15.19-Pound Largemouth

Postby Xperience Fishing » Wed Nov 22, 2017 1:50 pm

This past week I hooked and landed one of the largest fish of my lifetime. I was fishing a small soft plastic minnow on a dropshot rig with 4# line. Never would have guessed a fish of this magnitude was going to bite. One of the most amazing fights ever as I held on for dear life.

Have you checked if this is an IFGA line class record? I doubt many LMBs bigger have been caught on 4lb test. Just a thought and super nice fish, amazing catch.
I would rather jog home from my own Vasectomy than spend Saturday at the mall.

Thank you everyone! It was an amazing fish and everything had to go just right for me to be able to land her. I've been told the line class record for 4# test is 17-pounds. Wow!!
