I can't believe I'm posting this, but I put together two of these this week.  Once with largemouth and another with smallmouth.  I did have someone with me each day that contributed one fish to the cause though.  I put 8 of the 10 in the boat.

Although I don't have any pictures I've achieved this 3 times so far this year. Twice was in a tournament winning first place both times and a third in practice for one of those tournaments. In those tournaments my weights were 21lbs and 9oz and 23lbs and 13 oz. In practice was a 20lb and 3oz stringer.

I haven't broken 20lb in a single day so far this year, and my best five for the year is currently only at 22lb 6oz. Still two months left in the year and the bass are starting to chunk up for the winter/spawn, still optimistic I can get a little lucky before the year is out.

Since I need to do something in the winter to keep from going bass crazy, I've been rereading my 2023 trip reports and running the numbers, i.e. using a length-to-weight that I've found to be reliable, based upon the few fish that I do weigh. What I learned is that I caught quite a few five-fish bags in the 18-pound range. All you need to do is catch a couple four-to-five-pound bass and then add three 17"-18" bass. Since I catch multiple 17 to 18-inchers most trips, the key is to catch a couple four-+-pounders. That's the tricky part, for those bigger bass have the strength to reach the weeds and free themselves.
