Smallmouth Bass State Records

Down below is the official state records of smallmouth bass that have been caught. I guess Tennessee is harvest to the largest smallmouth bass ever caught.

Dam, 11 lbs 15 oz smallmouth bass? Now that’s a big smallmouth! I don’t understand how the angler who caught this smallmouth bass is unknown, a bit strange.


I got these state records from a pretty reliable source, I’ll have to make sure some of these are right. If you guys or gals know that some of these are wrong, comment down below and I’ll be happy to provide a correction.
