    This was a 25" by 19.5" NJ bass.

    very small mouth. Very interesting proportions.
    I'll never forget getting spun around in circles in my float tube. And even after seeing it with my light on. I thought it was a big channel cat. Even told my buddy it was a big cat.....then when i got a true visual...I got a little giddy...lol..I was holy shit..DUDE>>>IT"S A BASS>>>>DUUUUUUUDE>>>>ITS FUGGIN HUGE

    Had I gotten an official weight on it. It may have surpassed the record.
    I caught an 11lb bass in florida. And this one wasn't as hollow due to it's small head.
    Never saw a bass this big this clean. in person or on the interwebs

    In my boat, on a penn80
    Trolling a live Mack.
    I had This fish(or one the exact same size) take a bait the night before and missed the hook up, and saw the size of it. I had 2 360 members
    With me. My buddy willy ( rip my friend) and another gentleman from here whose name escapes me now. I said to willy" that was a godamn 600 lb fish"!
    That is" squish"Another member here running the boat.I went back to the exact same spot early the next morning and on the first pass bang! 2 hours and 45 min.
    I've taken a lot of big bluefin.
    Every now and then you get a psychopath that just won't give up. This was one of them.

    IMPRESSIVE FISH
    As you state, very clean looking for that size,
    and a unusual shape to the jawline.
    That one would have ended up on my wall if I caught it.
    Props on the release.


    Try not to let Garriga find out,
    don't want him moving back to NJ to chase fish,
    the local populations won't survive a fish slayer like him ;) o_O:D

    You know what would be fun,
    and a display of fishing skill at the same time.

    Get a BH Tai rod, and jig up a goliath with it.
    Be the first.
    Slow pitch a big bitch :)

    Used a Trevala. Thought that was rather fragile as is. Besides. I did pitch the bitch. Took a big jig and slow pitched it over the side. :)

    Trevala are pretty crappy and noodle like,
    so that counts, props on the catch.

    Now go catch something that you can keep and sell ;)
