I've caught smaller but my only fish today was only around 4-5 inches.  Got the back treble stuck in his mouth.  I barely knew he was on.

My smallest bass was caught when I was eight years old I caught about a 2 1/2 inch bass on a rooster tail at a pond my Dad and I fished alot.Keep in mind I was only eight,so I told Dad the little bass looked like good bait.I fixed a hook and bobber up and threw it out in the middle of the pond.That little bass didn't last no time and I was hooked up with my longest standing PB at 4 1/2 lbs.That fish was my PB for over 15 years.

about 2 inches, I was five or six, and I rigged up a single egg hook with a tiny piece of worm and a bobber right under a dock.  Last year I caught a 3 incher on a huge shad-rap.  The rapala was twice as long as he was!  I wonder what he was thinking. :-?

Well, the smallest bass I ever hooked would be a world record, but,  d&*$, if it didn't shake its mighty head and throw the hook at the boat.  I'm still seeking to beat my personal best in this category.   ::)

About 2 inches (seriously). I was using my smallest hook fishing for bluegill. This bass bit and i jerked it out of the water. The fish flew off the hook and went behind me. It was so small I didnt even really hook it. Then I released it to grow bigger.  :)

Mine was about a 2" spotted bass, it somehow managed to fit the 3/0 Gamakatsu hook in its skinny little mouth.

Mine is a 1in minnow that I caught on a Bomber 6A crankbait. The funniest part was that it wasn't even hooked. It somehow got stuck in between the treble hooks. I didn't take a pic because I only consider 2in minnows to be lunker size.

This isn't the smallest but it was the most enjoyable catch.  The little one grabbed the Zoom worm and flailed about on top when all of a sudden, the bigger Bass grabbed the little one.  I lucked out in that the Sugoi EWG hook stuck the big one after going thru the little one's gills. 8-)

We often get bass just under 2" when bluegill fishing.  Also, we release lots of fiesty ones that are just shorter than the Rapala they've bitten.  There is a moral here:  if bass grew as big as grouper, you couldn't go swimming in your home pond!  The tiny percentage of bass that make it to adulthood, let alone lunkerhood, must know that their first rule is to attack, eat, fight fight fight.  A really angry 8" bass is a model of aggressive toughness.  What a fish.  No wonder we love 'em.

My smallest bass was about the size of a bass minnow.  Maybe a couple of mm longer and slightly with more girth.  I caught him in running water beside a dam fishing for bream to use as bait for strippers.
