My largest Smallmouth so far is 5.8 pounds, but I don't remember where I caught it. It is somewhat rare to catch one. That is one reason a trophy room in the bait shop would be nice, it could display your largest fish in each species and where and when you caught it.

ive only caught a couple my largest was just over 4lbs yes a trophy room would be nice has a picture of your largest of each species if your looking for smallies look around rocks and were you catch walleye they tend to like the same area sometimes you can get them in sparse weeds try a crankbait or a jig

I've caught a few 4 plus pounders on Kinnni Lake. Quite by accident, as it was during a tournament in the rain. The weather decimated my usual fishing patterns. A medium size orange plastic worm fished in about fifteen feet of water caught their attention. It was the second day of the tourney and I had gone almost fishless the first day. Being able to catch smallmouth as well as largemouth enabled a second place finish. This worked on another lake during an overcast day.

There are some good sized smallmouth in Birch lake. I'm getting an update to the game ready in the next few days that will boost the smallmouth population in several lakes, but especially in Birch. That should help in the hunt for trophy bronzebacks.

Tight lines,

It would be great to see some large schools of bluegills and crappies, instead of the few scattered fish the way it is now. I could see it being a lot of fun getting into a school of them and catching them on the ultra light equipment.

Also, I have caught a 19# largemouth and a 21# pike and lost one larger then that. Without divulging the maximum size, could you tell me if either of those are close to that?

The exact maximum would be hard to cite exactly anyway. The maximum length is clearly defined for each lake and species, but individual fish have varying degrees of fatness. So a 24 incher might be unusually fat and weigh as much as an average 26 or even 27 inch fish. Get a 30 inch bass that's unusually fat and it could definitely break 20 pounds. I'm pretty sure the pike could reach the upper 20s or possibly 30. Maybe in a future update we could use some even more monstrous pike, something approaching the world record. Muskies would be a fun addition for real monsters too. I'd like to see what a 50+ pound muskie would look like in the game, following a 12 inch long topwater lure.

that would be a good idea paul adding some muskie in there also why not lake trout since we need more species then just bass, walleye, pike and panfish
