Nothing like catching a big one.
This guy clearly gets it… I mean, probably more than most but at least he is having a good time. This reaction is how my insides feel when I have the big one.
Largemouth bass is a popular freshwater game fish, known for its large size, aggressive behavior, and hard-hitting strikes.
Largemouth bass can grow up to 24 inches in length and weigh up to 20 pounds, although most fish caught by anglers range from 1-5 pounds. The largest recorded largemouth bass caught in North America was caught in Georgia in 1932 and weighed 22 pounds, 4 ounces.
Largemouth bass are carnivorous and primarily feed on smaller fish, crayfish, frogs, and other aquatic prey. They are opportunistic feeders and will eat whatever is most abundant in their environment. Juvenile largemouth bass feed on plankton and insects before transitioning to a diet of larger prey as they grow.
They are typically caught using artificial lures such as crankbaits, spinnerbaits, and topwater lures, as well as live bait such as minnows, worms, and crayfish.
These beasts are so sought after, there are many tournaments held to see who can catch the heaviest fish out there in addition to pro fishing tours solely focused on catching bass.
These kayak fishermen were out for a day and captured the joys of “the big one” on video.
One of them is reeling in a decent bass, but then his buddy hooks into a monster.
The fish surfaces and he starts to lose his mind.
“It’s a giant. IT’S A GIANT!
The man screams as he reels in and holds up an absolute hog of a largemouth bass.
What a catch, with an even better reaction.
