After reading all these replies, I need to start throwing a jerk bait this year. 

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, outdoor, water and nature

These two from last season (just shy of 12 lbs) can totally vouch for that as a solid plan ~

Dang! My biggest largemouth was 4.2 pounds (according to my cheap-o scale). Looks more like it would have been bait for some of the slobs a few of you tied into. Caught it on a six-inch BioSpawn Exostick (black/blue). Got my personal best smallmouth on a twelve-inch Zoom Ol’ Monster (South Africa) but it doesn’t count since I was fishing for largemouths and it (a.) wasn’t supposed to be in warm shallow water and (b.) had no business hitting a worm that big. (Not that I’m complaining.)

Storm Arashi (blue back herring) rattling flat 7 caught me this one which was just over 6lbs if I remember right. Long and lean she was.

My largest bass for 2017 was caught on a redeye shad, but it was only 14  . . . . . . . . .  INCHES (LOL).  I don't have much spare time to go fishing these days.

I had a down year for big fish.

 

Only two over 6lbs.... one caught on a beaver flipped under a dock, one on a swim jig.

 

Only a dozen and a half or so 5lb er's, biggest was a 5-13 caught on a jig when I took bclark7b out on our yearly spring trip.

 

ZERO 5lb + fish in tournaments this past season. Biggest was an upper 4lber.

 

ZERO 5lb + smallmouth this past season, but lots of mid to upper 4's.

 

That's not humble bragging....it really is/was a lower than average year for me for big ones. I am used to getting at least 1/2 dozen 6+'s, more 5+'s than I can remember , and getting at least one 5+ every few tournaments with largemouth. With smallmouth I always seem to get a handful of 5+'s every year, but not this past season for some reason.
