I know Big Bear has bass, but didn't think there was that kind of quality. I've only fished there in the Winter and early Spring for trout. I might have to get out there this Spring and Summer and check out the bass fishing!
    Um no fishery would not disappear from limited take in fact in many cases it would be healthy for the lake. Largemouth have absolutely no problem sustaining a population. Besides they suck to eat in most peoples opinion and with the shaming done by those that think they know better very few are actually taken, unless we are talking about park lake in the middle of big city's which is a completely different ball game.

    Definitely. The oil that naturally seeps in from all the vehicles in the city makes the meat a little tastier, IMO.

    Smokier, perhaps?

    Mathew do you need a special tag to get your boat on the lake? Besides being clean and dry are their any other requirements for a low lander to come up and fish?

    Thanks: Big Ed!

    Have your boat clean and dry, they also have a decontamination system so you won't get turned away if there is a little water. Other then that is it free to launch but you need a lake use permit. They are $25 for the day or $110 for the season, the east boat ramp is the only one open right now. The bass bite is still good up here, the water is still in the mid 50s so slow baits have been producing the best.
