Got out this afternoon for a few hours to target bass for the first time this year. Tried cranks, senkos, and mr. twisters. Was able to produce one nice 17" bass (I think it was a spotted bass). Caught loads of small Harvey Gap style perch and a few bluegill. All in all not a bad day out, but we still need some steady temperatures to turn the fish on.

/\/\X3/\/\ And a 17" spot would be close to a state record (4lbs 7oz. 17.75")!
I think it is just a crummy pic. I was thinking it was a spot because the upper jaw didn't come past the eye and the dorsal fin was completely connected. Maybe just a funky largemouth.

A 17" almost four and a half pound spot is pretty chunky. Lots of 17" spots don't weigh three.

I like spots, but them damn plomos got the lock. Plebs... what a dump.

Yeah I'm starting to think alot of Colorado's "state records" are not real! The one that gets me the most is yellow perch! I have seen alot of BIG perch but I have never seen a 2lbs 9oz. perch the was only 13.63" long. I have caught REALLY fat perch just under 15" in early spring full of eggs that barely weighed over 2lbs.

Something smells fishy around here!

Since we have Northern strain Largies here, the jaw line is misleading. It is not as pronounced as a FL strain, and easily confused. What you have is a Northern strain Largie.

Pretty good day of fishing in February.
