Fattest Bass

Recommended Posts

What's the fattest bass you've ever caught? Mine was this 5 lber out of trinity lake on a 5xd. Girth measured 15 inches. Almost as wide as she was long:D What's yours? What did you catch it on?

Did not measure her but I think the length & girth were very similar. Caught on a NorthStar  hidden head spinner bait.

What A BBB... Er, WAIT A  MINUTE!  That's the same fish you have in your avatar... You just painted it a different color.

 

Edit: This quote doesn't apply anymore. Dwight had to change his avatar pic, and ruin it for everybody.

There is a photo on this site somewhere of my 19.3 that was 28 1/2" long by 28" girth, almost 100% girth to length.

I was reading an article about the top 25 heaviest bass ever caught and didn't see you In There, Just curious but did you ever try to get your bass recognized or did you just keep it on the down low? I know people like butch brown have caught 19lb bass too haven't they? I didn't see him there ethier...

This being in its mouth probably added some ounces:

The validation process isn't easy if you release the bass quickly. Butch caught his 19.3 on video, the scale weight wasn't witnessed before releasing the bass and Butch may not have applied for any listing.

I had a witness of the catch, the bass weighed on a certified scale, then released the bass. I didn't report the catch and no news paper article. 10 years later I tried to get the catch listed, no listing to date!

Pretty sure this is my fattest bass.

 

She was well over 6 pounds, but I 

can't find the note with her data... 

Wasn't my PB.

My friend Edwin has caught at least 3 Maryland state record fish since I've known him. 11-5 LMB, 8-7 SMB and a 4lb yellow perch. Dude could care less about recognition for these catches. 

 

I have to admit though, when I caught the snakehead in my avatar I thought I had the one. It weighed in at a weak 18lb on my 30lb. Boga Grip (world record northern snakehead is 17-12.) I went straight home to weigh it on my good scale, it only went 17-4   :cry3: Needless to say, I was ready to get it certified by the IGFA. When I saw the weight my heart sank, and I then filleted the fish for the BBQ. In hind sight I could've possilby set a line class record as the fish was caught on 6lb test,  but it was tasty.

I caught this one this past spring. 19 inches long, I did not weigh it or measure the girth.

I don't have anything that really comes close to some of the photos already posted in this thread but here are my submissions:

 

Smallest "fat" bass I've caught. Felt like a fish twice his size:

Second best "fat" bass I've caught:

P1030482_zps7cfbe0de.jpg

 

 

And my PB is probably my fattest bass yet. I would guess between 5-6 pounds, only got a length measurement of 21 inches:
