22.5 Inch Largemouth

18 posts in this topic

Lets hear some guesstimates or exact knowledge of the girth and weight. It was big...thats all I know, my new personal best..too bad it wasn't season..but I would have ler her swim to fight another day anyways. I wish I would have measured girth!! From what I could find on the interweb the girth is prolly between 16-18?

My 22 inch largemouth was 6lb 13oz. So I'd say over 7lb for sure. Not sure on the girth.

Facebook works fine, but it's blocked at work for some people so it won't always show. Just right click on it and go to properties. On the address(url) field just copy what's there and paste it in a post. Surroung it with address_goes_here

Ok..some more info..I am 6'3 260, the spot on the pic from my armpit to the bottom of the fish on my chest by ruler is 8.5 so times 2 that is 17, fishes gut plus another 2? plus 1 1/2-2 inches for the the fishes back....Are these fair estimates??

Girth is tough to estimate, it's something you really need to measure. But it is pretty round and looks to be full of eggs. I don't think it would hit the 7lb mark though, somewhere in the 6 range. Still a very nice fish.

She is a fat one! I have a 23in on the wall that the hand held was jumping from 6.8 -7 so i call it 6.8. Caught another 23in that went 6.7. She went back in the lake. So you are in the ball park.

I caught a 22.5 that was full of eggs and got a digital on it of 7.2 so i would say you are very close to 7...and we are talking about fishing so i would go with 7 for the story wink

Thats sounds like a plan. 7 it is!! I caught her on a X-rap in between northern Bites..I wish I would have measuerd girth but I didnt want to have her out of the water while I looked for the dang flex tape...Didn't plan on having to measure any girth.

DWW- I see where you are coming from.. But your comment is un-warrented, you dont know the situation.

X-raps are a great pre-spawn lure for bass.. One of the best.. However, its also an awesome SPAWN lure for pike.. one of the best if not the best. So, my question, if you want to catch pike, should you not throw what is best?

If you caught a lot of bass in an area and still throw the x-rap then yes I can say you were targeting bass.. but if your intension was to catch pike and caught them, and few bass, then I am fine with that..

my point.. lets not jump to conclusions!

It sounds like the angler caught the bass, did a quick tape and pict and put it back.. all you can ask of someone who caught the biggest bass of their life while fishing pike.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
