16.0 in. Smallmouth Bass caught by Henry V fishing in North Carolina on 08/08/15
16.0" Smallmouth Bass caught by Henry V fishing on Saturday August 08, 2015 at 14:35 near Morganton in Burke County, North Carolina (NC), United States North America using a lure by Rebel

I fished the CKA tournament series yesterday on scenic Lake James. Long story short: I lost 4 fish, two at the boat, one off the ruler. A tiger musky swam under my kayak, and only 10 anglers caught a limit. 1 single fish got me 17th place. A tough day.

This fish almost made it worth it. Sitting in my kayak, I watched it jump twice after it was hooked, and both jumps were high than my head. My guess is the fish cleared the water surface by nearly 3.5 feet on each leap. The smallie had more fight in it than any 16" fish I ever caught, an amazing, beautiful fish.
