Bass are decent eating, but I mostly catch & release them.
It sounds quite absurd for a European guy to drive three hours to catch a few fish and throw em back again, but I understand there’s another understanding of distance over the big pond. Keep up great threads like this nonetheless!

Nice pics of an interesting part of the world. One of my bucket list fishing destinations is Lake Powell or somewhere similar.

I hear you. It's a form of conservation sport fishing. There are other species in the lake that I catch and keep for great table fare. Crappie, Bluegill, and Channel Catfish make for good eats
Being out on the lake sometimes makes it worthwhile, catching fish is a bonus.

@Brent in Az - I gave my dad your recommendations, and he’s out on Roosevelt having some success. This is one of many reasons why I like AH, virtual teamwork.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
