The biggest fish you ever lost was? I realize it is going to be a guesstimate but let's hear the story.

Mine was on Fork on Chaney point with a 1oz red trap at the boat. Easily 14 lbs or better.

back in the early 90s at fork thought i was hung up started pulling the rod straight back to me then it pulled back realized i had a fish it just rolled on top of the water didnt even jump and came off seems like it had 20"+ of its white belly IDK i always underestimate my fish size so i'm gonna say around 10-12lbs probably way bigger lol....

When I was a kid late 80's fishing with my grandpa at Fork I also lost a monster and a red trap lol. Ended up getting tangled in a tree and trolling motor battery was to weak to get to it. Felt like it was wrapped up for 10 min before he got over to it then it came off at last second. I've caught one over 13lbs that wasn't as big as that one.

500-600lb hammerhead. In front of my beach house WADE FISHING!!! I was done for the day after that.

Bass? I've caught all of my big hookups. 12lb 9 oz is my biggest.

Now...a real question? How many DD's and SAL's have watched my line dance on by? Probably countless.

On fork I was throwing a 2 oz holographic shad swimbsit and I thought I was hung so I let some line out and something had picked up all the slack and slapped my rod against the boat 3 times before my line got caught in the prop and broke off. I don't know if it was a bass but whatever it was it was big.

Lost one over 9, probably over 10 on a trap in very shallow water. I hooked her up and she took off for deep water. I thumbed my spool thinking I could stop her run. Ha! Yeah, right! She jumped and spit the trap back at me. Earlier that year my buddy caught a nine and this fish looked bigger, biggest bass I have seen in person. I just stared at the water in disbelief......
I regained my senses and caught her nest mate on a worm. He weighed 2 1/2 lbs.

Hell no. It hit my line and never stopped. I almost walked on water trying the get to dry land. Bad idea to use hard heads for bait. Lol

My PB is 12.54 and I had one quite a bit bigger follow a RomanMade Negotiator almost all way to boat one day. I saw her and it literally shook me bad enough I had to sit down for about 10 min. I don't want to even try and guess how big.

Now fish wise it was an estimated 10-12' tiger Shark that decided to hit a bait intended for a medium size (5-7') shark on a 6/0 boat rod when I was off the beach at PINS. She could have ate any of the 4 14/0 we had out but no she had to eat the small rod.

12-13lbs had it right at the boat tried to lip her and she took on last dive and broke the line, was way bigger than the 9lb 5 once I had boated a few days before. Laid on the deck for about 20 minutes thinking about how big that fish was.

Biggest fish I lost would go about 8 I believe. I'm glad I ended up catching the biggest one I've had hooked!

I'm pretty sure I've seen a few of you guys mention the old Spindletop bass club on here before. I lost one in there that was every bit of 16 pounds, flipped a watermelon red baby fluke into a hole in the grass maybe 12 feet from the boat, felt the bite, set the hook, she came up and jumped and that was that.



I'm also sure anyone that was on that club and remembers Mr. Perkins had heard the story several times of the fish that he estimated to be 22 pounds that he had lost twice.

I sure wish I could go back and fish that place with the knowledge and gear I have today.
