New PB ?

Recommended Posts

I found a good spot this afternoon and finally was catching some good size fish (from shore). Caught nine in all, most of them 3-5lbs., good size fish for around here. They were again caught on double wide beavers and I got a smaller one on a evergreen side step jerkbait.

Then I caught what I believe is my new PB (my old PB is 7.9lbs). Not sure because the batteries of my scale were low and I kept getting different readings, anywhere from 7.2 up to 8.3lbs.??? :-X

I took the pics with the self timer of the camera, so don't laugh at the funny position I got! ;D

What do you guys think, could that fish weight 8lbs? If so, I got myself a new PB! 8-)

The fish is a chunk but it is short, I would lean more toward the 7 lb. all those fish have big bodies but they aren't very long.

Anyway that was a great day.

Hey man what I dont get is that you already had the swiss record with that 7.9 LBer but you never got it certified. You probably would have set the record for your country again with this bass, its probably just as big if you got it certified. Do you like not care about getting your name in your countries record books? Yeah I fish for fun too but if I even catch a lake record fish id get it made official....

That fish just shows that there are some monsters in your lake and it will be no time before you catch a double digit!

Nobody really cares for bass around here, except a few guys that fish for them. Alot people don't even know what a bass is. I would not gain anything by certifing the record. It's not like in the US where you can call a game warden to weigh the fish and even get a prize for a record. I would have to kill that fish to get it certified and that would be a shame. I rather have the memory of catching a fish like that then an official record. The thought of maybe catching that fish again is much more satisfying! :)

I wish, but there has never been a DD caught around here. Bass have been around for about 100 years, if there were DD's in the lake, one would have been caught by now. Even 7lbers. are very rare and are considered huge around here. I wish I lived in the US! :)

I applaud you for your realistic thought process about bass fishing in your country . You sir are a true sportsman.
