Fishing for prespwn bass at an area I know and hooked into a giant which at first I thought was just a big catfish.

Was glad to have captured this one in video. Personal best and possible fish of a lifetime!

Nice job!!!!

Minute 2:49 is awesome... that two seconds of video conveyed the emotion of the catch very well!

For what it's worth, I agree that it's quite possibly a DD. The simple length conversion says +/- 8.5, but she was a FATTY!

That's a beauty!!!

It always cracks me up when I see how much fishermen spend on all their gear yet rarely do any have a good set of digital scales. roflmao

Ya know it's going to haunt you forever not knowing if it was a DD or not?

Freaking monster. Great fish! I'd guess 9.5-10 lbs.

That's a monster fish. I wouldn't try to guess what she weighs, but I know she's bigger than any bass I ever caught. Congratulations!

Sorry you couldn't get it weighed. That's a 10 in my book! cheers

Thank you sir coming from a guy that has them giants under his belt for sure, feels pretty good! Just really wish I had her on a scale to have the proof. Next thing in the list to buy is a good scale. Not going down this road again lol.
And thanks to everyone for the kind words. Iā€™m still super happy to have caught that fish weight or not!

Hey Fisherman13, make sure you enter it in the ShareLunker program... you'll get credit (and gift package of some sort) with a chance at drawing for $5,000. at end of year. Bass 24 inches and longer, with readable picture on measuring board qualifies. cheers
