I was out earlier this week with my cousin and he caught this 23" LMB. According to most charts it would be between 6.5 and 7.5 lbs.  I've fished this lake 3-5 days a week for several years cause I live right across the street. I've had a number of 20+ inch fish in that time but this was the biggest I've seen out of there.

I've personally know a couple people that have caught 5lb bass from pierce, not many but they are there. Wouldn't be surprised to see a 6lb bass come out of there but don't expect to see it very often. As far as 6 lb bass in Illinois, I've caught too many 5-6lb bass from Illinois in my lifetime to count. Usually from private ponds and lakes but have seen some over 6lbs caught in Illinois public lakes as well. Your right to an extent, most people tend to exaggerate bass in Illinois when they get into that 4lb range, but I wouldn't doubt him...

No way 6lbs!!! 

Bet any money it was 3.5 people just don't realize how big a 6pounder is.

I I dont believe anybody that had a "hard" time catching bluegills lol...

Pulled a half dozen gills out Sunday. Had to work pretty hard for them. 

Saw several nice bass, a decent cat, and a monster carp while fishing the north west end. 

Did talk to a southern boy in a kayak who was running a top water spinbait. He had just released a 6 pound bass. 

At least the kayak crowd was polite and a few were chatty and very nice!! (AKA not running between you and where you were fishing).

The concession stand/bait shop is now open.  They do not have minnows yet but I was told they will in the next week or two.

Spent a couple of hours on Wednesday at Rock Cut trying to locate the spring largemouth. Prior excursions have not been very productive - (1) small largemouth in five trips out.

Wednesday was a better day, managed to hook (4) largemouth and land two of them. The largest was 2.5 pounds and the other was 2.1 lbs, the other two were decent size as well before they managed to shake themselves loose from my lure (No photos this trip).

Hopefully this is the beginning of a trend and not an isolated incident.
