Now THIS is a Minnesota-Quality Bass.

Recommended Posts

First cast catch. I flipped it out into a stream entering another lake and got a hit RIGHT away. Flipped it back and retrieved it back and this thing just swallowed it. No idea how big it is, but I know it's my PB. What's the weight of it? Never weighed it.

Was also gonna ask how big you think this fish is? I think it might be a 4lb smallie but I honestly have no idea I haven't invested in a weighing mechanism yet, I probably should lol...

Pic here as well: http://imgur.com/8Osr5AP Forgot to add it into the video itself.

That's definitely a largemouth, I'd guess around 2.5 lbs, but it's always tough to tell in pics, you could be 6'11" haha- the only thing that *really* matters is you caught it and had fun being out there! She's a beaut!!  Keep up the great work!

Nice quality bass there!I have no idea as it's been a loong time since my last smallmouth.  Sure looks like a LMB above but in the provided link, looks more like a smallmouth. I'd guess in the 3lb range but could be way off, makes a difference if you're a thick 5'6 or a 6'8" behemoth...:unsure:

I'm guessing that fish to be right around 16.5" long and with it being very thick built like it looks like it is, it would put it around 2 3/4-3 pounds.

Nice, healthy bass!

I'm with Blue on the guesstimate.

What did you catch the fish in the video on? 

I thought maybe a dropshot but I didn't see anything below the hook in the video.

Both great catches!

I'm a 6'0 tall guy around 270. I've watched and seen tons of so called "3lb bass" in a bunch of videos and they're long and skinny. I've seen a video made by Mike from 1Rod1Reel fishing and it was a fish that looked about to be 11-12 inches long and it weighed to be 1lb. Not sure, I might just have to give in and buy a scale :D

I caught it on a Wacky Rigged Senko actually. It's like a Green Pumpkin color with Purple Specks in it. 

http://www.***.com/Yamamoto_Senko/descpage-YAS.html it's the Green Pumpkin and Purple color, near the lower end of the 82 colors they got. I usually catch dinks on Wacky Rigged Worms but sometimes fish like these take me by storm haha. If you watch you'll probably see I didn't even know he had it, I just twitched it and that set the hook on his lip and off he went. It didn't feel too big at first but then I went "Oh yeah.... oh no." and he tugged me all over that dock. I had already lost a big fish that day at a lake earlier and I wasn't about to lose this one. If you ever decide you wanna gratefully go back to my channel one day and watch a low-quality video I try to list everything I used unless it's simple like one video I fished with nightcrawlers and your basic panfish setup.

Dude, try Yum Dingers. Basically the cheaper version of Senkos. I use these to Wacky Rig primarily, and use my senkos for T-rigging. Dingers go for about 2.99 for 8 worms and senkos are 6.99 for 7 worms. The only thing you're sacrificing with Dingers is the salt and the weight of a senko. Not a whole lot of weight is lost, although.

I'd say the largemouth is in the 3-3.5 range the smallie 2.5-3 if you knew a length you could get a little closer guesstimate. Either way they're both nice fish!

I see you like Yum Dingers, if you're looking to get the same rof as a senko check out the Eco Pro Wacky weights. 1/32 works well on a 4" Dinger and I'd move up to 1/16 or 1/8 for the 5". I really like them because you can change weight based on condition and they also make your worms last longer.
