Default Your best fishes everrrr...

I'm curious to see everyone's most impressive lands from every species of fish they have ever caught. I'm sure the veterans on the board are going to impress me most...but I'll start.

Striped Bass:12lbs. Sheepshead bay, Bunker
Fluke:18" Marine Parkway Bridge, Bunker
Bluefish: 14" Sheepshead bay,Freshwater Rapala
Sea Robin: 19" Sheepshead bay, Freshwater Rapala
Bonita: 8lbs Coney Island Pier, Livelined snapper
White Perch: 3lbs (I tryed to enter this into records but since it was brackish water they didn't accept) Carmans River, Mepps spinner
Sea Bass: 4" SCORE

I've luckily never caught a skate or a dogfish ever. My saltwater experience is limited but I'm starting its certainlyyy way different then freshwater...

Sunfish: 14" Erie Canal, Mealworm
Lake Trout: 9 lbs Cayuga Lake, Rapala
Yellow Perch 2 1/2 lbs. Waneta lake, Mealworm
Carp 42 lbs. Sunken Meadow state park, Snagged him.
Pickeral: 6 lbs. Peconic River, Spinner
Pike: 4 lbs. Lake Champlain, Spinner
Crappie 2 lbs. Waneta Lake, Mealworm
LMB 3 lbs. Cayuga Lake, Banjo minnow
SMB 5 1/2 lbs. Beaverkill, Nightcrawler
Brown Trout 3 lbs. Bubbles falls, Spoon
Shad:4 1/2 lbs. Delaware River, Shad Dart

Now it's your turn. I really want to be impressed. I really want to see what methods get your best catches I'm sure some bizarre stuff has happened to a lot of you guys out there.

Wow, you got a helluva list!

Striped Bass - 35.5 pounds. Merrimack River (live eel. Thanks Roc)...

Bluefish - 13 pounds. Kennebec River, ME
Flounder - Dont fish fer em much, but I have caught em in the 16-18" range off Boars Head.

Largemouth Bass - 4 pounds. Lamprey River, NH. yellow/white Strike King pro buzzbait
Smallmouth Bass - 2.5 pounds. Catchance River, ME (brackish). Custom skirted spinnerbait, yellow/maroon. I lost it in a tree! Damn wind.
Perch - 1.5#. Kellaher Pond. Beverly, MA.

Dont fish for much else :)

EDIT: I lied, I do fish for Trout (Rainbow, Browns, Brook, and Tiger Trout) in the early Spring before the Bass fishing picks up. Gets me out on the water after a long Winter I have caught some very respectable Rainbow Trout over the years, however I never weigh or measure them, I just get em back in the water quick. I have also tried the Sea Run Brown thing once or twice in the Fall here, but they are very hard to fool. I also fish for Catfish/Hornpout on occassion.

Jeez roc, those are some impressive fish. I consider myself a large mouth bass fisherman above all fish I catch and thought I might hold the record on this site for the biggest in MA at 7 pounds 8 oz but you got me beat. I said it before and I'll say it again, "You da Man".

I don't no whether to or .
