I made this while camping. It was a break at camp when nobody was there, so I picked up some worms at the trading post and went off to fish down at the lake. I caught 12 bass with the help of my dad, who came down there after he played guitar at the trading post. It was 7:00 when I brought them all back to camp and thought to eat them since everyone already ate dinner while I was gone. So I fried them up in some crushed chips leftover from lunch. Yum, yum, yum.

1 oz. of salt and vinegar chips was not nearly enough to coat the fish for me so I added some salt and pepper kettle style chips that I had on hand. All and all a great recipe but plan on using more chips and less egg. This is one I will use with perch as well as catfish from our pond. Thanks!

What a tasty recipe for something so simple. My mother never tried smallmouth bass before and, in general, does not eat fish except for walleye. When she tried this salt-and-vinegar-chip recipe, she enjoyed it so much that she now wants me to make it for our next all-fish Christmas Eve family dinner. I think it will be a hit for everyone at Christmas time. I didn't change/add a thing. Perfection cannot be further perfected. Great recipe!
