What are everyone's pbs? When? On what?

Mine is a 5.5 pounder on a Dropshot during the spawn. (A decent fish for NH)

First time was during the spawn on the lake closest to me last year. Up shallow in the middle of a little channel leading into a cove. Caught on a wacky rigged BPS green pumpkin stick-o. Hooked in the gills so I released her asap, no picture unfortunately but I figured it would give her a better chance. Weighed in at 5.40 exactly.

Second time. This year on a larger lake about 20 minutes from my house. Fishing the deeper edge of a spawning flat during the pre-spawn. Caught on a Lethal Weapon IV green pumpkin orange swimjig + 4"  Kietech Swimbait for a trailer. She weighed in at exactly 5.40.....again. But at least this time I got a picture.

Largemouth-10lb 2oz, Lake Commendero, Mexico, 8" Zoom Lizard in watermelonseed. I was reeling in to make another cast, fish chased it to the boat, released some line and it sank about a foot before my line stopped, whole fight lasted less than 10 seconds. 

Smallmouth-I've had 3 hit 5 pounds even on the scale, 2 from Milford Lake, KS. One on a 97MR Slender pointer in chartreuse shad, the other on a watermelon/gold/black Zoom Trick worm on a 1/8oz Slider head. The 3rd was from Melvern Lake, KS on an American Shad LC CBS Zero crankbait.

About a year ago on a golf course pond on a black buzz bait.  On a "real" lake probably only about a 3 pounder.

I didn't have a scale but after measuring using a video of her lying next to my rods, she was between 21"-23", which SHOULD put her between 5 and 7 so that's my story and i'm sticking to it.

Largemouth - 21 1/2" 6.5 lbs, Caught on the opening day of fishing season in 2007 on Miller Dam near Gilman, WI. I caught my first bass of the year about 15 minutes after I started and it was 18" thought I was off to a great start to the season. Caught another dink or two in the next 15 minutes and then it happened. She fell for a Terminator Super Stainless "bleeding bait" spinnerbait. White with double gold colorado blades. I remember the second I laid eyes on her, the first thing I saw was the mouth open under water and I just about crapped myself right there.

Smallmouth - I've caught two with identical stats 20 1/2" and 5 lbs even. The first time was opening day of fishing in 2008 (I had pretty good opening days those few years haha). We were fishing out of my dad's boat on Lake Holcombe (WI) and his batteries took a digger over the winter which we were finding out while we were fishing. After a few hours and his 36V system virtually dead to the point the tm prop was barely spinning. We were going to call it quits and idle out of this stumpy flat with a small channel that runs through it. Having not caught a fish and not wanting my 5 year streak of not getting skunked to come to an end I asked if we could drift across it until we got to the channel which we did. On what was going to be one of my last casts before we got out of there I threw a Terminator T-1 in clown pattern to a stump on the other side of the channel and it smoked it in the first few reel turns.

The second one I caught just this last fall, and was probably my true PB as it wasn't a prespawn fish that had eggs in it. I caught it on Sturgeon Bay in WI. I had found a small school of fish the day before hanging around a shipping channel marker anchor, but couldn't get anything to bite. Checked the next day and sure enough they were still there, so I dropped my Berkly Bottom Hopper Jr. down there on a drop shot a few times. I decided to just dead stick it, and when I went to lift it up, there was just dead weight and I thought maybe I had gotten tangled in something down there when i felt the pulse of it swimming a little, so I set the hook and it was game on!

I caught my personal best LMB last summer.  It was 4.5 lbs which is a decent size here in Iowa.  Caught it on a white chatterbait.

6.25 lbs is my PB I'm claiming as I have caught bigger fish elsewhere with no scales to weigh. 

I caught one evening about a week ago. Was fishing a RAW08-271 

from http://www.rawoutdoorsinc.com/  Actually got this lure in my LTB. :headbang:

Found her inside a point just across the lake from the Sanders Cove boat ramp at Pat Mayse Lake.

And that, my friend, is why it helps to take selfies with bass :thumbsup:;) I took up the practice after being in a similar predicatment, my PB of 7.12 is unphotographed and still swimming around. I hope to get some pics with her before too long.

When I'm fishing I don't bring a camera or sometimes not even a cell phone!

It's fishing not photography! ;)
