Hello  fishman930 Thanks for your response I would like to answer your question and i'm sure someone will if you start a new post it may have gotten lost in this one  !!  This will be my 1st year fishing Erie.. but you have reminded me of something that has been bugging me for some time most people don't think very highly of silver bass and I know there not as good as  walleye but I find it hard to believe there not at least as good as a largemouth my understanding is they have some dark meat have you or anyone else on this site ever tried them ? Thanks Paul

Someone in the camp last year said there good eating, we kept like 10" on up. I not a fish eater but I love perch and believe it or not they were good also I was surprised. When my dad was still with us we kept a few smallies that we caught  out around the sunken island. Filleted those and cut em into chunks, beerbatter I was like man these are good. So ya we keep a few!!
