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.
Here are some more pictures of some huge bass. Most of these were caught in rivers and lakes in Alabama.
This kid caught this five pound, two ounce monster bass at Chambers County Lake on a family fishing trip. His name is Joshua Dawson from Smith’s Station.
This happy fisherman, Larry Norris, was fishing in a managed pond in Butler County when he hooked this monstrous bass.
This cute angler named Sara Helms caught this ridiculously huge bass in a managed pond as well.
This 8.7 pound largemouth bass was caught by Matthew Applebaum in a private lake.
This pair of monster bass was caught by Walter Blackmon. The “small” bass is five pounds but looks tiny compared to the 9 pound 7 ounce giant bass. He caught the duo in Chambers County Lake, known for producing some whopper bass.
Walter’s big bass would look small compared to this unbelievably big largemouth caught at Escambia County Lake by Kevin Glover. This monster weighted in at 14 lbs and 1.5 ounces. Wow!
This is one of the more bizarre largemouth bass fishing stories you’ll ever here. The largemouth bass in the picture below was caught at Lake Purdy on a stringer without a hook! The five pound six ounce bass swallowed a bluegill that was already on the stringer and couldn’t get loose!
If you’re anything like me you never get tired of looking at pictures of huge bass or any type of huge fish for that matter. That’s one of the things that always gets you to go back out there and keep fishing… the hope that you will one day catch a huge bass like one of these.
This fisherman is going to have a hard time finding room on the wall to mount this ridiculously huge bass.
I honestly don’t even know how this woman can hold up such an enormous bass. This one was caught at Falcon Lake.
Why do I have a feeling that a bass that size would snap my line every time? Or sink my boat? This monster bass was caught at Lake Obeechobee.
The whopper of a bass is fat as can be, and check out those giant googly eyes and mouth!
This is what a record largemouth bass looks like. The bass’ head is bigger than the fisherman’s head!
and here’s the world record for biggest bass! Now that is an epic fishing trip right there, when you catch the world record bass.
More pictures of big bass will be posted soon so check back often.
I don’t know why but this picture of a cute girl bass fishing is my absolute favorite largemouth bass picture I have ever seen in my entire life. For some reason the eye tends to not stay on the fish! I’m going to have to move to Michigan if there are girls like that bass fishing!
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!
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.
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.
Here are some more largemouth bass pictures from our most recent fishing trip. These were all caught with our favorite bass baits, Rapalas and Rooster Tails.
Here’s a whole sink full of largemouth bass.
and here’s a picture of the biggest largemouth bass. This one was as big as the cooler!
I can’t wait to bass fish again next weekend. I’m going to try to top this big one!
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.
