The Virginia record largemouth bass was caught at Connor Lake by Richard Tate in 1985.  The enormous largemouth bass weighed in at 16 pounds and 4 ounces.

That’s all the pictures we have of largemouth bass state record holders.  The biggest largemouth bass ever caught in the United States was caught in 1932 by George Perry at Montgomery Lake in Georgia.  The huge largemouth bass weighed in at an astounding 22 pounds and 4 ounces.  Before you say, “There’s no way!” and cast your doubts on the fact that it was weighed in so long ago, consider that California’s record largemouth bass weighed almost as much and it was caught in 1991, when Michael Arujo reeled in a 21 pound, 12 ounce largemouth bass at Lake Castaic.

13 Pound Largemouth Bass

Tyler Goetzman caught this 13.06-pound largemouth bass from Lake Conroe using a Rat-L-Trap while bass fishing in six feet of water. This largemouth was 24 inches long and 20.25 inches in girth.  Bass pictures like this make me want to start trying some different baits.  I think I’ll run out and grab a Rat L Trap!
