My mom is killin it on the bass this week. Earlier in the week she caught the one on the left. Best guess was between 5 1/2 lbs and 6. She put it on the stringer (the metal clip kind) and fished down the bank a little, came back and the clip failed and the fish was gone. She was beside herself, it was her biggest bass ever, she had only caught up to 3 pounders before. It was probably going to be mounted. Then we went today (Sat 5-30) and she managed this beast on the right. Weighed in at 6lbs 10oz. She beat out my personal record with that 10oz. My biggest is 6 even. She has been on cloud nine since, and is for sure having it mounted. Taught her how to use weightless senkos and this has been the result, I dont think she is ever gonna go fishing again without having one tied on, haha.

If I mounted every 5-7 pound bass I've caught in this State my house would be out of wall space. Tell her great job but hold out for a 9+, or get replicas made, they're way cheaper, last longer and allow more of the sub 7's to reach true trophy size! Beautiful fish btw  :tup:

If you wouldn't mind, pass along the info of who you end up using for the skin mount and how you liked their work.  :tup:

The one second third from right I bet played you well, it looks a little spent!
BTQ what lure are you using for a catch like that  :dunno:

A 6+ largie is a Washington tub. Most casual fishers will never encounter one.

True statement.  :tup:

Just an expensive process. I've always wanted to mount something over 7lbs cause most of the time the pics don't do them justice (even though I've seen 4's look like 8's in some pics lol :dunno:). I just can't justify the cost of a skin mount and the process is a pain! A good fiberglass replica is still gonna run over $250! That's money I could spend on more gear, gas or boat upgrades...tough decision  :chuckle:

No issue with anyone mounting or eating bass BTW....hope it didn't come across that way! :tup: :tup:

Yea. Personally, Mounts for me after my first couple big fish are a matter of when I best my own personal record. Mine is 6 even, however it was a super thin fish. I could fit my fist in its mouth with plenty of room to spare all the way around. The head was just massive. My guess is if it haddnt been so unhealthily thin then it would have probably hit 8lbs. Length was like 26 or so. This year is the first time I broke 4.5 lbs in almost 10 years, and that was just today with this 5.25 lbs fatty. I used to turn loose a lot of bass. Just keep a couple here and there to fry up (granted I used to catch a lot more too haha). However, now in my married life, if my wife found out that I turned loose any bass that I could legally bring home..... lets just say the fish would be the only thing mounted in the house for a while. One of the first things I ever cooked for her was breaded pan fried largemouth, I still am convinced thats all she keeps me around for  ;)  :chuckle:
Anywho. here is the chubby one I got today (6-2-20). Only bite for the day, went to fish the frog on some mats but water level rose since last week and the mats now are not mats, haha. So had to work the senko for this bite. Had 3 finglerling size catfish in its belly.
