my $0.02 is that there are no 20# bass in Texas public lakes because it would have already been caught. There are too many good fisherman in this state to have not caught a 20#'er by now.

However, a private lake or pond is another matter.

I agree Texas has some very good fisherman,but we dont really have many guys who just go out and hunt that one fish like cali does.Plus our lakes are huge and I believe there are alot of fish in our lakes that never see a bait.

There may have been in the late '80s to mid '90s but doubtful today. Possibly in a heavily managed private lake. We really have too much extreme temp ranges in Texas for optimal growth and longevity.

I agree about the temps,but a bass like that will most likely dwell in deep water so temps shouldnt matter to much possibly.I wish some kid fishing a earthworm for perch would catch it lol

Except in summer when the thermocline would force her shallower and more susceptible to catching.

Maybe, but again, one would think that she would be caught at least once during the spawn. Maybe in the summer.

Regardless, it is fun to think about where they might be located in these lakes.

True but even still most of our best big bass lakes have a thermocline around 20 to 25 foot,thats still alot of water.

A lake the size of Toledo must have millions of bass swimming around,there is no possible way every fish in that lake even remotely gets close to being caught.

It will be a big deal if/when it happens. I hope somebody on the TFF is the one who catches her.
