Caught this 7 lb 11 ounce Bass this Past Friday at high noon on a black beetle spin ultra lite pole with 4lb test. Just walked down to try and catch a couple of crappie or bluegill. Aint that always how it happens!!! Have removed 115 Bass since March so might be the pay off right there.
Awesome fish! We stocked LMB into our 2.5 acre Iowa pond in the fall of 2017. Our largest to date (Oct 2020) has been 3.25 lbs, 17.25 inches. I would LOVE to grow a lunker like that in our puddle! Good stuff.
