    My biggest was a largemouth that weighed 8 1/2 pounds. Caught it in a management pond while fishing for channel cats using a small bream under a cork.

    I had a black that went 7.98 2 years ago from Grand lake in Okla. Caught it carolina riggin a watermellon seed lizard during pre-spawn. She was released at the weigh in, and hopefully hatched that big belly full of babies. She almost beat 2nd. place by herself. We had a shade over 18 pounds total.

    7 lb Largemouth last June 20 07. Actually a funny story behind it. Was bream fishing in a small private pond with some family. I wasn't having any luck and decided to throw out a pumpkinseed 4 inch a few times for bass, carolina rig. I didn't expect anything and was ready to leave. I was reeling slow and was watching a few others reel in a bream when all of a sudden I couldn't reel anymore. I thought I had hooked a stump on the bottom. I looked out and there, at the time, looked like a monster bass on my line with 10lb test and small worm on a crappie hook (because I didn't have any bass hooks with me at the time). Realizing this, I knew I didn't have the line strength for a big fight, nor the hook to handle it and definitely not a good enough tie job for this size fish. I reeled slow keeping the line tight. The fish never jumped and beached the bank without any fight at all. My friend ran over and grabbed the line. I looked at his hand and saw the end of the line and looked down and saw the hook still in the bass' mouth. :crazy: I dove into the water behind the fish and threw it up on the bank without even thinking twice.:smile2:

    I'm still not convinced that crappy old weigher we had in the tackle box was accurate. I was convinced it was a 10lb fish. I measured the fish before taking it to the taxidermy and it measured exactly 24 inches. Anyone have a guesstimate of what a 24 inch Largemouth would weigh looking at that pic. Is it 7? I know I may get a lot of flack for having a 7lber mounted, but I figure I may never catch a bass even close to that size again.

    My biggest small mouth was 7lbs my biggest large mouth was 10lbs 6 oz.
    For our area both of these giants. Both of them were released. I wanted someone else to have that thrill. The largemouth exploded out of the water onto my hula popper about a foot from me. I almost pee'd im my waders.

    My biggest was probably in the 9lb range. Got a couple that were that big, one out the pond behind my house on a buzzbait and another one in a small municipal lake near my house on a spinnerbait.
