That's pretty amazing -

I don't know much about fishing, but isn't a 7-1/4" sucker minnow fairly large tackle for small-mouth bass?

Too bad they didnt document it and then release it. A fish like that would have produced superior offspring. Great fish none the less.

Wow Larry! That's a monster! They must have been targeting monster smallies using 71/4 in suckers for bait! Great fish!

Can you imagine that! The thought of something like that happening is one of the lures of fishing I guess. We love the outdoors and all fish are good fish but can you imagine that!

Vans: I have to agree, if I landed a fish like that I wouldn't have the heart to kill it.

Crruns: I'm with you, I've only fished for smallies a few times and we didn't need anything near that size. Small poppers, Chernobyl ants and wooly buggers worked fine for me.
