Up here in Washington, A 10 pounder is more than a gift from God, it is a devine intervention and an out of body experience.

There is a C&R only lake here that I have caught 118 bass in one day between 1lb and 5 1/2 lbs with most around 3lbs. I would have rather caught ! 10lber and I have caught a few of them. There is nothing like catching those double didgets.

I've caught 1 lbs tenfold, but never a ten lb'er.  If I fished a week and the only fish landed weighed 10 lbs I'd be a happy angler.

lol squid!

Personally, a 10lber would be quite the experience for me! It would be cutting it close to the Ontario record too!

To consistantly catch big fish you have to target where they live and what they eat.  Lots of big fish are caught by accident, but to catch them day in and day out you really have to fish differently.  

Fish where others don't: Structure in deeper water is my number one recommendation. Boulders, timber, crevices and brush, anything that hangs you up discourages other fishermen. Don't be scared...That's where big fish live.  

Bigger lures in general, but jigs might be an exception.

Slower presentation, no I mean sloooooooooooooow. Big fish, particularly largemouth bass spend more time looking for opportunity than chasing baitfish.

Move out, upsize and slow down. You'll still catch small fish, but you'll have a much better chance at the monster. I don't care if I ever catch another 1 lb fish if I can occasionally catch a 5, 7 or 10. Big fish = big fun for me.

I would have to agree with most everyone here. A 10lb fish is like harvesting a monster buck and they are kinda rare in most places. I would assume that we all have places we can go and simply catch a lot of dinks, but those big ones don't get big by being stupid. I would say that a replica of a 10lber would look nice to my others on the wall.

Chris, you're a saint ;D, as for me, there's no question, I'll take the lunker...

Catching 10 small ones is always fun, but the feeling of catching a lunker is like no other.  I've never caught a 10 pounder (only a 7 and a few 6's) and that is my personal goal, but I'm not obsessed with it.  I just enjoy the opportunity to go after them.  But, there's still nothing quite like seeing a mouth you can put your fist (or even two fists) in as it emerges from the water to make your knees go weak!!
