RE:Spring Smallmouth Bass in New England

If you have read John Gierach, you know how fond of Bass fishing he is with the fly. Funny thing is, these writers love to have a bluegill/panfish fry afterward. Anyone eat Bass/Panfish/Crappie etc? Do you batter them and fry them?
How is it?
I also agree with the point that there are (here in Ma. anyways) many more warmwater fishing opportunities than coldwater. I was in a canoe last summer when a friend of mine landed a 7 lb Largemouth. No stretching that one. Big!
He's still out there too, in a pond not far from Walden that also holds Northerns! Let's go, meet me with the canoe in about14 weeks, oh ya, life jackets required in MA. early season.
