Seriously though, lived on my lake for 30 years and recently pulled out the largest bass I've caught here. Was about 20-22" and based on average weight by length is around a five pounder! That's a nice Largemouth in Michigan (down south that's average). Caught the smallest also that day! LOL Don't even need to take boat out on this 845 acre lake, since some of the best fishing is off my dock! I was fishing for, and prefer panfish, since bass is too fishy tasting. Can't beat gills and perch in beer batter with home made fries! Caught all with red worms or night crawlers.
BTW, I'll be missing the gaming festivities again this weekend. Unfortunately, not for fishing, but working down in Chattanooga, Tenn.
