new State Record?

37 posts in this topic

Anybody else hear the rumor of a new record, 9lbs 6 oz. Taken on a lakle in the Alex area. Late last week. Story goes, he missed the bigger of the two, caught the 9-6. I know the name of the lake, but will wait to see if anybody else can confirm.

I heard the same thing fishing in a tournament this weekend on the Chain in Alexandria everyone was talking about it. I also know the lake and heard the same story so who knows!

He may mention a lake, but I bet it is not the one he actually caught the fish out of.

So far, I think it is a big fish story.

Ah, the opener fish tale it is. Did the piggie first attack his trolling motor?

If it is the lake mentioned, it is very possible. Big fish taken out of it every year. Agape, where are you? confirm or dispel this fish tale. If it is true, I guess the other thread on where the next state record will come from is answered. Central MN.

I always question one thing. If a said person caught a state record bass but names a different lake as to deter people from pressuring the original lake, wouldn't that be falsifying info on the record application. That would be automatic disqualify as a state record for falsifying.

I heard the same "dock talk" at both tournaments we fished this weekend. I guess we will just have to wait and see. The lake mentioned does hold pigs, but...

If it's official, it'd be announced on the DNR site. Looks like it's another story, just like every year.

Hey guys I'm the one that caught it but I chose not to officially register it. It weighed 9-8 on my de-liar. I didn't think to take any pictures until after I'd already ate it! Oops!

How could you have caught it when I did?

It was 10-12 and I decided to let it go as it was illegall hooked (not in the mouth).

Funny, someone claims they caught a world's record bass and used a simular story. The only picture they took was the guy "straight arming" a bass. Nice fish, but the straight arm made it look silly. And, not a world record.

    • I'm not in the market for a new auger since purchasing an Ion, but I see FF has a Redback electric auger in their ad. This auger looks similar to the Ion for significantly less money. Does anyone have experience with this auger? Just wanted to bring it up as a possible alternative to those who might be in the  market for an electric. As a side note, I am very happy with the Ion.
    • MLR, how heavy is your house?   After reading your experience I was getting worried. Earlier this summer I swapped out my handles with bolts and gave them a brief trial with my old cordless Dewalt. It was pretty much maxed out and likely not the ticket. Just purchased the Dewalt kit DCK283D2 that is 40% off at FF in hopes it might work. I figured the impact driver would work but didn't really want to be hammering on the gear set. Tried out the drill after work today on low speed and it raises my house easily. My house weighs approximately 3000#. No more hand cranking for me.   Wanted to get the Milwaukee Fuel but couldn't see spending $275 for one drill. This kit is $167 for drill and driver with 2 batteries and charger.
