A 16 inch smallie is something to be VERY proud of!! Biggest smallie I ever caught was about 18 inches on a small creek in Ohio. Caught it on a Rebel Pop-R. What a thrill it was to see that bronzeback nail that topwater!!! And ohhhh what a fight! Pound for pound a smallie is a much better fighter than their big-mouthed cousins. Keep on fishin' Mr. Bassier!!!

My biggest smallie is 19 5/8", weighing 4 lb 8 oz, caught in the Columbia off McGuire Island in '04. She would have been heavier but she was missing one eye. :lol: I'm still trying to break the 20" barrier.

UPDATE" 4/30/09
New PB - 23 1/2", 15" girth, 6 lb 10 oz caught on the John Day River fishing a white spinnerbait.

My biggest is only 15 inches. I caught it using a small rubber worm in the Umpqua R. I plan on doing a lot more smallmouth fishing this summer. A guy I work with informed me of a spot near Albany that is full of them.

Oh really..... I volunteer to check it out for you;)

Nope. Can't give it up until I give it a try. I guess most of it's on private property and the biggest fish are about 15 inches. I'll let you know in a PM. but I'm not posting for all to see.

Yes, the record smallmouth was caught at Hagg: 8 lb, 1.76 oz. It was caught in 2005. Not sure what it was caught on.
