  1. What an awesome day that would be. ! I live in western Washington and i still haven't caught one over 4 pounds. Congrats

  2. What did George Perry do with his world record bass….he freakin ate that big fat bitch…Season the fillets with salt and pepper. Heat a saute pan on top of the grill. When the pan is hot add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and heat. Dredge the bass fillets in the flour and shake off any excess. Place the fillets in the pan and pan fry about 3 minutes per side, until golden brown. Remove the fish from the pan. Add the rest of the butter to the pan and melt. When the butter is hot, add the sliced garlic. Fry the garlic until it just begins to turn light golden brown. Add the herbs and remove from the heat. Carefully, add the lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. To serve, place a fillet on a plate and spoon some of the lemon garlic herb butter over the fish.

  3. Some of the best bass I have ever eaten are all 9+ pounds let everyone else keep on throwing them back….more for me yummy..Season the fillets with salt and pepper. Heat a saute pan on top of the grill. When the pan is hot add 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and heat. Dredge the bass fillets in the flour and shake off any excess. Place the fillets in the pan and pan fry about 3 minutes per side, until golden brown. Remove the fish from the pan. Add the rest of the butter to the pan and melt.

  4. Great fish, absolutely HATE to see it die though.  This is why bass fishing will die… Too many people want to HAVE a trophy.  That is what cameras are for.  I have released at least 5 5-7pounders in AR this year and that's decent up here.  I would just like to see my children catch big ones.  Oh well guess we'll get used to 12 pound 5-fish stringers before long instead of 12 pound fish.

  5. Nice fish guys. My only trip to Lake Fork several years ago, we spent more time stuck on top of stick ups than catching fish. Arrrghh! The Stick ups! We were like a pin ball being bounced off one then another. maybe a good lake if you know it, or live their, but, to drive a long distance to, and never fished it before. You better hire a guide, and not go in blind. Like we did.

  6. Looks like a crappie minnow to me. I thought everything was "Big" in Texas.   ( seriously, thanks for the pic guys)

  7. I couldnt even imagine that, in jersey if you catch a 4 pounder thats a pretty nice fish, if you get a 6 pounder thats a monster

  8. WOW, that last fish was over 7lbs and you said it's not a big big fish!  Your standards are a lot higher than mine.

  9. Nice! My dad caught a 22-1/2 incher last year. My scale weighed 5 -1/2 which didn't seem right as the fish was hefty. But after that I checked and the scale is dead on. 

  10. I have fished fork since it opening 1980 and during it's hey day and have caught a ton of 8 and 9 pounders but the elusive 10 pounder have so far evaded me. great catch and great job guys.

  11. usually when people catch huge bass. the fish is pregnant. its takes a good fisherman to catch a fish that size. good job
