Facebook fans debate: Hawgs or lots of little bass

Do you look for the one fish of a lifetime, or are you happier catching lots of bass? This is the question we posed on the B.A.S.S. Facebook page Nov. 15, and the feedback was surely a mixed bag.

The vote was split: 37 percent chose quantity, and 41 percent chose quality. A large portion, 22 percent, wouldn’t pick a side: They’re just happy to be on the water, they say!

Here’s a selection of responses for each side. Which side do you take? Join the conversation on Facebook!

I’m happy chasing lots of bass while searching for the fish of my lifetime! (Luis Zuniga)

I just fish to catch lots of bass because eventually that big one will hit. (Rory Joseph Saliger)


That’s like asking me if I want $35 a day for 80 years or a check for a million dollars ... fish of a lifetime! (Michael Hoch)

I want to break the state record! (Eric Schrock)

Go big or go home! (Steve Kappel)


The best thing I ever catch is time with my son. (Andy Knepp)
