Yep, same fish Rick. Some bright spark bought some fingerlings & stocked the dam I fished years ago. They bred in there & get bloody huge. I saw some pics of 20lb bass that came out of there. They are an amazing fish to catch. Big bucket mouth, & they jump like a Barra.

Where I grew up 5-6 lbs was a bloody big largemouth. I can hardly imagine 20 lbs!!

Yep. I didn't know they grew that big. But I saw the pics & had 1st hand accounts from the property owner. Apart from that one I landed I also got dusted by one much bigger. They thrived in that dam. Everything in Africa is bloody big!
