3.5 lb. Largemouth Bass caught by Tom M Jr. fishing in New Hampshire on 07/10/10
19.0" / 3.5 lb. Largemouth Bass caught by Tom M Jr. fishing on Saturday July 10, 2010 at 00:30 near Belmont in Belknap County, New Hampshire (NH), United States North America using a old faithful popper a Topwater Bait

We went out for some night fishing in a favorite little hot pond. It was almost a new moon with the only light from the stars making it hard to find the weeds. Fished along the edge of them and got a few hits. Next thing you know we hear this huge splash somewhere off the bow, we both thought a monster had just broke water. Then there was a huge splash off the port side closer and it just seemed to large. I shined the flashlight out to the area and there it was..... a beaver that was slapping its tail. He did it a few more times and all the strikes stopped. We moved to a different spot and then slap off the bow area, he followed us. We moved all around the pond determined not to be skunked and he chased us slapping the water with the sound of a boulder getting tossed in, not a single hit was to be had. Well midnight came and we conceded to the beaver and headed in and took the boat out and didn't hear the beaver anymore. Well just like any die hard angler we chucked some topwater plugs in for one last try. Second cast my son got slammed by this lunker.
