    Cedar

    Glad my scepticism was picked up. I caught several over 9 and 8 the last few years in Kentucky and they were a total different shape.

    No disrespect to the guy if you haven't caught 6-7 lb bass before it's hard to judge the size

    LOL, well it's 2018, not the 1700's.... There are PLENTY of scale and fish measurement options on the market that he could have used to get an accurate weight on the fish... Or heck, even a simple length and girth calculation using fishing line if he didn't have a tape in his boat.

    NO EXCUSES.... NONE. He's got a jersey on with "sponsors" all over it (he's not just grandpa with a cane pole and a nightcrawler), I'm assuming he wanted to just generate "buzz" for his Facebook/YouTube accounts/sponsors, I'm not buying that he just "didn't know how to judge the size of the fish"... Not only that, but how do you "judge" and say 10.4lb & 8.9lb, he's that good at judging that he can get down to tenths of a pound increments? A lot of kids online nowadays doing stuff like this to generate buzz/subscribers/etc to try and make a buck off of sponsors/YouTube/etc.

    And I don't know the criteria for submitting a fish for the Lunker Program in the B.A.S.S. magazine, but it appears they just "take your word for it" with a pic and a weight, who knows....

    I'm calling (along with everyone I've shared the pic with) big time BS on these two fish from Cedar... If I caught a 10lb out of Cedar, I'd be contacting the KDFW guys, it's BIG news to catch a 10lb out of Cedar, let alone a 10lb and 9lb in the same day!?!?!?!? Especially since the state built that lake as a "trophy" lake. And like I said, myself and others who fish it regularly can attest that the big fish in Cedar cap out around 6lb-7lb mark and anything over 7lb is a big deal at Cedar, so catching a 10lb and 9lb the same day is completely unheard of.

    Craziness........

    Now that's a legit fish that is pushing 10lbs. You compare that fish to the supposed "10.4" and it dwarfs it, by a lot!! That might be the largest fish I've seen from Cedar. I've seen lots of 7's and 8's but that one is a real one!

    That fish was caught the day of the Boston bombing. I was busting them on a rattle bait that day and I was fishing by myself. I was catching 4 and 5 lbers left and right and I hooked into and lost a monster at the boat and that was it I called him at work and said they're on at cedar and he came straight down about an hour away and not 5 minutes in he caught that fish.
