I love to see big bass. And it’s interesting to see what weights hold the records in each state and how diverse the bass are in various states. The photos we were able to dig up on more than 2/3 of the states were pretty eye opening and interesting. It would be very cool to see the back story on some of these older catches and what tricked the state’s record fish into biting. Interesting to see folks from all different walks of life representing state records in largemouth bass fishing around the country. We’ve included links to the stories of the catches where we could as well as their place in the state record book. If you see a state we’re missing and know where we can find the picture of that state record, let us know.
The Alabama state record largemouth bass was caught in 1987 by Thomas Burgin from Mountain View Lake just south of Leeds, Alabama and weighed 16 pounds, 8 ounces.
