GA fishermen catches two teen bass in a week and breaks two records

Recommended Posts

Move over Mike Long we may have a new king of trophy bass fishing. Georgia Outdoor News reported this month that a Georgia fishermen and lure maker had broken two lake records and caught two teen fish in a week. The article got me excited when I first heard of it. It had to be true since the fish was weighed on a certified scale and GON was making a full page article about it. Saw the article and something wasn't just right. The photos just didn't look that big. I wasn't going to call the guy a liar but then someone found his MySpace page and sent it to me. Look at the Video here of him releasing the 14lb fish. http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...deoid=45195538 Here is a photo of the 16lb fish. His MySpace page is an advertisement for his homemade bait. Wonder if his two lake records will stand and he will be left on the GA biggest bass of all time list. ::) Make me wonder how many fish are listed on lists of this type that are not even close but because there was a witness and a certified scale they were put down.

I hate stuff like this. It cheapens catches like your 15 by making them seem easier. Doesnt look 14 to me, but the link for myspace didnt work.

WHAT A CROCK OF HORSE SHAT!

His "16.2" is a little over 27" long. My 13-1 which was a freaking football was 27" and his "16.2" is a thin fish, i caught a 27" fish that was skinny and weighed less than 10. There is no way that fish weighs 16. I would imagine he dropped a couple rocks in there.

His fish is not that long. Look at the mouth of the fish and its open and not at the end of the tape. 24-25 at the most.

I don't know how long the fish are but they are definitely way short on girth. I hope the truth comes out.  I honestly don't see how these claims can survive scrutiny.

His fish catching almost maked up for his need for Hooked on Phonics, I can no read a his myspace page.

And he is either full of it and knew what he was doing, or was too stupid to realize the truth. This just ticks me off. Where are the photoshop guys?

Whatever.  The guy is a tool.  I have a policy of never ?ing when someone says they weighed their fish, but i've never seen anyone  double what the fish actually weighed.  I'm recinding that policy.

He has decided to take most of the photos off of his myspace page now that he has been exposed. Guess I ticked him off.

ROFLMAO!!!! "Raymond is tired of stupid people"

This is too funny. In his profile pic, if that fish is 16 pounds, then his nipples are HUGE! :D

He has set his page now to private and sent me a few messages. He seems a little ticked off. Here is the photo that was published so you all can see it since you can't access his page anymore.

25x18 only comes out to be a 9.3 lber with the formula.

I'm probably one of the reasons his profile is set to private.  He tried adding me on myspace and I tore him a new one after looking at his pics.  The pic of him with the fish on the table and his two fists in it's mouth killed me.

It's "Snapper G" visits Myspace.*****

Yeah and the BR calculator is pretty high by every known fish i have ever put in.

My 27 X 22 fish that went 13lbs-1oz comes out at 15.72lbs  :o

I need to stop using a scale!LOL

ya, it looks suspect to me too.  A few pictures NEVER pass muster when it comes to "records".  This is why you REALLY need to dot your I's and cross your T's when it comes to breaking records.  If there's any way to cast doubts, it will be made.  Video of the catch and weighing it are a must.
