Hey all you Bass-aholics check out this BIG MOMMA I caught at a private pond just outside Corvallis a bit...didn't think I could find any BIG GIRLS in Oregon but I was wrong.

I'm new to the site but love to fish and am looking forward to interacting with all you other fish-finding-fiends!

Johnny Southpaw;
First things first. Welcome to the best darn fishing forum with the very best members you could hope to find. Check around in all the other forum sections and find what interests you. We all share all sorts of information and invite you to chip in whatever you like. That is an impressive lady,no matter where she is from! It's a good thing you found her in a private pond or she might not be around long. Did you release her? I hear they aren't so great tasting, I could be wrong. Again, welcome. Be safe.

good morning bass master...that big momma I caught was actually from last year, pre-spawn. as far as the location of the pond...if I tell you I'll have to...no, it's a private pond located out off of Independence Rd., an old farm pond I believe. My friend has permission to fish it and he's taken me a few times (he blindfolded me so I'm not sure exactly where on independence rd...). I'm hoping to get permission myself this year...

Good morning rain catcher. Yeah I released her. She was a pre-spawn from last spring. I don't eat bass generally, and you are correct about the big ones not tasting so great. Plus, that girl has some great genetics to pass on so our kids can catch the big ones too...johnny southpaw

good morning riverfisher...I caught her from the bank, although the bank fishing at that pond is only good for a few weeks before the algae ruins things, then you need a little boat...

If you know of this pond DON"T TELL ANYONE IT"S LOCATION!!! J/K. Yeah, nice little pond off independence rd. I haven't hooked into a bass yet this season, still sick with steelhead fever, but soon those bucket-mouths will be calling...

Nice Bass! That looks like a bass out of Florida. I wonder what it weighed. The state record is 12 pounds and that is at least 10. But I think they recently excluded private ponds from the record books (I might be wrong).

I guessed she weighted between 8-10 lbs. but hard to say for sure. My biggest bucketmouth by several pounds. I've lived in New Mexico, Ohio, Kentucky and Alabama, and Oregon. If you were to rate each of those states insofar as which one could/would produce the biggest bass, where would you put Oregon?
