We have NEVER heard of anyone getting two fish over 16 pounds out of the same boat, on the same day, anywhere. All of the fish were caught on various AC Plugs, which are considered by many to be an outdated lure with the advent of the latest soft baits. Allan's 16 pound 1 ounce fish was caught on his AC Plug "Real Trout" and Steve caught the monster 18 pound 6 ounce bass on the AC Plug "Triple Real Trout".
As far as we know, Steve's 18.6 is the largest bass in the nation for 2006. Consider that Casitas has been fished by hundreds of thousands of anglers over its recent history...and this is around the 4th largest bass of all time. That is pretty amazing by any standards.
