Around San Diego there are some very good Largemouth Bass spots. Lake Poway by San Diego has enormous Florida strain Bass. They have caught them in there up in the 20 pound zone. Some of the lakes in the Northern California have them like that as well. Big Cliff in another thread posted a picture of one from N. Cal. that was bigger than the IGFA all tackle 25 lb. Largemouth. It was built like a green pony keg. The guy didn't want to kill it so he had the wife run down a bathroom scale and subtracted his weight. It doesn't qualify as a record because of the way he did it. Some have mistaken gravity as hurting it's belly, but it was just a very fat fish being held in a proper manner, and only an insane person would not take a photo of a fish that big. I'd blow off the Trout and target those.
