You have to remember were on opposite sides of the world. continents apart. Our bass are a game fish and stocked freely.

I would love to have some of those Amazon bass.

My cousin from Michigan came down for a few days and we went fishing in my pond today behind the tobacco patch. He skunked me with the one fish, but it was a nice one, it fought like crazy, took a long time to bring him in, peeling line off the drag, jumping out of the water, etc, Spectacular to watch. He had a blast.

DGBAMA, I'm telling you, man, you need to come fishing over here.

Note that he's not holding it way out toward the camera. We didn't weigh it but I'm guessing it at 6 lbs. (he swears it's 12 lbs) The deceptive part is how thick and deep the fish is for it's length. I have way too many bream, the bass just swim around with their mouth open for food.
That ain't a 12 lb largemouth...but it is a bass to be proud of for sure. I did taxidermy for a few years ,many years ago and I still have my dads certified 10 lb Lake Guntersville (AL)largemouth bass on my wall. That bass in that pic might go as much as 7- 7 1/2 but without knowing the size of the holder ,it'd be difficult to even guess accurately enough.

If you guys fish Guntersville again, give a shout. Knucks and I are each just an hour or so from that lake. Would make a good get together.

Its hard to say when we'll be down again. Fishing is kind of hit or miss. Even dads good favorite spots haven't produced much . I definitely will try to make time though for a "Alabama tobacco inspection"
