    My biggest Large Mouth is 9 pounds, How big is your biggest? How did you catch it?

    Only 6lbs but how I caught it was unusual. Was fishing a small farm pond catching a lot of 6" bass and the bigger one blew up on one. I mean blew up like a bomb. I thought it was an allgator.

      I did very little bass fishing but my biggest bass was 4 1/2 pounds.

        Probably about 4 pounds, but I didn't get to weight or measure it. I caught it early one evening on a small farm pond. I caught a small bass on my first cast, and while reeling it in, the larger bass hit on the smaller one. I released it as quickly as I could to let it grow a bit more.

          Around 6 pounds. Caught it on that famous "one more cast." It hit the X-Rap I was working literally at my feet. I was getting ready to lift the bait out of the water. It almost took the rod out of my hand. Unreal, it was.

            It is not the size that is important, just the pure satisfaction of the catch. I have not even weighed some of the lunkers I have caught, but I know that there have been plenty over ten pounds. During one year, I helped a co-worker, Shag Shahid, to catch more than sixty female bass that were well over ten pounds from Owl creek in Florida. We caught them and moved three or four at a time alive in a large tank with a dewar of liquid oxygen bubbling in the water to ponds in Alabama for breeding purposes. The pond by the office window of Lew Childre, our boss, had over thirty bass that were well over ten pounds which Shag and I caught and put there for show. Today almost forty years latter, I am just as happy to catch a 3/4 pound bass as to catch a lunker. But all the lunkers that I caught back then were on soft plastic worms rigged Texas style.

              Im with ya Santa its the circumstances. My favorite bass was a spotted bass my son caught on a reel we are both familiar with. He rigged the worm tied the knot, did everthing himself. Oh the bass probably weighed 3.5lbs. My favorite trophy Bass.

                Somewhere in the 12-14 lb range. I never weighed it so I could release it quickly before it was hurt. I was grilling hamburgers in my back yard and grabbed a light action rod to try a few casts while the burgers were cooking. It had a 1/4 oz Rooster Tail on it so I was trying for some blue gills that were feeding behind my house. He really surprised me; it looked like someone opened a toilet bowl beneath my little lure... mucho fun.

                  Mine was about 4 lbs. and I caught it with a wacky rigged green senko worm on a microlight spin setup. It was a great fight :-)

                    Mine was nine pounds, two ounces, caught on a Dalton Special in a farm pond at midday on a nasty February day. Really surprised me.
