Not sure what was wrong with her, but she was sickly. I saw her swimming like she was struggling to stay upright. Still smacked that swim jig.

Man if she was filled out, even post spawn, she would have been a good'un. Maybe just an old timer.

Good gawd. She'd be 14 at spawn at least with that head


When I am not fishing I am thinking about fishing. And mostly what I should have done differently my last trip!

Probably truer than you think.

She could have a belly fulla plastic but my money says she's OLD. That fish may have gone 12+ a few years ago. Still a big ole fish but I woulda loved to have seen her a few years ago.

I had a rottweiler years ago that went 110# in her prime. I put her down at the age of 13 and she was barely 60 pounds. I watched her waste away to skin & bones due to disease & tumors. I believe many large bass do the same thing.

Did you notice how pronounced the bone above her eye was? You can zoom in on it- I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before. Had to of been an old, old fish. We were fishing grass lines in clear water at the back of a creek and she came wobbling through the water. Looked like she was struggling to keep from turning over on her side like we’ve seen dying fish do. I just happened to have my swim jig coming right at her the same time I saw her. She choked the bait hard but didn’t put up much of a fight. Was a neat experience.
