my biggest so far too....

sorry for the crappy picture quality.    I shore fish. so i reeled this girl in..... standing on a half sunken log in a field of 5inch deep mud & silt muck..... got ahold of her, tossed my rod to solid ground. pulled out my phone and snapped a pitcure while nearly falling off my log.

Got her a few weeks after ice out. on a fliping jig with a big beaver bait trailer.

she was up shallow on a brutal day chasing bluegill & shinners i guess. found her holding tight next to a thick post in a series of support stakes up shallow.

my best attempt to measure her figgured about 18inches. she was fat & B-E-A-Utiful!

cold day.... only in the upper 40s. bluebird sky. cold front. windy! with chop so bad i almost got knocked off my log a few times. and the sun was just setting behind the tree line when she bit!

My father's biggest smallmouth for the season was this 5 pound even. He caught it in a tourneymant too and It took lunker for the day.

Actually I just remembered that I caught three that weigh 4 lbs 5 oz

My biggest largemouth was only 5lbs 2oz this season, weird fishing season. I actually caught two largies that weighed this much. They could of been twins. Caught a lot of nice 4 pounders though.

The other 5 lbs 2 oz largemouth

  Approx. 5lbs, caught on the smallest Heddon Torpedo availible. No lie. Caught one right after the spawn that was around 41/2 lbs, but skinny as a rail. Prespawn or a month later she would've hit 6lbs......

I fish mainly for smallmouths as some of you know. Here are a couple of my better fish of this past season:

Rough calculations indicate about 125 - 130 smallies were CPR'd by me in 2009. Most between 2 1/2 - 4 3/4 pounds. I've yet to break the 5 pound mark however, but I know the reservoir I fish has given up several in the 6+ range.

And yes, I do dabble in largemouths occaisionally:

These are my four best of '09:

1-6lb-4oz largemouth, caught on a Rattle Head Spinnerbait, on 5/4/09 at 11:55 A.M.

2-6lb-1oz smallmouth, caught on Rattlin Rapala (Red Craw), on 5/29/09 at 9:30 A.M.

3-6lb even smallmouth, caught on a Rattle Head Spinnerbait, on 8/25/09 at 8:20 A.M.

4-6lb-5oz smallmouth, caught on an XCalibur Xr50 (Pearl Melon), on 9/5/09 at 7:35 A.M.

My wife lost one at the boat, that had to be in the seven pound range. I keep lecturing to her about those wimpy hook sets.

Hey, Wagn, you catch those two 7-1s at the same place? That's funny, though, I also caught a 7-1 this year (and a 7-0 at the same place). Heckuva bass, bro!

Didn't have a scale with me! >:D  I will only say it was over 7lbs, because I have a 7 mounted and it was bigger than mine.  Anybody want to guess what it weighed?

Caught on the Potomac, in the grass, on a frog.
