Bassmaster Top Spotted Bass

The list below is a work in progress. The catches on the lists are accurate and authentic as far as we have been able to determine. We are aware, however, that other legitimate catches have been made that deserve to be on this list. For that, we want and need your help. If you are aware of a catch that warrants consideration, please submit it to kduke@bassmaster.comor mail your entry to Ken Duke, Senior Editor, B.A.S.S. Publications, 1170 Celebration Boulevard, Celebration, FL 34747.

Be aware that we'll want something more than a claimed weight and a fuzzy photo. Entries should include the exact weight of the bass, the name of the angler and contact information, date of the catch, location of the catch, names and contact information for any witnesses to the catch and weighing of the fish and one or more photos of the catch and angler. B.A.S.S. will give serious consideration to any applicant.
