    A whimpy 3 or 4 lbs.
    I'm pretty sure I had a 10+ pounder once, but it got off the hook right as I got it up to the boat. Figures.

    9 lbs 4 oz. My dad took me to Santee Copper to try for a 10 pounder...eh? The guide he hired got sick and so we got a young man who was just starting his career. He put us on lots of big bass, and when they got hung up in the treetops he would strip down to his swim suit, dive in, and bring the bass up for us. He handed me my 9 1/4 pounder from outside of his new bass boat. 1968....the guide was locally known as "BUDDY" but now everyone calls him ROLAND MARTIN! ;D That was one of the first fish I ever mounted and it's still on my wall. :D

    Caught one that I estimate between 8 and 9 lbs. It was caught from a small private lake in norhtern IN in March. She was so full of eggs I couldn't kill her so I let her go and still doesn't bother me even now. I attended Piedmont in August of that year an it would have just been ruined with my inexperience. I'm sure rotten Ralph wouldn't have let me screw it up to bad, but he still only helped us so much. I have thought about working up a replia soon. Might have to do that now that I'm thinking about it. We don't see many over 6 lbs. up here in Yankee country.
     
  13. My best is 7lb 6oz. I've hung two since I would bet my paycheck were bigger, but I lost em both. RDA aren't we just a regular Al Lindner? Just kidding!!!! LOL

    I got one that was 5 1/2 pounds a few years ago. I took it to a taxidermist to mount. it is now in the trash and needless to say I am doing taxidermy now because of him.

  20. Biggest Large Mouth was 8 lbs. from Table Rock. Beaver lake, ( yes, beaver lake ) is just south of me in Arkansas and is supposed to have some monster stripers. I've always wanted to go catch a nice one. Some day.
