Record Large Mouth Caught At Lake Camanche

24 posts in this topic

Ione, Calif. -- A new record for large mouth bass caught at Lake Camanche was set on  Jan. 26, when Lonnie Owens Sr. of Galt landed a 15.2-pound lunker in the main body of the lake, while using a swimbait toad thrasher lure.  The fish was 28" long and 25" in girth.  After landing the bass, Owens released it back into the lake.

 

Twenty-two of the 25 biggest large mouth bass (LMB) ever caught were taken in California, reports fishingnetwork.net.  The largest LMB ever landed was a 22 lb., 4 oz. monster caught in 1932 at Montgomery Lake, Ga.  California’s record is a 22.5 lb. fish caught in 1991 at Castaic Lake in Southern California.  The previous Lake Camanche record was 15 pounds for a fish caught in the winter of 2010.

Thank you. I sure hope you plan to post and participate more after this first post since it's kinda "spammish".

Being that I've been playing with Corel Photo editing software recently - it really does look faked. Hopefully I'm wrong 'cause I'm jealous!

That is an outstanding fish & pic. The way he is holding it really emphasises the girth & head.

B.e.a.s.t. May the waters I fish hold a lady like that. And may she be kind enough to get stuck on the end of my line.

I thought the largest LMB ever caught was "Dottie", 25.1lb caught in CA. 

 

Beautiful proportions on that bass BTW! Nice Catch!

When Dottie was caught at 25.1lbs, she was snagged, and therefor not legally caught.

I believe they are talking about the lake record. Obviously the world record is a lot bigger than 15lbs.

Yes, the fish was a lake record, not a state record, as we wrote, "A new record for large mouth bass caught at Lake Camanche."  The photo was absolutely not photoshopped.  That's the fish Lonnie landed.  Lonnie was using a toad thrasher.  Many anglers have had good success using that lure.  The biggest fish there are caught during winter, as this one was.  Thanks to all who commented.
