I own the Lake Murray, OK lake record large mouth 10.9#s(check out oklahomas lakerecord program my picture is there) and have caught several 10+ on a local city lake Healdton OK with my biggest being 12 # 8 oz.
I have one 11.11 off Lake Fork in 2003. Caught it while watching her on a bed with a white tube. She was in the slot at 23.75 inchs and I placed her back in the water and watched her go back to the bed, it was awesome! Had a replica made from Lake Fork Taxidermy which was better than the two real fish I had mounted.
I am in the thirteen pound club With a 13 pound 3 oz.
I have been fishing in central Florida since I was 8, other then the time I moved to Oklahoma and toured around riding bulls. I have only had 7 others that I know would have been ten pounds or bigger. I have had many break my line that I would think would have been big, but who knows.( Of the eight ) 3 were on a buzz bait, 2 on zara spook, 1 on rattle trap and 1 on Whopper Craw. It is something how they can shake a hook. Other then the big one all my bass catches have been from in the eight pounds and down.
Everytime I make my mark, someone always paints the wall!
