  2. Which lure did you have the 3 lber on?

    That is a nice largemouth anywhere, but catch that in the Tusc and that is one hell of a fish! Good going! I have always wondered if that area was good fishing. Now I know! ;)

    thats one darn nice largemouth, isnt it strange how many largemouth are coming out of the river this year. i hope the catfish bite saturday night, i tried 3 different spots and all i caught was a 16 inch white sucker on shrimp. forgot to thaw my liver out so all i had was shrimp. :mad:
     
  9. I've caught largemouth up to 5lb in the river and seen bigger. I've was telling that to the guys at Brians Tournaments last year and they thought I was lying. One day me and my wife caught 9 keepers. Thats why I would rather fish a bass tourney than a just smallmouth tourney. Good catch guys, glad to here when someone knows whats going on at the river. Age has nothing to do with experience.

    I knew there were largemouth in the river, I just have never caught any with any size.


    Action -- I am planning on a smallie tourney, but I think that since anyone can go to a lake and catch a largemouth, it wouild be tougher to catch only smallies. I know guys like you would not cheat, but I know others would. I think it would be a better challenge for smallies only. I will try it to see how it goes!
     
  11. There's lots of ponds around the river loaded with smallmouth. If somebody wants to cheat, they're going to no matter what. I prefer smallies but do catch alot of largemouth in my river quests. I'm good with whatever species you come up with other than bottom feeders.

    That's true too. I don't think that many who would enter will cheat any way! Unless they are not real fisherman! :D
