Hawg! Is she still swimmin? I caught one back in 89 that went 1#4oz. On Clearwater(Wright Co) opening morning fishin eyes. Raced over to BJ's bait to weigh it and then brought her back and released her in the same spot. Never had a camera back then, so all I have is the memory. Thanks for bringing me back. Great photography too.

Nice fish. What would the length be on a fish like that?

around 11.5 inches would be my guess. Nice catch!

It wasnt that big cyber.. this fish was flat out thick... Was over 10" but not quite 10.5"(closer to 10.5', the measure I did was very quick, to get the fish back in the water right away, I figurend the fish to be quite old and didn't want to stess it more than I already had).. It held its thickness from its head all the way out the tail.. was a mutant!

I do have some thoughts of getting a glass remake of it, I doubt I will ever battle a fish like that again.. but I hope it do!

Matt,

Iowa grows some dandy Bulls. About 10 years ago I caught a 11.75" fish that went 1# 15oz .

When I got it close to the boat I thought it was a bass because it was so thick.

Nice fish.

RW- believe it or not, I was fishing for gills.. Most of the day I was fishing bass.. then I saw these gills smashing some minnows on the surface..I had a pannie rod in the rod locker.. I had a small jig head tied on and put a Mr.Mino a 2" tube bait by Mister Twister on and caught this fish and about 8 others just a bit smaller.. this was the largest... Then the feeding frenzy stopped and I went back to bassin.. LOL
