RE: Tied Record - Largemouth
We've been over this before. From the last record-breaking largemouth thread:
"Until Perry's record is broken east of California, where the fish aren't force-fed stocked trout, it will be the record to me. I've fished Castaic and some of those other Cali reservoirs and its total BS. Its a tiny lake and they put truckloads of 10 inch rainbows in the lakes for largemouths to gorge themsleves on. Its no different than if you had your own pond and hand-fed the catfish whole chickens every day. That is what they do with those lakes in Japan, as well. Bogus record.
""The Department of Fish and Game stock both the upper and the lower lakes (Castaic) with Rainbow Trout from October through March with an estimated combined total of 40,000 pounds per season.""
They are food. Nobody fishes that lake for trout."
