    Fishing in Alaska kicks butt for a bass fisherman.

"Nearly 40 years ago, Delbert Grizzle of Flatwoods, Ky. beat the existing state record for largemouth bass with an 11-pound, 10-ounce brute taken from Greenbo Lake on Sept. 21, 1965. The next year, he topped his own record with a 13-pound, 8-ounce fish caught from the same Greenup County lake on Aug. 3, 1966."

Anyone else think this is a little bit "fishy?" Two records in less than one-year; this lake is only 225 acres...

Well....they do stock that lake with trout! :D

The article I have read wrote that he caught both of them out of the same area,a submerged weed bed.Sounds like the guy proved it wasn't luck.....or maybe he got lucky twice!

It has to start somewhere. It has to start sometime.

That lake also didn't and still doesn't get alot of pressure since it is a idle only lake.  No big bass boats running all over the place and with several other lakes in the area that don't have restrictions on it not many people go to it.

Makes sense to me, our lake is 223 acres and after a trauma about 8 yrs ago, we have been steadily watch as exh year, the  5 lb class became 6 and 6 became 7 and so on, each year.  Now this water stands a good shot at holding a record in another 2-3 yrs if things keep up the way they have been.  With that said, it would make sense if my partner broke that record within short time as we have isolated this year class again and if there is more than one fish in there from the same year, chances are she grew to be record size around the same time.

Hope I'm making sense.

If this guys fish were caught in 2 seperate lakes, it would be tougher to believe than if they are from the same lake but sometimes, if you've ever been around someone who is truly born with the gift, they sure can produce.  Just saying, either scenario is possible.

Plus, think about this, we have been able to catch this top class of fish with consistency each year. There are a few with discerning marks and those are trackable. If a fish I catch this year is 8lbs, 9 next yr, 10 the yr after that, the next year, it is a record. I have also been catching this fish since it was a 4 lbr and finally got rights to the good real estate. Now , if it gets released, why can't I catch it again next year?? Will be in the same place, around the same time, easily huntable, and very likely, a little bigger than the year before.

The fact that it is a 225 acre lake makes it that more possible. After 20 yrs of fishing a very similar lake, I can confidently say that I know where the bigger class bass are (exactly) at certain times of the year. Doesn't mean I can always catch them but I know I'm in the right water.

These fish are predictable is what I'm saying . Many guides at places like lake fork rely on this. Take a look at lunker pages on many guides sites. Look closely, different client, same fish.

Just wanted to say that I wanna fish GreenBo and a couple other of these smaller lakes in Kentucky pretty badly.  Can't ever find the time to travel to em during the warm weather months, though.
