A group of  us go to florida every year for the past 10 or so years, and none of us have caught a bass over 10 ponds. Lots of 8 and 9 pounders but no 10 pounders. It really is tough to catch a bass 10 pounds or better. My biggest is 9.5. Here is a pic. of a I "think" 8 +

I caught a 27inch Largemouth back in the 80's and like a dumb a22 I didn't get it mounted. I didn't weigh the fish but it had the largest mouth of any Bass I have seen and it was extremelly skinny for a Bass that size. I still regret to this day releasing that fish.

7 1/2 lbs caught this past Thanksgiving. She was a thin one. I also caught a 5 lb smallmouth once.

4.2lbs That is the best I can seem to do on the Minnesota lakes in my area. Maybe this year will change all that...

Here are a few from NW Oregon. I have caught much bigger fish in CA, but like fishing for them here in STS country once in a while.

Back when I used to fish on a regular basis, I always said if I caught a 5lb largemouth I would mount. Never happened. I've caught a few 4 pounders before and even had a 6 or 7 pounder up to a friends boat once, but it got knocked off the hook by the "friend" manning the net. Imagine that! >:(  So if I want to add a trophy bass to my wall, I'll just settle for a nice replica. Should I go 10 or 12 pounds? ;D :D

Holy smokes Dave ! Are you sure you didn't mix up some of your California bass pic. with your Oregon pic.  ::) J/K

I didn't realize Oregon bass fishing was that good.

Dave, you should add a couple of those photos to the reference section.........they're great............especially to be from the NorthWest.

My largest was a 7 pounder from Lake Lanier,(GA) caught 7/5/71.
