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.

    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
