PB Today, how big do you think?

Recommended Posts

I was tearing em up on the surface this morning with one I thought might be a PB but this afternoon I walked back down to the lake and on the second cast, caught this fish.  She's bigger than any I've caught before but I wonder if you guys can estimate the weight for me.  I was and am SO charged.  Finally, a good sized one.  I jumped off the seawall, eased the hook out, ran to the house, took the pic, ran back and she swam away nicely.

No, no, no,  I live a couple hundred feet from the lake.  I took the hook out, RAN to the house, wife took the pic, I RAN back to the lake, eased her back into the water and she swam away without a problem.

I'd say it could go from 2.25-2.75 lbs

Thanksfor the estimate.  Youi guys likey have a better eye for it than me or the calculators.  I measured (I am 6'1" so, looking at the points on my chest and waist from the pic) the distance from the top of the mouth to the tip of the tail and seems to be about 18 inches.  Calculators would have her closer to 3 pounds but who the heck cares.

No doubt in my mind that it's the biggest bass I've ever caught and I am super happy with her.  I've only really been bass fishing for the last three months, about when I joined this forum and I'll bet I've caught over a hundred LMB. Most dinks for sure but some nicer ones too.  Not bad for a beginner.

The Lord has blessed me this day.  Had I been hungry, I would have been fed.  As it is, I was given joy.

2-3 pounders can fight, and make a for a good fishing trip.

It's your fish so she can weigh as much as you want her to.

I'd say 2 pounds though.

There's always tomorrow! I'll be up at five and tube/floating by five thirty. Finning my way to the sweet spot with a cup of coffee in my hand and a cigar between my teeth. Today, they did not get active until nearly nine am. Between five thirty and eight o'clock, I had caught one small brim. I almost went home. Once they started, I caught one small one then bang! I had a nice one, just a bit smaller than the one in the pic. After that, it was really on. I caught at least twenty before I went back to the house.

If tomorrow is as good............. Wow. I can feel the strength and vibration from those fish in my mind even now.

Congratulations on your personal best

My wild guess would be 17" x 2-3/4 lbs

By the way, as long as it's within the law, whether you eat or release a bass is your business.

As it happens, my wife & I had fillet of largemouth bass this evening,

and it was better than anything I've ever ordered in a restaurant.

Must be the day of the dog, and I'm the dog. I caught one just as big this morning from my float, which I hopefully have changed my pic from rock climbing to bass fishing!

I got nine this morning, 6 dinkish, 2 nicer ones and one like the pic on the first post. Man was that fun! It was too windy for the TM jon boats but with those huge split fins I could get anywhere and stay there. It was kinda fun watching the boats get blown away from the honey hole while I looked like I was at anchor.

I can't afford a boat but with this outfit, I can go lots of places. It fits in my trunk with just a little deflation.
