I have a spot South of me with giant Pumkinseed. I hooked one that I had lipped like a Bass and turned to a buddy I was fishing with and said "Look at the size of this Pumkinseed" He made some comment that involved at least two swear words. We measured and weighed it. Then I tossed it back.
Later I looked up the state and IGFA all tackle record which it would have destroyed both.
OK, thanks fichy, you had me thinking there was a river there I had missed. I should also add that a lot of the lakes there have gigantic Largemouth.
Im glad you didnt destroy that record! My son had got it at 6years old and held it for 6 years at 1lb 3oz and it was his pride and joy to brag about as a little kid! Then a girl broke it by 3ozs but he was old enough to take the heat! Haha!
