5.0 lb. Largemouth Bass caught by David Smith fishing in North Carolina on 05/29/16
22.0" / 5.0 lb. Largemouth Bass caught by David Smith fishing on Sunday May 29, 2016 at 12:05 near Raleigh in Wake County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a Sunfish a Baitfish

I saw this fish as a dark shadow near the bank. After several long casts within 10 feet of it and getting no reaction, I started to doubt it was a fish at all. So I got brave and cast about 4 feet away. It immediately oriented towards the live bait and charged in for the kill. It gave a good fight, pulling line against the drag, but it ran out of energy in about a minute, and that was that.
