But, oh what a PB it was!!! 

 

Been awhile since I caught a PB bass. It was 2007 for LM, 6lb 10oz, and 2018 for my PB SM at 6lb 4oz. Caught my PB saugeye 6lb 14oz in 22, and my best muskie 46" in 21.

Well it’s obvious already here that my 18 year PB is clearly the longest individual drought out there.

Caught in 1993= 30 years. I knew when I caught her I would probably not ever beat it, but I am still casting. In fact leaving in half hour to fish the St. Johns River here in Fl.

32 years for my PB 10 1/4 largemouth.  41 years for my PB 6 even smallmouth.  I doubt I'll ever eclipse either.   I rarely fish where smallmouth are.   I did catch a 19 incher last year in my only trip to a smallmouth lake.   I bet you could count on 1 hand the number of DD largemouth in the lakes I fish.  Maybe I'll get surprised someday.  

 

When I fished before there weren't any spots around here.  (that I knew of anyway)   I caught a 4 pound 4 ounce spot the day I bought my boat.  (Dec 18 2021)  I just thought it was a largemouth with a smallish mouth.  I didn't take a picture but I'm sure it was a spot.  That was my PB until exactly a year later.  I caught my current 4 pound 15 ounce spot on Dec 18 2022.   I should have used my mechanical scale.....it would have been 5 pounds.  LOL

I probably beat all y’all in total years since I caught my pb Largemouth. 43 years. I came within 2 ounces of it around 5 years ago, and came within 7 ounces of it 4 years ago.

What’s strange is that  I caught that fish when I was 19, and had only been bass fishing seriously for a few years. I have barely lost several fish that would have beat it easily by several pounds…

I did, however, catch a LONGER fish about 3 years ago, that beat the heaviest pb by a inch and a half in length, but was a pound less in weight…

This is the longest one I ever caught-26 inch.

Relax junior, color photography is way older than me, lol.  I'm not sure when newspapers went to color, but the comics had it first, even back when I was a kid.

7 lb largemouth on November 8th 2022 at 7 pm in 1 ft of water on a 1/4 oz Siebert Outdoors Brush mata jig in black and blue with a blue zoom chunk on the back.  Caught it at my incredibly pressured small pond, so I was proud.

 

Prior to that was a 7 lb post spawn female I doodled out from under a dock with a wacky rigged senko in the rain in May!

I guess I have been lucky with more recent PB's for both largemouth & smallmouth. My smallie PB was May 2022 & my largemouth PB was Oct 2020.

What I consider my first PB came in Mar 1989 and just a tick shy of 7lbs. I beat that in Apr 1992 with a 9+. The only fish close to those was a 7lb class fish from Chickamauga while practicing for a B.A.S.S. Top 100 event in 1990 (unweighed). And then just recently, after all these years, I got an 8 in Dec ‘21 and a 7 in Jun ‘22. Both were pleasant surprises, but not an official PB.

St. Johns river explains it! It's a 'Frankenfish'!! ?

 

Since I just started back fishing when I retired last March I can't say much on this topic since it's been too long ago when I last wet a line so I'll just enjoy the thread. ?

My largemouth PB would have been back in 2005, the year after I graduated HS because I asked for a trip to Mexico to chase a DD for my graduation present and I found one. It was an old, skinny fish that could have been in the low teens had she been healthier. 

 

My smallmouth PB was much more recent, in May 2019 at 5.83lbs, a pound off our state record. One of the most stressful fish catches I've ever had.

I can almost feel the level of joy in the last pic, that's what it's all about right there Bob!

 

This is also what I imagine when reading your post......a cross b/t Santa and McGuyver   ?

I caught my PB largemouth back in 2009 on a Jitterbug.  My PB smallie came out of a creek in southern Missouri back in 2015.  I got that one on a tube.
