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!

Largemouth Bass Eating Bluegill

Check out the picture of a largemouth bass getting ready to swallow a whole bluegill.

At first glance you would think the bluegill is too big to fit in the bass’ mouth, but it’s not.  The largemouth bass has a mouth that can expand greatly to accomodate the devouring of large bait.  It’s almost like the largemouth sucks its prey into its belly.

World Record Largemouth Bass

The world record largemouth bass was caught by George Perry in Montgomery Lake in Georgia in 1932.  The world record bass was 22 pounds and 4 ounces.  That world record has held up for 8 decades!  Some people were skeptical of this world record because no pictures had been found, but in 2006 relatives of George Perry produced pictures of the world record fish.  Below is a photo of George holding his record largemouth bass.

Big Largemouth Bass Picture

Here’s a picture of a largemouth bass my Dad caught in Nolin River in Kentucky a couple weeks ago.  It was as big as a five gallon bucket.  He caught this largemouth bass on a rooster tail fishing off a small dam with swirling water.  He also caught a dozen more largemouth bass but none of them were as big as this one.  I’d say it would weigh 4-5 pounds and that’s a good size bass!  We were going to throw this one in our pond but he was dying so Dad cleaned him along with the others and we had a big fish fry.
