October 15, 2010 - Private Pond - I caught this largemouth bass in July 2010. We weren't sure if this would be a state record or not, but he was HUGE. I almost broke my pole trying to reel him in. I caught him using fake bait, at the pond at my friend's house. We named him Fishosaurusrex because of how big he is. We estimate he was at least 12lbs.

September 8, 2009 - Lake near Burden - Here is a picture of a 22" 6lb large mouth that I caught on a lake near Burden Ks. The fish was caught by Dave Bean while fishing with his uncle Eldon Schniepp and son Julian Bean. This fish was caught in the morning on a 4" tube bait. They always look like the weigh more than they do. We released the fish to be caught another day. We also caught another 20" bass that was skinny and only weighed 4 lbs.

June 8, 2009 - Wilson County Pond - June 1 My buddy and I put on a Wilson County pond about 2 hours before sunset. The wind was about 15-20 mph. My buddy was running the trolling motor and it kept him pretty busy since I forgot the rudder to stabilize the back of the boat. In spite of that he put me on this real nice bass that hit a Tiki Wave worm right on the edge of a drop about 8 foot from the bank. What a brute! very strong fish! As always the fish was released to fight another day!

November 20, 2008 - Lake north of Denver - Caught this bass a little lake just north of Denver , a town called Thornton . The weather was 29 at night and 72 mid day. The past week or so I have been catching one or two big fish on spinner baits or rattle traps. Normally the lakes are frozen over this late in the year. Have been taking advantage of this as well have the bass. Thanks for letting me share my story with you all.

August 27, 2008 - Farm Pond Fishing - I know farm pond reports don't help others catch fish at the same body of water, but I will talk more about the day then anything. It was right when we got the cool front in and the weather was pristine. The clouds all around. I had the day off and decided to hit up my farm pond that isn't too far away. I pond was completely calm so I knew I had to keep a calm approach while wading. I played around with some spinnerbaits and stick baits and was catching some small bass and then I moved to the main like and went to a black jitterbug. It's definately a big bass bait and small bass tend to smack it as well. Here are the two fish I caught that are worth showing off. Topping over five pounds and one hitting 5.5lbs. The biggest wasn't too far from shore and the other was more to the middle of the lake. Finally caught some nice fish.


July 23, 2008 - Farm Pond west of Hutchinson - This 5# Largemouth Bass was caught by my son, Connor Ogburn. Connor caught this Bass at a farm pond west of Hutchinson , Ks, on 07192008, which happened to be the day of his 7th birthday party. Connor caught this fish using a 3'' mister twister. We both caught numerous Bass in the 2-3 pound range, but the one pictured was the biggest of the day.

April 21, 2008 - Southeast Kansas Private Lake - She caught this giant largemouth on Saturday 4/19. It was caught on a small private lake in southeast Kansas. She was using spinning tackle and a red and white Chatterbait. We didn't have scales with us so we're not exactly sure on the weight. I would guess somewhere between 8-10 pounds. She measured 24" long and 18" around. Just wanted to show everyone you don't have to go to Texas to catch a lunker!

May 15, 2006 - Kansas Bass Pix - Dan Nelson, 11lb,7oz and 9lb,10oz. bass caught on March 13th 2006



May 2, 2006 - Big Hill - A 19" small mouth bass from the banks of Big Hill Lake, last Thursday (4-25-06) near dusk. Caught by Stacy Reeves using a Storm 4" chartreuse "Wildeye" minnow. Except for a few crappie, this fellow was all that was caught for an after work run to the lake that evening. Of course there was also one that got away.... and he was "this big!"

May 7, 2006 - Anthony area private pond - On April 20th this year my oldest boy (Tanner, 8 years old) and I were doing some after work fishing on a private pond here in Anthony, KS and were just about done for the evening. We were on our way back towards the vehicle and casting in as we were leaving. He was using a 4" long plastic lizard for a lure and cast in one last time. I saw his pole bend and a big ball of moss, so I just assumed he was stuck on it. I had told him to get it unhooked, until I saw all the splashing. I knew he'd caught something other than debris. I cranked in my poll, ran to him, but let him reel it in all by himself. Here's the picture of the proud angler with his catch weighing in at 6 pounds. I was very proud of him, and we've frozen the fish and plan on having it mounted for him.

February 28, 2006 - Kingman County - Beautiful weather again. Pablo and I went to Kingman Lake for some early season bassin.
Water still a little cool but it will warm up quickly if this weather holds. Caught a total of 3 bass on a 5/16 ounce blue and black jig&pig. We had to work for them but sure was fun. Tried spinnerbaits, plastic lizards, worms, crawdad cranks but they wouldn't hit them. Jig & pig is hard to beat in these cool water conditions. Looking forward to getting out again.

