"Too bad it didn't swim away"...Shut Up, Heaven forbid that someone should keep an almighty BASS. By the way, nice catch!

Nice catch. I'm all for catch and release, but I'm not against keeping fish either. If I catch a wall hanger, I'm not so sure it's going back in the water either. They're few and far between.

While a very nice catch, I agree with putzin...I think 3lbs would be the biggest that fish would go.

If you hung him on the wall great, if you filleted it great too, sometimes the catch and release crap can get ridiculous. If a fisherman wants to keep a few bass for a meal or 2, he should be able to without being made to feel guilty about it. I'm for catch and release, but only when common sense is being followed. Sometimes I think that C&R is used by some as a way to try to control other fishermen.

i have to agree. spencer lake is my home pond and if thats your biggest fish to date congrats. but all im saying is that lake is going down hill fast. i mean my biggest outta there is 24 inches and 30 seconds after landing that fish was swimming for some little kid to catch or a older grandpa. but thats just me. good fish though.

I just think that after all the time people devote to catch one of these beauties to see one being held looking lifeless in some backyard is just disheartening. and that lake is going downhill. go eat some crappie or something harvesters

Guys, I did not see the fish so I could not tell you other than what he told me. His wife (Thai) caught it and eats what she catches. She mostly catches bluegill or crappies there. He usually fishes for cats there and she eats them too.

24 inches? That would have probably been like an 8lb fish...I hope in that 30 seconds you atleast got yourself a couple photos
