My cousin (TNLynn) and I had a decent day yesterday considering that we got a late start. The fishing has slowed down some, but we still ended up with 7 KYs. We did lose two big smallmouth at the boat and another that we didn't see. I did catch the biggest KY that I have ever caught. It weighed 4 lb 5 oz.



Here is another pic from a smallmouth a couple of weeks ago. It didn't have as much coloration to it as normal. We had been catching a bunch like him, but they slowed down a little for us this weekend.

There have been a few 4 lbers show up in tournaments in the past month or so. A buddy of mine had right at 21 lbs a few weeks ago and two of the five were KYs. The biggest was 4.24. There was another sack a week or so ago that had four KYs and one LM that weighed right at 19. He had three KYs that were right at 4 lbs. I have caught a bunch of three pluses to pushing four but the first one that has officially broken 4.

Yeah. He had nearly 21 lbs a couple weeks ago with three SM and two KYs. He is on a roll. He won the BFL at Guntersville on Saturday with 29 lbs. He had two over 7 lbs.

That is about right. He was so fat that he could barely move and looked uncomfortable. He attempted to jump but couldn't get out of the water. I caught him on an ultralight spinning reel, but he still didn't put up too hard of a fight due to him not really being able to move.

Most of them do. A 2.5 to 3 lber would out fight this one any day. All of them are fat, but this one was just unreal fat. I wished I would have taken a picture of the bottom of its belly. I could barely get my hand around the girth. It looked uncomfortable and think this is why it didn't put up a super fight. It looked like it hurt it to wiggle. \:\) It was only a little over 18" long.
