Spot Or A Largie?


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Hello Ozark Anglers,

This is my first post on this forum. I really enjoy reading all the different fishing discussions about our great Ozarks. Back in July I caught a good bass and since have had sort of a hard time confirming whether it was a spot or a straight largie. Either way it was definitely my best bass, weighing in at around 6lbs on my nondigital scale and measuring 22.5 inches. So, Im wondering, what the general consensus is on its correct species. Im posting a few different pics of the ole girl. Thanks for the feedback.

Nice LM. What part of the Ozark country did you catch it? And was it a river or stream? No need for specifics. :lol:

If fishing was easy it would be called catching.

Caught her in a river in the heart of the Arkansas Ozarks. Had a pretty good current, tossed my lure at the base of a limb that was pointed downstream, as we floated by, I let the current drift to the end of the stick when about 3/4 of the way down the stick my line quit drifting, reeled in the slack line and felt a thump, set the hook and the fight was on. She was pulling our canoe all around. I had a great hookset in the bone of her upper lip, did my best to let her wear herself out without getting too close to the structure. I think the current helped a little to get her off the limb she was sitting on. It was great, this year my new years resolution was to catch at least 2 bass over 5 lbs. This one got me halfway home!!

That's a nice river Largemouth. Maybe you'll get #2 before the year is done.

Last weekend I caught my 2nd bass over 5 lbs for the year. I caught him slow rolling a spinnerbait from the bank of an oxbow lake in south arkansas. It was a beautiful fish! I guess next year I will have to up the ante on new years resolution to maybe 3 bass over 5 lbs or 2 over 7, don't know yet. All I know is I love tryin.

Cheers

Very nice. Keep bringing those reports. Good luck with the New Years Resolution.
