Default Record Largemouth in San Diego...

Looks like these guys were not ready for this...but they did the right thing after foul hooking a bass that would not have made IGFA standards...

Imagine the fishing pressure this lake will see!
So what will you do if you top 78 pound 8oz striper?

I fished it a few years back and the lake was small then . The bass eat trout up there and get huge . Hopefully she won't die from getting dragged around by a stringer .

Thumbs down Re: Record Largemouth in San Diego...

That bass looks like it has about 5 pounds of eggs in its belly.
Clearly, since they foul hooked the fish it does not qualify as an IGFA record and those guys knew it. That's why they released it.

That bass is soo fat it's going to explode...

Literally look at her eyes!

I'd be afraid to "lip" and lift her like in the pics I'm seeing. Hopefully it didn't harm the fish. Reminds me of the scene in "The Great Outdoors" when Dan Aykrod's twins are asked to swim, and in the background a giant musky is eating someone... ok, at least that's how I remember it.

You guys are overlooking an obvious explaination.

The fish was caught in California. From the picture it has clearly had augmentation surgery.

I would hardly consider them sportsman let alone fisherman for foul hooking a bedding bass of even 7 lbs never mind the near 25 lbs. I say near because when I saw the video that scale spent basically all it's time in the 24 range and peaked into 25 for barely a second. I know it's tempting but I stopped fishing for bedding bass when I was still in my teens. Fishing and catching a bedding bass that is hungry and out for a meal is one thing but intentionally targeting large bedding bass and foul hooking them off a bed is another. I seriously doubt that it was foul hooked by accident. I admit I'm a trophy hunter like most but I beleive in doing it right.

Well, if it did spawn then I doubt if it's over 25 lb.s anymore.

This was featured on ESPN today. IGFA would have reognized a foul-hooked fish, however, local, state rules supercede IGFA, per IGFA. Foul hooking is not permitted in CA, so IGFA record is not possible, in this case.

I really do not consider it sporting to target nesting fish. Their backs are up against the wall, so to speak. They must defend themselves against attacks and intruders. That's why PA has a closed season for lakes and ponds.
