Post by antoniolopez944 » Tue Nov 13, 2018 7:30 am

I was curious to see everyones best bass of 2018. My personal best largemouth bass this year was a 6.26 out of the washington dc area.

Lot's of solid fish this year. I broke a hook twice on two different giants, but I don't think either was much over 10. I still managed several in the 8's, and a couple of limits over 30 lbs. I had the spring bite dialed.
The year isn't over yet. The trout stocking in SoCal is under way. I hope to land a few giants over Christmas break. :D

Looked over '18. Don't think there was anything over 7 bass wise ;) Think I faired better with the accidental bowfin and cat :-s

That's why I use my first name and last two initials. I'm old school in that I like to know who is who. The whole secrecy of fancy screennames is fun, but TT and the fishing world are small enough that I prefer to actually know more about people. I want to know the fugly fisherman also :lol:

Our tradition is that of the first who sneaked away to the creek when tribe did not really need fish

Impromptu punching grass with 16lb sniper when I figured out they wouldn't come up to eat a frog. 22 1/8th inches. Unfortunately my scale still had the batteries out of it to dry out after flipping the kayak a few weeks prior. I'd estimate 5.5-6lbs out of Shabbona Lake in northern Illinois.

Maybe not the best, but most valuable for sure.
December 2018 club tournament - big fish 5.6 lb , and the kicker for first place.
