I will send the winner of each type bass listed one of my custom hair jigs. Please give the lake, year and month caught, each basses weight, if known and with your story of the catch. Pictures if you are willing to post them.
Example; northern LMB, 45 1/2 lbs, lake Casitas CA, February 8th 1971. Having a tough day and just started making a run on major points before leaving the lake to try a catch one good bass. Using a smoke Action Worm (ring type worm with curl tail) trailer on a spider jig, caught the 12 1/4, then a 7 1/2, 9, 8 3/4, and 8, just before the patrol boat kicked me off the lake as they where closing.
Florida LMB, 69 lbs, lake Castaic CA, March 3rd 1991. Windy, rainy, cold day, only a few trailers in the parking lot. First stop was Ball point and caught a 9.2, the wind pick up and decided to go up the ski arm around 9 AM, stopped at what I now call the "old folks home". Caught 11.3, 15.1, 13.2, 12 and 17.4, all on BLK/PUR/BRN hair jig with pork trailer, that I will send to the winners. No big limits of spots or smallies, missed the lake Perris run of spots and few smallies over 5 lbs form Canada.

Ps; I'm not eligible, so don't count my limits.

Wow Tom! That was a MASSIVE sack of bigguns! I can only dream of a bag like that! My best 5 lmb bag went over 20 but I cant remember the number. My best for smallies was around 16 if I recall correctly but again, I cant remember the numbers. Tis ok though, I'd rather see a Bassholes member win the jigs than myself :D

California doesn't keep official records for 5 bass limits, I believe this one is up there in the top 5. Just need to be at the right place at the time and stay until the bass stop biting. Most fisherman catch a bass of a life time and run back to the marina to show it off, thats what I did with my first big bass.

I would say my best limit on LMB (Georgia has a Fl/northern mix) would be a day bed fishing from the bank with a black/blue jig. I caught an 8, several over 4, and rounded out with 3 lbers. My best day with spots would be 4 fish, one around 2 lbs, two others 13-14", and big fish at over 5 lbs. All weights approximate. I have yet to catch a smallie- Ive had one on the line, but he got off halfway to the bank.

I best 5 bag limit on smallies was 21 lbs. 3 oz.
I remember that like it happened yesterday because I got beat by 4 ozs. These were all prespawn smallmouth caught dead sticking a watermelon grub smeared with smelly jelly. If you moved it more then 6 inches at a time it was a wasted cast.

My fatest sack came off of a Rick Clunn Trickster spinnerbait during a club tourney. Total weight was 22.08 the three I weighed for the club standings weighed 17.06 anchored by a 6.13 nlmb. I pulled up on a spawning flat in early spring,way to early for the droves of bass fisherman to start hammering the flats. I could practically call my shot. The sow took a swipe at my bait and missed I nearly died when I seen her miss. I shot it right back and she took it good. To say that I went Ike was a gross understatement. I won the tournament by ten pounds. Then went on to lose the angler of the year title for 06.

Looks like there is very little interest in this post. I do not sell my jigs and only have given away a few to close friends over the years, however will send each person (5) who did respond a hair jig if they want one. If you send your mailing address to Jared and Jared emails me his address, I will ship him the jigs along with the needed postage.

You have never caught a 5 bass limit!, we need to work on that. Do you own a spinning outfit, medium/fast that can handle 8 lb mono? I will send you a bag of worms, hooks, weights and the instructions how to use them.
Tom
Ps; Jigs take lots of concentration and heavyier tackle, lets get 5 bass first.

I have a rod and a reel but I don't know how to use them... Well, I know how the rod works... ;D I have tried the spinning reel but I don't feel comfortable with it.

Mary, it doesn't matter if you used it alot, the only way to say you've used it alot is to use it alot. I ain't sure what he will send you, but I have had many, many days salvaged by throwing a 1/8 or 3/16 oz jighead with a green pumpkin finesse worm attached. I have caught more limits by locating the fish with a jerkbait in the morning, than going to the same points I caught the fish at in the morning and spending the rest of the day throwing that shaky head, than I can shake a stick at. Now I'll let Old School give you the good advice. ;)

This is not related to the heaviest 5 bass post, just want you to catch a limit. Need to know what type of lakes you fish and if you are fishing from a boat and what state. If Jared has your address I will send the package to hime for you.

I live by Lake Dardanelle in Arkansas and the lake has everything to fish as far as structure goes. We do NOT have clear water. It is stained to muddy in places.
I don't have a boat so I don't get to fish as much as I want to...
