Smallmouth creel on the Fox

Recommended Posts

1 over 12” and 2 under 12”

That’s what I see posted on many of the signs along the Fox where I fish.

I get the idea of thinning out the smaller ones. Just seems odd to keep a bass under 12” for table fare. Can’t imagine there’s much of a filet off a bass that small!

Slot limits like that seldom work on bass.  The idea is to remove some of the smaller fish so they don’t overpopulate and get stunted. The problem is, bass fishermen seldom if ever keep any bass and like you said, who is going to fillet a bass that small?  Are these signs posted by the state or local DNR?

I’m honestly not sure. I’ll have to give them a second look. 

I hadn’t ever paid attention to creel limits because I don’t ever keep bass. My friend Kevin pointed out the regs while I was loading up my kayak. Now I’ve been reading the signs and noticing it more and more.
