No clue but I would say I caught at least 5 4 lb smallmouth. Definitely got at least 5 3 pound smallmouth so somewhere between 15-20 lbs. I bet I have only caught 1 or 2 largemouth in the 3 lb class for 2017-2018. All this being said, the week between Christmas and new year is always the best fishing week of the year so there is still room for improvement

6-2, 5-0 and three over 4 lbs.  Numbers were excellent this year, lots of healthy fish in the 2 -3 lb class, but just the two over 5.   Then again, we still have six weeks left...

I don't weight mine anymore, I measure them.  In my first two years back at bass fishing I caught one bass over 20 inches.  This year was the year to learn to use a jig...........I caught 9 over 20 inches!

Well, it ain't over yet, but I caught a 7.1 lb that you can see in my profile pic, a few in the 6's and a few in the 5's. It was the best year I've had in a long time in terms of big fish. I had been in an almost 2 year slump. Most of them came in the late summer/early fall transition.

I'm only looking at 20 to 25 lbs . Been in a big bass slump for two years now . I'm catching some long ones but skinny . The lake needs to be thinned out but the conservation dept is stubbornly keeping a slot limit that is not working . Its been in place since the 1970's .

A couple of six pounders and a handful of 5 pounders. I still have not met my 2018 goal of landing one 7+ pounds, but I do have about 6 weeks left to fish.

 

My 12 year old son had a good year with four in the five pound range and a bunch of 3 and 4 pounders. But he's about to turn 13 in a week so his life is all about being moody. He'd rather sit and watch me fish than throw a line in the water. Kids these days.😀

Did good with size early in the season, then it was more number than size for me this year. Didn't fish as much as I usually do due to schedule. Biggest was just under 8, 2 right a 6, and a few around 5. No studs this year. I did catch my 2 PB crappies on back to back casts though while bass fishing.

It's time to tell the truth. The only way I could catch 5 to get in to double digits would be in my dreams. I think I caught one about 3 pounds back early in the season.What is odd for me is the last fish I caught this year was a smallmouth about 1.5 pounds. This was a really lousy year for me.

8-5, 6-13, 6-10, 6-3 and 6-00.  All northern strain large mouth. I had one decent smallie right at four pounds. Tough year. Three of my buddies each caught their personal best large mouths while fishing with me and that was the best.
