Guess I'll be getting some nasty looks next time I head out to the lake! Need to check our regs to see when I can keep them though. Not much of a fresh water fisherman anymore but this might change my mind. I do prefer the salty fishing.
This. Them being coined as a trophy species aids in the stigma of keeping them. I grew up always throwing them back but keeping panfish...now I throw back the panfish (with the exception of crappie) and keep the large mouth.That mindset comes from the popularity of bass tournaments. I spent over a decade fishing tournaments, including a national series and you did not keep, or even think about keeping a bass. After I quit tournament fishing I kept a LM one day that I caught while freshwater striper fishing. Now, more LM go in my livewell then back in the lake. They taste excellent!
Damn, hope he's okay. I was about ten and messing around in the woods when I noticed my shoulder was buzzing. I somehow got into a yellow jacket nest and had several fly inside my shirt before they got angry...and they got angry.My almost three year old got lit up with yellow jackets. Poor thing. I was able to get him clear and inside with 6 or so stings and then he got two more inside the house while I was holding him. One was in his hair and got the top of his head and the other got the back side of his ear along with the arm stomach and back from the initial attack. Those two bites inside were about 15 minutes later, couldn’t believe it.
