One of my passions is Bass fishing, I fish tournaments often, we here in north Texas have some of the best big bass lakes around. We are truly spoiled around here!
You could probably use the bass I catch in S Jesrsey as bait for the bass you catch. The lakes here tend to be acidic and full of tannins and pretty nutrient poor. But we got plenty of iron deposits if you want to make cannon balls for a revolutionary war against England!
