It was on a private freeway pond (about 8 acres). Had a huge food source of bluegills for them footballs to chow down on. I have a 2 man plastic boat with a trolling motor on the front. It was caught using a 6" culprit plastic worm fished sloooooow. We (my fishing buddy and I) used 6# because the bass were getting a little too smart. Virtually no snags in the lake, so once the fish was on, you had all the time in the world to work'em. French made Mitchell 300 and tons of back reeling were involved. Oh, no net. That thing had to be lipped into the boat. No lie - the VERY NEXT CAST I made after that fish was a 6# bass.
