Clay Reed of Scotland County started of the year right when he caught this big bass. He wrote that she smashed a senco worm in watermelon and red-flake rigged with a gamakatsu #2 wide-gap hook.

Kyle Kiziah is known as 'fishingmedic' on the forum and he caught this big bass while fishing in a club tournament. This 6.92-pound Lake Tillery lunker took a crankbait that was fished along a natural rock bank and was the largest fish he caught that day.

Jeremy Revis of Rockingham was fishing with his buddy and was ready when this HOSS DADDY big bass ate his crankbait on just his second cast of the day. The fish went 11-pounds 3-ounces and Revis wrote that it had a big ole pot belly!

Jaime Fajardo of Wake County shares his TOAD from Harris Lake. He caught his big bas in two feet of water on March 4 in 52-degree water, and it weighed 10-pounds 3-ounces.
