Looking for the big one

Share Your Pb Here!!!

Recommended Posts

Hey, you could call this a new bragging board, however you should also write how you caught the fish. the goal here is to learn some more on how to catch some big bass.

 

I'll start. My PB is 4 pounder, on the mark. I caught it dropshotting a zoom 6" lizard, spawn fishing a pond. This is my friend holding it.

My PB was also 4 pounds and I caught it on a 5 inch green pumpkin BPS Stik-O. I caught it in a patch of lily pads in late spring to early summer.

Nice fish. My PB is 6.0 even at 19.75 inches. Short and fat fish. Your fish seems to be skinnier but longer. Did you happen to get a length measurement on that fish?

Nice fish! Both of yours look and sound much healthier than this one. I fished the same pond a few days ago and we caught her again, but the rest of the fish we caught were all ones, with maybe a two. I think I might need to be doing some pond management, fertilizer and stocking, what do you think?

You say your fish was caught during the spawn? Looking at it, and from your description, I'm going to guess you caught a female that had already dropped her eggs (hence the thin belly). The smaller 1 and 2 pound fish you were catching were most likely the more aggressive males that were guarding nest or fry. In my opinion, you have a pond with a variety of sizes of fish (not stunted), I would suggest leaving it as it is unless you're going to have a fisheries biologist come out and sample the fish and water for you and tell you exactly what you need to do. I've seen too many times a good pond was ruined and even killed off completely in an attempt to make it a great pond.

 I hadn't thought about the spawn fishing part, I get what you're saying. I'll keep fishing, and if it keeps going on like this I might get a fisheries biologist to check it out like you said. Thanks!

My PB is 10lbs. It scared me in the twilight at 5am. Never seen a freshwater fish this big in the northeast. The fish in my pic is 6.1 lbs.

I believe every state has big bass. Soon after I posted mine on the ct sight many bass were caught between 9lbs to 11lbs in ct. It surely raised the bar. But soon after the ct sight became a pay for view. I didn't mean to hurt egos.

9.01 caught in July on a 8" swimbait.  Had it been a few months earlier, she would have been a double digit fish.

P.b. for the month of november 8.2# caught bumping a smashtech xxl swumbait rigged on a 8/0 owner beast. Casting from a few feet of water down to 25+ and dragging it back up paralleling a road through the middle of the lake.

A solid 8 pounder caught on my first cast with an  unweighted Yamamoto Flapping Hog.  It was a test cast to 'open' water to see if I could cast the thing without any weight but instead I put it right on top of a previously undiscovered submerged stump and this beast came out and ate it. 

 

Caught him on a spinning rig setup for finesse fishing; 20lb braid with 10lb flouro leader.  Glad I finally learned to tie a good albright between the two.  

 

He was too big for my net which went overboard and sank.  Sorry for the bad framing but it was a maximum effort selfie.

 

As  you can imagine, I've been back to this stump...

That's unfortunate you didn't have a camera. A 10 lber in New England is a once of a life time fish. Where you able to weigh it ? Get any measurements of it ?

i caught my pb this past late summer.  It was 6 1/2 lbs and 22" long.  Had a huge mouth, i put my hand in it and had space around my hand.  I caught it on 6 lb mono with a 5" zoom lizard with a tiny 2/0 thin wire hook.  good fight!

Weighed it and released it. Since this I lost three bigger bass. One in late November. Never had a fish on like this on. Then she spit my hook. I reached a point my rod needs to be upgraded more power. I have a hvy lews spinning rod now.

More power on the hook set.

Like its been said here there's a difference between treble hooks and single hooks on hooksets. I learned the hard way.

Catching a DD bass when not ever thinking about it is a curse. Now your thinking that was easy and there will be more mind set. The reality is there is a few and far between. It's not a given.

I'm just a guy who loves bass fishing it's my passion.

Don't forget I was up at 3:30am fishing by 4am everyday for over 3 months. Every spring till I get burned out. Fish till around 9am.

Biggest Largemouth for me was a ~21" chunk. I never got a true measurement besides comparing it to the handle on my rod but I caught a 20" and a 19.5" more recently and this one dwarfed both of those. I estimate my PB to be between 5-6lbs.

 

Caught while chugging a Booyah Pad Crasher Jr. along the surface (didn't know how to walk frogs properly at the time).
