Best day of Largemouth Bass fishing ever! 13 bass, 6 bass from 4-7 pounds, 2 bass over 6 pounds, and Even the Girlfriend caught a 5 Pounder!!



Beat my personal best, twice, girlfriend also beat her personal best.



Was a very slow start but I found the bass around noon, and HAMMERED em with a very very slow chartuese spinnerbait over some nice woody structure.



Been driving myself nuts lately waiting for stripers to arrive in my neck of the ocean, but I think this will get me by for now!



More pics in comments, too many to put into one report!



Tight Lines




The girlfriends 5 pounder


6-7 pounder


a second 6-7 pounder!


Release the beast!!!


4-5 pounder

Man I sometimes wish I wasnt a 6'4" goon, I make all my fish look smaller haha. Doesnt look like it in the pic but my girlfriends fish, and the first fish pictured in the comments section are pretty much identical in size. The pics dont do them justice.

you need to hold the fish further from your body and it will make the fish look bigger!!

Great second post man, it sounds like you haven't had too much luck this season so far. I'm sorry that my only scale is a $230 boga grip, but I'm sure its pretty accurate, thanks for contributing to the site.

A 7lb bass is at least 22 1/2 inches long.You are better using the formula of Lenght x lenght x length divided by 1600 = live weight almost to the ounce on largemouth bass.I havent had good luck with bogas at giving an accurate weight on any thing under 10 lbs.There is amother formula that uses the girth but getting a accurate girth messurment on a live flopping fish is a pain in the $%#.Oh by the way some really nice bass you have there but a big heads up, bass season is now CLOSED !! one long island as of April 1st.Unless you were fishing Artist lake .Bydenburg or Belmont state park.Randall pond in ridge is also open to year round catch and release.And oh yea $230 on a bogagrip in my eyes is a foolish purchase.Getting BASS THUMB are part of the battle scars a fisherman can brag about.

Thanks flounder,

Those two big girls that I said were between 6 and 7 pounds were pretty much identical in size. I measured one of them just too see and she was 21 1/2 inches long with a girth of 15 inches. I checked out a couple of those formulas you mentioned out of curiosity and most of them have a bass with those measurements being around 6 pounds - which is what my boga said they were, between 6 and 7, but realistically closer to 6. As for a boga grip being I foolish purchase, I am almost offended by that statement. I am a surfcaster, the boga is one of the most important things I carry. I usually fish alone, and always let my big girls go, but not before I safely weigh them, instead of dragging them into a tackle shop just to get them weighed like a lot of people do. I did not buy it for freshwater bass, but rather brought it along with me because I know how enormous the bass get where I fish, which is not where you think.

I figured you would find out or someone would tell you that you were off on your dates there, that's why I didn't say anything
