I think the idea of having a biodiversity forum, is to encourage the preservation of the species. Chapping Mr. Bass on the head would appear to be contrary to that. Any chance of a fillet?[smirk]:D

Now, the interesting thing is..... I would personally rather have a mackeral for dinner than a bass. Caught plenty of bass to around 5lb and tried cooking them in all sorts of ways - find the BBQ best. Think the flavour is very over-rated.

Try posting your fish on the world sea fishing site / forum / scotland.

The bigger fish will always be caught from Thurso because the marine geography is suited to them. Dunnet will only ever hold schoolies .
