Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Thumbs up Potential Florida State Record Bass Caught and released in 2015

"Dave Ochs will likely be the hot topic in Florida bass fishing communities this week. Pictures and reports surfaced this week of what is being said to be a 19-pound bass that Ochs caught on a Yamamoto Senko on Lake Kissimmee Thursday, July 23, 2015. Ochs weighed the fish on an uncertified scale and the bass weighed 19.2 pounds on his scale. It was 27 inches long with a girth of 24 inches. Ochs could not fit the bass in his livewell so he snapped a picture and released it back into the lake."

From 2015 but I just caught this article. If Mr. Ochs had kept the big girl he would have gotten an immediate check for $10,000. Now plus endorsements for any equipment used including the boat company, motor, etc. $$$
Knowing she would die from being in the live well he released her. Mr. Ochs is the sportsman's sportsman.
I spent bucks on my boat gear etc. then when the fish look at me I let em go and go to the store and buy fish. Fish is supposed to be brain food.

Ochs did the right thing to let it go. That is a trophy fish and they got a picture of it, that is their trophy and proof of catch.
