Another fishy story!!

Here it is, my trophy Kentucky bass . It was several years ago when I caught it.
Back in the day when I fished almost everyday of the year, not just those pretty days. I mean sometimes i fished when it was snowing and really cold.

From this point of view it looks downright scarey. Could you imagine being inhaled into that mouth? This is the last picture a bait fish ever sees. It's rightout frightening.
This bass is the Kentucky state fish. It has a large appetite but does not get as large or heavy as the American Black bass. Just looking at them together you could barely tell them apart. After some study you would learn their differences, but the easiest is the Ky bass has a "tooth" patch on the tongue.
Ky has a Ky. trophy fish program and it is a great program. Bass are not the only fish in the trophy program, you would be surprised at the many different types and species of fish in this program.
Many fishermen participate in it each year. No, it is not run through tournaments and there are no entry fees. Each participant can fish anytime they chose at their leasure. When you catch a trohy fish just go through the certification process and submit. It's simple.
It's a great fishing program for the entire family. Here is the link for fish Species and categories: eligibility list.
It's simple, it's easy so check it out and enjoy. Pass the word about the program.


  1. That would be a fun program to participate in. I wonder if there might be a bass that's 23 inches long in your pond?

  2. wow that's a scary look for a little bait.I'm glad you used artificial.
