10 + pounder

Recommended Posts

I didn't catch this.....wish I had though.  This was posted on another private forum I go to that's not a bass fishing forum.  Car stereo forum actually.  One of the members there caught it and I asked if I could post it here for you to see.  She caught it this morning.  I'm trying to find out the bait used and still waiting on a reply, but here's the pic.  She said it was weighed by the local bait shop and weighed out at 10 pounds 4 ounces.

Well, I have never seen a 10 pounder in person, but honestly, just from seeing pics in magazines I also thought it looked like it weighed less but I just have no idea so I just repeated what was said to me when I posted it.

So far I got that it was caught on green watermelon lizards bought at Wal-Mart.  I'm still asking for more details on where, how it was rigged and all that.  I know it would have been in western Kentucky or in a surrounding state but not sure where exactly.  I'm only asking so I can provide details on the catch and make this thread interesting to readers.

She said it was caught on a watermelon lizard, 6" long, rigged weightless with a weedless hook.  Not in KY either, it was in Brookport Illinois, in a private lake called Hohman lake.

I agree, it doesnt look an ounce over 5 pounds.

Fish looks 3lbs, 4lbs would even be pushing it.

I don't think it could POSSIBLY be even close to 10lbs.

Regardless of cameras making fish look bigger or smaller, cameras dont' do magic tricks.

Tell the guy in the bait shop to buy a new scale. ;) There is no way in this world that fish weighs more then 5lbs.

OK, enough. Nobody believes it's a 10 pounder. I'm not sure it is either, but it's definitely more than 3 pounds. That's ridiculous to say it's that low in weight. Look at how long that fish is and give it just a little credit. Anyway, it's clear now that no one thinks it's a 10 pound fish so further comment is not necessary. Just thought I'd post a pic of how someone else's luck is when fishing. At least she's getting to go instead of being stuck at home and there's not a person here who wouldn't like to catch that fish. Not all that common to find women who like fishing anyway so why tear it down and make her feel bad and not want to do it anymore?? She's reading this you know. All these comments and not a single "nice fish" in the bunch.  I'm sure she'd like to have seen at least one.

Even if it's not a 10lber. it's still a great fish! 8-) After catching that bass I'm sure she won't give up fishing. I think people just want to make her aware that the scale was not accurate. Just for reference, the fish in my avatar was just under 5lb. and looks bigger then hers.

no one wants to make anyone feel bad. We're just being realistic, if that is hurtful, blame the scale.

Were not rying to make any one feel bad.  Thats a great fish regardless of its weight, I would love to catch that thing any day.  We were just trying to point out that it is obviously not as big as the title reads.

I didn't say it to be hurtful, I stated simply what size the fish looked. I've caught many 3 and 4lb fish that look exactly that size.

Well, here's my take:

If someone posts a picture and says they weighed the fish, then that's the weight...

"Nice Fish!", or make no comment and move on to another thread.

Now, if someone posts a question, "How much do you think this weighed?", game on!

These are not "rules", just suggestions.

8-)

Dissapointment is a good word for it, not ridicule or hurtfulness.  You post a subject matter of a 10 + pounder  And we like to see a 10 + pounder...... That all.   Still a very nice fish, by the way.

It is indeed a nice fish, I am sorry if my comment offended you/her, but I merely enjoy joking with people who exaggerate the weight of their fish.
