Pics of PB's for a lot of the older guys, like myself, may not be possible. I would say my top 10 or so PB's were caught back in the day when we didn't have cameras on our phones. I did get pics of my best fish from the last couple years though. Both were caught at LOZ from the same creek 1 year apart. Both of them were taken sight fishing while on beds so I got a quick pic and released both without weighing.      

Last years (top) took about half an hour to catch. This years (bottom) only took about 5 or 6 pitches before she'd seen enough.

I don't have pictures of my PB, they were all ruined including the negatives when a broken water pipe flooded the room where I kept that stuff, in those days there were no digital pics available. She was 6.600 kg ( 14.52 lbs ), I do have a pic of my 2nd largest:

13.5 lbs ( 6.14 Kg )

Dang Dwight! Both are GREAT fish but that "Smallie" is a FREAKIN' SLOB!!! We don't grow 'em like that around here.

Glenn?  I don't think he even fishes for bass.  Pretty sure he's into trout.

No picture as it was a long time ago (9/14/74). It's not that we didn't have cameras on our cell phones, we had no cell phones. Anyway, best was 14.1. Caught an 11.3 short while later and at least 50 over 8 in the same small pond. In recent years biggest has been 13.5.  Really don't fish for bass as often as I used to as I have become addicted to snook. Only fish for bass from usually December thru March, usually getting 5 or 10 over 8. 

It's not that I'm that good a fisherman, it's just that I have been doing this a long time and live in west central Florida. I'm sure you could do the same under the same circumstances.

Here are a couple of pictures of what I think was the largest smallmouth I've taken here in MA. I've definitely taken bigger largemouths, but I can't seem to find the pics? Oh well, here's a nice smallie (2 pics, same fish):

PB freshwater striper, only striper in the reservoir, actually! 14# (and yes, I released it, to the dismay of the fisheries biologist who wanted to check its age and all that).

This lady was 7.5# caught during spawn in thick salad.

Didn't get a weight but she's my biggest so far.  That's my 10W for reference.

No pictures of my PB, she was 13.8

Here's a couple of Hawgs of mine & my grandson Aiden.

For reference I'm 6' tall

The last one is a personal best cause she won me $5,000!

That's because there aren't any bass in that state. He uses a green board when he makes his videos and just crops the images of him standing in his boat out in the driveway.  ?  He learned that trick from a former member.

Some good looking PBs. The only thing a big belly looks good on is a bass and there are lots of them in this thread!

Not that there's anything wrong with that, right?

Except for the trout part.

That just ain't right.

Delete the whole thread and tell him he must be getting old or something and only imagined he started it.

The clock is tickin' ....

This one went 5-12, even though it doesn't look like it.  I know I look drunk, but it was 98 degrees out, towards the end of a long day.

This went 8-1, and was a PB for less than 24hrs.  And then....

This 9-1 became my PB...

Interestingly enough, this 11 - 11 LMB was actually caught this date (11/11) a few years ago.

This SMB PB went 6-4.  

And for another coincidence, BR member Dwight Hottle took both these pics.

I didn't get a weight, but definitely my biggest largemouth, my sister hand measured it to about 24". I guessed 6 or 7 but I don't know.
