Title: Dobson and Greene retake the Lake St. Clair smallmouth bass limit record
Post by: djkimmel on November 03, 2017, 05:43:41 PM
After 8 years of trying Scott Dobson and Kyle Greene finally broke the magical 30 pounds 5-bass smallmouth limit record for Lake St. Clair retaking the known team bass tournament record for the lake at the same time! Their impressive 30.31 pounds catch won them the Saturday, October 14, 2017 annual Monster Quest tournament.

Scott says they caught their bass on a combination of tubes, swimbaits and blade baits in relatively shallow water. They landed 38 bass that day with 15 of them over 5 pounds. The final limit included two 6 1/2 pounds, one close to 6 pounds and two weighing 5 3/4 pounds.

BassFan posted a nice write up of the accomplishment ( with more details.

As more proof that these are the good ole days of big smallmouth bass fishing another 'record' was set only two weeks later - the known Canadian record again from Simcoe Lake when Matt Belzil and Jason Clay won the Lake Simcoe Open with five smallmouth bass weighing a whopping 31.8 pounds!
