Where is the next world record bass going to come from?

Recommended Posts

I vote Texas. Not because I am from there, or because when they shock my home lake and they tagged a 28lb LMB and then released it (true story,I'll try and post a picture later,oh and did I mention that they did it in the post spawn). But because out of all these states Texas is the only one in the country that is trying to grow the world record bass with their luker program. If you don't know what that is check Texas state parks and wildlife website to find out. This and the reason that the governor of our state actually likes hunters and fishermen, sorry California, gives me every belief that Texas will win the race to produce the world record.

Besides every thing is bigger in Texas ;)

good luck

After only eight posts...

California for sure. Except for Georgia no other state has a certified

20 lb on record.

The tagging of a 28 lber sounds a bit suspicious, but I hope we see it someday!

I voted Cali, so many big fish come out of their waters.

California. Most likely somewhere in between the Grapevine and Tijuana. There are a couple NorCal spots that I think could do it though.

Maybe Mexico or Cuba, but I doubt it.

cali gets my vote.  i can only imagine the size fish that would come from there if that state actually tried as hard as texas to intentionally produce monsters.  it's kinda ironic that the big bass production in california has seemed to be somewhat of an accidental phenomenon through the stocking of trout in their lakes.  the only downfall i see with cali is the increase of ridiculous fishing regulations there which could potentially hinder the catch of a record fish even though there might be several swimming around.

if i see that 28 pounder, i may change my vote though. ;)

Ditto and I'm not so sure about the 20lber from GA either.  If we do have a shot here in GA it will be several years away but I won't hold my breath and same goes for Texas.  But San Diego area by far has the best shot.  Multiple 20's caught there in the past. Texas doesn't have a 20 yet nor does Mexico if I am not mistaken.  There's a 5lb difference between a 18lb fish and a world record.  Thats a big poundage difference.

I was thinking Cuba. Tons of lakes and very large bass were caught years ago when you could fish down there. If it ever opens up it could happen there. Lots of big bass that have seen very few lures for the past five decades.

I did not vote

No vote  ;)

How can one ask Where is the next world record bass going to come from? and only list 3 states in America?

I keep very close tabs on the Share-A-Lunker program and have never even heard rumors of a bass in excess of the state record (18.18).

Is it "later" yet??  Do show us this pic please, we are all hanging on a limb here.....

we happen to follow this quite stringently, a pic of a 28 lb LM would have SURELY circulated the net by now but we'll give you the chance to post the pic before we call you on it.

:)

PIC PLEASE!!!!

I love the great bass fishing we have here in TX.  I think we probably produce more 10-15 pound fish than just about anywhere.  That said,  I don't think we're in the running for a new record bass.  CA has already proven it can produce that fish.  Mexico could probably do the same but getting commercial fishing off it's lakes would help it's odds I think.  There are other countrys that have potential as well.  When I was a teen, my dad took me to Honduras.  The big draw over the Mexican lakes was alot of folks believed there were record bass in Lake Yojoa.

Based on all the documention it appears California is way ahead of the game for producing 20 lb + fish.  With all the tournaments and exposure Texas lakes have gotten not one fish over 20 lbs has been caught.  So California gets my vote.

Right, and that 27 pounder that died last year is real. I'll be the first to call this B.S. You don't even list your location in your avatar. Now isn't that convenient. Total B.S.

Pics won't do it either(Although they would be nice), it will take a statement from the parks and wildlife department to go along with it before I would even consider this story.

BTY, if you are in Texas don't bother giving me David Campbell's number at the hatchery(I have it). He has never mentioned any thing like this to me and we talk regularly

Mexico is a possibility because lakes like Huites and El Salto are younger lakes and may start producing some near world record bass.

But out of these three states, California is most likely.

I voted for Cali, because I have seen more pics of 15 lb+ bass from that state than I have from any other.

But I do think that the next record could come from a number of different places.

My back yard.  I put a 2 pounder in a kiddie pool a couple of months ago, been feeding him biscuits & gravy, spaghetti, soup beans & cornbread and cheesecake.
