years back and there was an awful lot of red traces in the meat and i fried em up to a big disappointment and never cleaned one since i was raised that anytime you find red in the meat of your fish get it out for good tasting results.

That red is simply slow-twitch muscle and since it does virtually all of the work in moving the fish around every day it gets a lot of by-products of metabolism added to it...

I've never caught a white bass. They aren't around here. But striper is, and I target them on the Sacramento River when they migrate from the ocean to spawn. Stripers are delicious. One of my favorites right up there with halibut, ling cod, and rock cod.

[quote=K1500]Title says it all. Are they any good? [/quote

I have eaten a truck load of them. I have challenged a lot of people to tell the difference in them and their favorite species. A few restrictions, 1. must be cooked at the same time and in the same manner. 2. The taster tested CANNOT see or feel the pieces of fish, in other words he/she must be blindfolded and some one must feed him/her. 3. Taster gets choice of 3 out of 5 tries or 2 out of 3 tries and doesn't know results till chosen number tries are completed. BTW I have given this test to several people, ALL HAVE FAILED. Much of our taste comes from what we see & feel. Maybe you will have better luck or taste buds. I doubt it!