December 23, 2005 - Lake Fork - Submitted by Lake Fork Guide Trips - Best wishes to all in the coming New Year and may the blessings of good health, prosperity, and big bass be visited upon you in 2006. Photo is of Ann holding a 7 lb red Rat-L-Trap bass. I'm attaching a pic of Kevin with a 6 lb'er from Fork. I figure 1/2 of your Kansas visitors will like and 1/2 may not. ;)

October 26, 2005 - Sedgwick County Park - Oct 26, 2005 Caught very nice Wipers 7 to 8 pounds at Sedgewick County Park and approximately 50 largemouth bass. Very good fishing day

August 22, 2005 - Uncle Courtney Gammon and I went fishing at Lakepoint at Big Daddy Pond one day and I, Christopher Castrisos, was fishing with a plastic minnow lure and I caught a huge bass.  In the water, there are chemicals, so clean fish properly.

August 6-7, 2005 Falcon - Submitted by Larry Bridgeman - Tournament Report - McAllen Bass Anglers: Twenty of McAllen's finest fishermen brought their rigs and reels to Falcon State Park last weekend to contest their August Tournament. The big bass of 7 lbs 6 Oz was caught by Abel Garcia (left photo) who had 2nd heavy stringer of 17 lbs 12 oz for the two-day event. The heavy stringer was caught by Eddie Kucia (right photo with a 5-10) weighing 18.01 Oz. The conservation-
minded club had reduced this to a three-fish daily limit tournament in consideration of the hot weather. Altogether, 20 fishermen caught 88 bass weighing 219 lbs 13 Oz. There were 6 fish caught over 5 lbs and eight patch fish (over 4 lbs) weighed-in by Anglers.

July 19, 2005 - Vic's Lake Wichita - Here's a couple more photo's of recent 'catches' by Gary Neal from Vic's Lake, Sedgwick County Park, he asked me to send for posting in the Bragging Corner.


June 8, 2005 - Southeast Kansas farm ponds and watershed - June 3-5 - We had three different storm fronts and all the rain to deal with which made the ponds dingy but still caught some nice bass. Not much good top water action. Plastic worms and lizards texas-rigged accounted for most of the bass, in particular the 4" pumpkin and chartruese Yum-dinger which caught this bass. A larger bass was hooked on a black / red tandem willowleaf spinnerbait but came off the hook as I was trying to lip him at the bank. So my son will never let me forget this! He will have to get his own Yum-dingers from now on.

December 21, 2004 - Lake Falcon Texas - Submitted by Larry Bridgeman - Just when you thought it was safe to take your Brush Hogs back on the water, Charlie Ormand and his Camo Brush Hogs were viciously attack by a 11lb 2 oz bass today in the Marker 8 area of the lake on the U.S. side. It wasn't pretty but when the fight was over, Charlie had the best of the deal and, proving he was a great sportsman, released the fish in the Veleno to fight another day. Barbara snapped this pictures showing again the benefit of the great training I have provided.

December 4 & 5, 2004 - Falcon - Submitted by Larry Bridgeman - (Photo is Jerry Ramos 14.28 lb bass 12/04/04 by Falcon Lake Tackle) Saturday started just like most winter days in Zapata, but this was not going to be remembered as a normal winter day. Not for San Antonio's SWRI Bass Busters that had their 2004 7.74 lb club record bass caught here week before last, or for Jerry Campos who shattered that record with a 14.28 lb fish from Falcon. The heavy stringer also claimed by Jerry was 29.02 lbs. Nineteen fishermen and ladies weighed 15 limits including second and on weights of 20.76 lbs, 19.76 lbs and 19.58 lbs.

Thought you'd enjoy---cheryl & Larry











Mar. 23, 2001 hi jim--

Here are photos of our best from last season. Both were taken from our favorite little lake. Larry's fish ate a jig and twintail combo, while mine ate a small black/blue spinnerbait with a little neon green piece of worm as a trailer. Larry's fish was a little over 4 lbs and mine weighed in at a hair over 5 lbs.

We want to do this again soon.

C. Riley & Larry Ranich







Jan. 7, 2001 I'm not sure how much this one weighed, I'd guess around 5 pounds. I caught it in a pond near my house north of Lawrence. It was loaded with many fish this size, but this one was the only one I kept. Mike
