A few years ago  I put a bounty on the White bass state record. The current record for the state of Ohio White Bass is 4 lbs 21 inches caught July 1 ,1983 by Ira Sizemore in Cincinnati,OH.  I was in contact with Mr. Sizemores son and he had some great stories about his dad, who was an avid fisherman,catching that record bass . Now 4 lbs is a BIG White Bass! But I know that in the spring when a zillion White Bass come up the Maumee to spawn, big, fat and full of eggs, that there has to be one over that 4 lb mark. I have seen some big bass caught in May , there are alot  around the 3lb plus mark this year, but no one ever puts them on a scale. Even last year many anglers forgot to come up to the shop and weigh their fish. We saw a few just over the 3lb mark and a picture of a massive one that was eaten before they remembered the bounty.

Oh well- the hunt continues.




Rooster tails!



Have fun be safe and good luck fishing
