Object properties not in return value

I can't find why an object property is not in return value


class Fish {
    public $common_name;
    public $flavor;
    public $record_weight;

    function __construct($name, $flavor, $record){
        $this->common_name = $name;
        $this->flavor = $flavor;
        $this->record_weight = $record;

    public function getInfo(){
        return "".  
$p = new Fish();
$bass = new Fish ("Largemouth Bass", "Excellent", "22 pounds 5 ounces");
echo $p->getInfo();

I'm not an Object Oriented expert, but it looks like the object with the return value would be $bass, so you would want to echo out $bass->getInfo(); to get a string with the info to echo. Looks like nothing was passed into $p. Just a guess on my end.
