Good new crazyman, we do. Caught on smallwood lake this past summer. was a cold day and we didnt catch much, but I managed to catch this 5 pounder on the frog, then a 3.5 pounder on the very next cast.

Frogging is so underrated its not even funny.


Sorry the picture is so crappy, taken in my cell with "one" megapixel. Can't see the belly on it b/c of the hoody color, but it looked like she hadn't spawned yet (although I'm sure she did).

My PB caught this year 4lbs 3ozs although I think my buddys scale was off and it weighed more :---). This was the first year I really started to focus in on bass fishing and I'm really enjoying it alot. This fish was caught in 4ft of water (stained) around 70 degrees and was in some thick pads. Caught it on a texas rigged zoom trick worm (motor oil color)

I caught my personal best LM in March of 2008 at Parvin State Park. I guesstimated that it weighed 4lbs. I caught it while I was on a quick trip to get out of the house and didn't bring my scale or camera... #-o I caught it on a Zoom Brushhog in the Junebug color Texas rigged while I was fishing off of the dock. It was also the first fish I caught on a brand new rod and reel setup that I just purchased. I was grinning from ear to ear after that....and I still do everytime I think of that day. :mrgreen:

Stories are sometimes better than pictures, All tho its hard to beat a picture, Your story reminds me of feelings when i was fishing with a brand new combo, Heck i have caught my personal best 3x in one month in November 2009.. The memorys of the entire catch are burned in my brain right now...

Here's mine. She was 6 lbs even and 24 1/4 long. Caught out of a small state pond here in GA. When I caught it I just knew I had the wall hanger I have been after. I was crushed when she only went 6, and I was really mad at myself for keeping the fish especially since I feel that fish would have been 10 or better in the spring. After that fish I keep a scale, a tape, and decent camera with me on every trip. I catch and release every fish and if I do happen to run across on 10 lbs or better, I will get the dimensions, weight, some good photos and get a replica made.

Man that thing has some bug eyes... One thing I am gonna start doing is taking photos on the golden rule, and measuring them... Gunny, that sure looks bigger than 6lbs to me, what did you weigh it with?

I weighed it on a digital house scale, I weighed myself sans fish and then with fish. Both times the difference came out to 6 lbs. I figured weighing it like that would negate any issues the scale may have. The fish was 24 1/4 long and I didn't get any girth measuerments. It was really thin, almost emaciated looking.
