    This one nailed a Ribbit toad on 50 lb. PP down at Sawgrass... Finally wore it down so my buddy could get her in the net. Didn't have a scale but we released her to be caught another day...:beer

    That smallie went 6.54 lbs and won me biggest smallmouth of the series (Four Tournaments). My only "Lunker Club" quality fish (6lb Smallmouth or 10lb Largemouth) and it being in a tournament made it even sweeter! We don't have the quality largemouths that ya'll have in Florida up here in Tennessee. (Ya'lls have a longer growing season and are a different strain of bass) I have fished one tournament on the Big O and we only caught 4 keepers for like 9 lbs. and that is the only time I have freshwater fished Florida. But we do have the best large smallmouth fishing in the country!

    I knew your fish couldn't be Florida bass. Noticing your swimbait. Lol Kinda of an unfair comparison. In California they stock there lakes with feeder trout.

    Great catches either way....

    When I was in California, I surprised to see Sports Authority, **** carrying large swimbaits. 6-8inch baits are considered average by California Standards



    Tight work...

    That's interesting. The Sports Authority locations up here in the Atlanta, GA area completely got rid of all of their fishing stuff. Guess BPS and the like are kicking their butts too much.

    The SA here in an around Tampa seem to be leaning towards progressively less an less fishing related equipment.

    I think you were directing your comment toward me and I agree it is a little unfair to compare California bass to ones in Florida but to be fair I did post my 7 3/4 lber from Lake Tarpon. I will tell you what though, from the little I fished in California and from what I have seen how they catch there big bass there, I will take Florida bass any day. The bass fishing for the monstor bass of California is a whole different way of fishing for the most part, I enjoy working structure near shoreline not fishing 20-60' deep in large clearwater impoundments.

  • FishaHallicFishaHallic Posts: 660 Officer
    Yes I think they are mostly Florida strain but they are a different breed when it comes to fishing for them, the guy I fished with in California almost laughed at me when I brought my Florida gear and lures in the boat, he said you could try but you won't catch anything with that stuff but we were fishing much deeper water than I would ever fish in Florida where I love to cast to the bank and fish grass lines and structure close to shore.

    Also the guy I fished with had around 20 fish over 10 lbs with 2 of them being over 13 but nothing bigger than 14 but he mainly fished for big fish only, he said the day I got mine that we may not get anybites but if we did they would be big and he was right, I got my 9 lb 15ozer and missed another spotted bass in the 8 lb range.

    to the other replies

    in California they stock there lakes with 1-2lbs trout That's what they're Bass eat. I know what you mean i different kind if fishing in Cali our med to hvy rods wouldn't handle they fishery They're water is extremely deep

    When i was there I was told they're average fish came from 60-80ft yikes that's deep no wonder they use 4-8oz swimbaits otherwsie it would take forever to hit bottom

    Yeah those pliers are one of the best purchases I have made. I don't know if they fell or what but gives the pic some character.

    Yeah I was thinking somewhere around 6-8 lbs
