      true, but it with location, time, and most certainly a boat can make a double digit bass, kinda hard to do on the bank
    7. Robert Bandy 0
      Excuses excuses...@seaturtles money dosn't catch fish.
    8. Sean Wilms 0
      better have a personal best 2 or 3 times the size of mine
    9. Sean Wilms 0
      how he was holding it, I'm just saying i dont like the picture angle thats all. Besides that dude looks to have at least 30 years over me and a boat and lots ...more of money as well as more time then me, he
    10. Sean Wilms 0
      @Bandy ah but i never said anyone especially him had to agree with my opinion, infact this huge fish has probably made this guy famous and im sure that he doesn't ...more give a crap about anyone's opinion on
    11. Robert Bandy 0
      @seaturtles his fish only was 4-5 of your biggest bass combined haha I'm sure he could care less about your opinion on how he holds it. It's just as impressive ...more held the way he's holding it..
    12. OBX_Fishing 0
      Great catch any way you hold it.
    13. TheBoog 0
      I agree @seaturtles don't really see the point.. A big fish is a big fish
    14. Sean Wilms 0
      and i think it makes it look like its better then it is, but an almost 15lb bass is very huge already
    15. Sean Wilms 0
      @nathantrafford you have a point, i just prefer to hold the fish more inward for better scale for myself to look at for future times, i just dont believe that holding ...more the fish to the camera is better
    16. Brandon Lum 0
      it wasnt 15, it was 14.8 and caught on an ABT suicide glidebait

      That things a beast
    18. nathantrafford 0
      That thing is an absolute monster. Good for him
    19. nathantrafford 0
      Hold up his fish that he's damn proud of so that he can look back at it for years to come.
    20. nathantrafford 0
      @seaturtles I doubt very much that he cared too much about the camera angle after catching that. You think he's going to take a scale picture for all the trolls ...more online? No he's going to smile and

      I think the same thing @seatir
    23. Sean Wilms 0
      very true, never said the fish wasnt a great fish because it is, but i dont see why a 15 pound bass needs to look bigger from a desperate picture angle, once again ...more this is just an opinion of mine
    24. Dblock910 0
      Either way, but a 15 lb bass us a 15 lb bass not matter what angle u look at it from... @seaturtles
    25. Sean Wilms 0
      it be more impressive if he held it against his body for a better scale for how big it is because i dont see the point of sticking an already large fish close to ...more the camera like that, just my 2 cents
    26. Brandon alt 0
      Now that's a big bass....
