Anybody hear about state record largemouth shocked up the other day by fisheries crew...? Said to be 16-5.

There is a big deal about the "small" state lake being "unnamed", to protect the lake from pressure??? Not sure I understand that, with license sales being a goal of TWRA. But the report is it is in West Tennessee and has been managed for trophy bass for quite a while.

More details here (courtesy of Larry Rea), and a photo from TWRA:

TWRA hasn't named the lake... I'm sure they don't want it to be overrun. But I have feeling the word will leak out. I've heard some talk about Lake Graham... however that is completely UNCONFIRMED!

My GUESS is Brown's Creek...80 acres. (a dark horse in the race).
But it could just as easily be Graham and/or Gibson.
Graham was the contender for years, then Gibson became THE spot.
Suprised they did't break the record at Gibson when the water was so low for so long...

I think all three have been stocked with Floridas...

Good call taylor!

Rea has now confirmed that the fish came from Brown's Creek Lake, a 167-acre lake located in Henderson County about 10 miles from I-40 in the Natchez Trace State Park.

It is no wake but you can use your motor. Browns can be hard to fish if you dont know the lake. Structure is hard to find but the big fish are there. Hopefully there wont be a dozen boats the next time I go. Its usally peaceful out there.

What's the state record? I thought it was much bigger. We ate a 15.3 last week.

The bass -- if caught by an angler -- would easily break the existing state record of 14 pounds, 8 ounces caught in Sugar Creek in Lawrence County on Oct. 17, 1954. It is the oldest existing state record and ironically the fish "shocked" came within four days of the 55th anniversary of James 'Logue' Barnett's state record.
