    Default Personal Best Largemouth!

    Work ended, and Cody and I headed to a pond in NE Johnston county for a little fishing before supper. The pond was beautiful, but for the first hour it was deadddddd. We fished down opposite banks and converged in a corner of the pond, commiserating over the slow fishing, and our ever-growing hunger.

    Cody went off into a shallower arm of the pond to sling the frog, and I switched back to throwing my big white spinnerbait. Off the end of some lily pads, it finally got the thump. He swam at me, and until he jumped, I had no gauge of the size of the fish. After the theatrics, I got excited! A few hard runs under the boat later, I got it in the net.







    Absolutely great fish, and what I believe to be my personal best. A fattie for it not being spawning season. The ruler picture doesn't show the front of the measure, but roughly 23.25", and given the shape, I'd argue all day that it would go 8 lbs. Take that for what it's worth, as I don't own a scale.

    Time to upgrade the PB again!

    i donít believe this chart girth is more important than length I caught a 27 inch bass once but skinny as heck my scale said 8.7 pounds not anywhere close to the 12+# the chart says. Without a scale that is accurate you donít know the weight.

    Nice fish. Close to 8 I'd wager.

    Beauty. Weight is always so subjective because even with length and girth measurements some fish are more dense than others. However, I was lucky enough to catch 3 bass last summer between 22 and 23 inches and they weighed from 6-6 to 7-1 so you fish should be over 7 and 8 is certainly possible. Congratulations!
    Tight lines,

    That's why I always tell my weights in ounces. How about that fish was 112 ounces!!!! Doesn't that sound impressive? Nice work bro! How's that knee doing?

    Well, yeah of course. Without a scale it's nothing but a ballpark guess with some reliability based off of averages.

    Shoot man, hurts enough to think about it but not enough to stop me from doing whatever the heck I want. How the heck are you???
