20.0 in. Largemouth Bass caught by Alex Churney fishing in New Jersey on 06/30/12
20.0" Largemouth Bass caught by Alex Churney fishing on Saturday June 30, 2012 at 14:00 near Medford in Burlington County, New Jersey (NJ), United States North America using a Shad Jointed Floater a Topwater Bait by Rapala International

My buddy and I were out around Birchwood Lake (where he is a resident, and you do need tags) one afternoon. It was in the middle of a heatwave, so we didn't expect to catch much more than bait. I was working my topwater rap real slow, and a sunny hit on it. I started reeling him in when this big bass came and started hitting on the sunfish, so i loosened the drag a lot and let the sunny swim a bit. The bass hit him again, and I was in for a fight (since I was using my ultralight with 6 pound test). I still can't believe how I caught this fish, and that I managed to land him with that weak line. We tossed him back, so if you can get tags for Birchwood try and get him or find his big brother ;-)
