As I mentioned in my recent intro, I am relatively new to bass fishing. I have been trying to learn everything I can with videos and websites. (Glad I found this one!) I found a close reservoir called Piney Mountain that supposedly has some monster bass and muskies. I have been trying the green pumpkin worm that seemed to be catching a good number of bass for me. (14-15 inch variety). Last week I missed (couldn't get the hook set) one particular fish that seemed really heavy, at least to me. I had him on several times but he got off both times. Went out again last Friday morning and landed this guy along with a couple of pounds of seaweed. This particular part of the lake is bass heaven thick with weeds and seaweed and lilly pads. I was nearly speechless but humbled.

What do you estimate he weighs?

Nice fish! I would guess high 4s or low 5s.

Congratulations!Hard to tell how much a bass weighs in a picture, but I would say the bass is in the 5 pound range.
