    I would say a "Monster Bass". 37 feet? Is Kingsley a phosphate pit lake?

    That figures with this hot weather. 37 feet is crazy deep! I never caught one that deep. deepest for me been about 17 feet. That was probably one heck of a battle. **** good job indeed.

    Not a pit. Judging by how nearly perfectly round it is, and I think 90 ft at its deepest point, I always thought it was a meteor crater.

    Very nice fish s-10.

    Kingsley Lake is an almost circular lake of about 2,000 acres (8.1 km2) in North Central Florida, about six miles (10 km) east of Starke, Florida. According to some sources, it is the oldest and highest lake in Florida,[citation needed] located on the edge of the Trail Ridge formation. The lake is a very stable lake with a sandy bottom. Its deepest part is about 90 feet (27 m). Kingsley lake is so nearly circular that pilots call it the Silver Dollar lake. There are several hundred docks on the north and west sides of the lake and Camp Blanding is on the East and South sides (Florida National Guard). The lake is famous for its clear waters, water skiing, fishing, and its stability. It forms the headwaters for the North Fork of Black Creek.

    It is also spring fed - there was a time for a while druing the droug that is was not dumping any water in to Black Creek, but it never dropped as much as all the other lakes in the area.
