i found this nice fish getting ready to set up shop and make some baby lunkers on friday morning. but she wasn't ready and i went somewhere else fishing and caught 1-3 pound fish all day. ;D yesterday was ball games most of the day for our young 'un so no dice then either. finally i got to spend some time with her today. and buddies, let me tell y'all, she pushed the light spinning tackle to the brink. what an epic battle! 3 awesome jumps where she totally cleared the water all 3 times. just a beautiful fish. :) and just in the nick of time too. the weather here is supposed to get really nasty within hours i think. weatherman is even calling for a chance of snow tonight i've heard. :o so i was VERY LUCKY to catch this fish. there is a pretty good chance she would've been gone tomorrow. better late than never i guess. hope y'all are catchin' some too. and good luck to all the roadtrip guys while you're here. i think i'm gonna try to come up and at least say "hi" while y'all are this close. :)

weighed 8-4 dave. trav, i have kicked around the idea of a replica mount for my pb. i have the measurements. at 14-2, she was only 6 oz. shy of our state record. i have come to the conclusion that i have to be delusional to think that i'll ever catch a bigger bass. ;D but that's a pb i can live with i guess. replicas cost a lot of money though, and for now i'd rather spend fishing money on more stuff to catch 'em with. the pictures are good enough for me at present. i did think your replica turned out really well though. remind me who did yours again please bro. that was an absolute beast for your area - much more impressive than many of my catches. thanks as always for the kind words y'all. :)

Great fish and story Paul  ;D

I can't imagine what it would be like for that fish to jump clear out of the water. Must have been intense!
