I know, I still have this ear flap hat and feel like someone needs to tell me to take off like a hose-head..!

Not sure how I missed this since I was the OP and you were the first one to post after my initial start of it.

 

Regardless, you predicted an 8 pounder.

 

It took you a grand total of 2 whole days to full fill your own prediction.

I predict I will catch a bass this year that is between 1 and 10 lbs.  It will come out of either a creek, river, pond, or lake.  I will be fishing with either a topwater, bottom contact bait or a bait moving through the water column.  Finally, this bass will be caught sometime in 2024.

I feel like I'm going to get into something huge. For me that will be a 6-8lb largemouth. It'll be a new PB for me. I beat the bank pretty hard at my local lake, and learning all of its ways, I just have more and more success.

 

Only thing will make it better is if my fishing buddy is there and we can weigh it on 2 scales. He'll have his phone for pics too; I usually don't carry my phone with me while I'm fishing.

6 lb LM is realistic. Would love to nab a PB which would be over 8lbs. They're definitely swimming around me, I just gotta get better and lucky. Lucky is easier than better 😎

Not so much a guess as a hope….the same hope I have every year.  I’ll be gunning for my best largemouth soon because we leave Friday for headwaters in Florida for a week.  My goal is a double digit.  We’ll be heading to Michigan and lake St Clair at the end of May and my smallmouth goal is one over 6lbs.  If I get 7 or above, I’ll get a replica made.  For the majority of the year fishing here locally in Virginia, it’s more about the fun times and the variety of freshwater fish we catch.  

Well, the first part of my prediction is a bust.  Not a bad bust mind you but a bust nonetheless.  Just got back from Florida and the weather really messed with us on Headwaters.  40 degree nights, 50 degree days, and 30mph winds made fishing tough.  We got a lot of numbers but not anything in the double digits.  I’m totally good with it when we were doing just as good as the shiner guides and a lot better than most of the local talent throwing artificials.  Best I could do was a 7.  Sounds like we should have ventured down to Okeechobee and rubbed elbows with the pros in the open.  Roland was up on Headwaters while Scott was setting records.  I see he made it down for the final weigh in.  On to the next goal which is my Smallmouth trip to lake St Clair in May.

Its not a complete bust, yet.  2024 is only a month old.  You've got almost 11 more months to fulfill your own prediction.

@gimruis you are correct but my odds just went waaaay down for the largemouth.  I’m not complaining and will be giving it my best shot. 😉

As bad as the year has started, I'm going to go with 5.75lbs and 21.25". I'll go out on a limb and say it'll be on a jig. 

 

Smallmouth will be 3.75lbs 19.5" and I'm going to catch it next month in Oklahoma on a crankbait.

Catching a LM over 5lb. has been extremely tough the past few seasons, mostly because I haven't been targeting waters known for better than average fish.  I plan on hitting a couple of power plant lakes in March and have a feeling that is when (if) I break the 6lb. mark this season.

Tough to think about an entire year and the possibilities. Work-related this will be my busiest year by far so finding time to fish will be difficult. I will set my prediction at a conservative 7lbs +/- 0.5lb. I am still in TX… albeit central TX, so anything can happen.
