Thought you all might enjoy seeing a pic of a huge LMB I landed yesterday somewhere in PA.

This is only my third time LMB fishing, so I'm not positive, but I'm fairly certain this may be the biggest LMB I'm likely to land anytime soon.

Person holding the fish in this one isn't me, I'm taking the pic after I handed the fish off to my buddy and this was the clearest picture of the bunch.

We had no way to weigh the fish, but we're figuring 8.5-9.5 pounds based on measurements.

Yeah, even a 3 or 4 pounder doesn't get that exciting coming in.

It was a frog pattern, they were killing that and hard body poppers all day.

No one will believe me, but I was in a group of 5 fishing a private lake when i fell in the water and when I did a large fish, we thought it was a carp, my friend cast an x-rap to the fish and it nailed it. He landed it and it was a bass, the length was 30 inches and 14 pounds, by far the largest bass I have ever seen and will ever see. I have pictures and will upload them once i find the cord to my camera. Would be a state record, but it was caught on a private lake, ehh whatever. I 'll get them on asap.

A large fish did what? You typoed the best part of the story out! Sounds like a monster.

Thanks. We were pretty excited about it.

Thought about keeping it for a moment, but decided to put it back. Maybe I can get it again next year at a pound heavier. :) Even if we were off 2 pounds in the wrong direction and it could've competed for the PA record, it was on private water, so ...

I'm pretty sure it would have fallen a pound short at best, anyway.

oh yeah, sorry bout that. When I fell in the fish shot out like a rocket, I must have landed on him or been somewhat close. Like I said I will post pics.
