4 lbs. 12 oz, splitshotting a plastic crawdad. The funny thing was that it didn't fight all that well...kinda skinny, too. Maybe tired out post-spawn, or sickly, I suppose. I've also caught a 4 lb. 9 oz and a 4 lb 8 oz that ran me around the boat like crazy. Tube and Senko, respectively. C&R, Steve

5lb 9oz - 22in. Caught from my kayak on Mar 3, 2009. This girl is on the wall of my den since I'd decided I would get the first Smallie I caught over 5 pounds mounted. She's still my only one over 5.

6.25# in a club tourney on a Carolina rigged Kalin's grub. Weighed & released back into Hagg Lake. I got one on a Bill Norman's Crankbait up at the Dalles that was right at 23" long, but I didn't weigh her.

Here is my wife's best, caught at Prineville Res. last August on an Yamamoto twintail grub in 16' of water. Didnt measure or weigh, guessing low 4's...a real solid fish.

19" on the Columbia, but my mother caught a 23" fish with a 15 1/2" girth in the early 80's on the big river. That is the biggest smallie I've seen caught in my area. We estimated that fish weighed nearly 7 pounds.

Hair over 6lbs, early March on the Umpqua four of five years ago.... caught on a Lucky Craft crankbait



On my own boat I have never caught a smallie over 5lbs. I am the master at catching 4lbs 15oz fish, or my scale hates me, haha.

My biggest smallmouth came from Willow creek Reservoir. It was 21 1/2 inches. Have pic somewhere but so far have not found it. Caught it in 2000 or 2001 not sure. did not weigh her though, (no scale). It was caught on a #7 rapala floating minnow imitation on a rip type retrieve. Have pic of second biggest smallie from Hagg lake that came in at 4.5 lbs. in summer of 2008. Caught it on a yum dinger 4" green pumpkin.

This one was just over 4lbs. I have caught bigger but no pics, so it didn't happen




This was a summer fish that was just under 4lbs near the Ice Harbor Dam.

If it is from Oregon it would be a state record. You better bring some good picks Not doubting, just saying!

If that one just over 9 pounds was caught from Oregon water then it is around a pound over the current state record of 8 lb 1.76 oz from Hagg in 2005. That would make you the unofficial Bob Beamon of Oregon bass fishing lore.

Is your scale rated for only 5 pounds?? You might want a larger scale say up to 25#.....

Boy, I have some work to do. My biggest was probably about 2 pounds on the Umpqua below Myrtle Creek.
You guys have reeled in some huge smallies. Congratulations!



By the way, I was surprised to hear from a bass circuit angler that he likes Washington's Lake Chelan for big smallmouth.

I would call b.s. on that 21 1/2 fish being 9 lbs. 22 inch fish usually run about 5 lbs for me. It is a very FAT fish though..........could be!
