You May Eat the Bass

The third Saturday in June was the opening day to keep Black Bass (largemouth/smallmouth) with a daily limit of 5 and a minimum length of 12". Penn State offers a free publication, "Proper Care and Handling of Fish From Stream to Table", which is a helpful guide to help begin your culinary bass experience. has some delicious looking bass recipes including the following:

Grilled Cajun Bass Recipe


• 2 pounds of bass fillets
• 1/4 cup melted butter
• salt and pepper to taste
• 1/2 tsp. cajun spice
• 1/4 tsp. onion salt
• 1/4 tsp. paprika
• 1/4 tsp. garlic salt

Preheat barbecue grill or prepare open fire. Lay the bass fillets flat on aluminum foil. (Do not overlap the bass fillets) Baste bass fillets with butter. Sprinkle remaining ingredients evenly over fillets. Wrap heavy-duty aluminum foil around the bass, making a sealed cooking bag. Make sure to seal tightly so no steam escapes. Place bag on grill and cook for 7-10 minutes. (Do not flip) Use caution when opening foil.
