That is an awesome fish, congrats. Real chunky one and the patterns on its sides are amazing.

She hit twice. I pulled the Nikko Hellgrammite from her the the first time. Went right back and she nailed it. Someone put me onto this location and shared a few pics of the Tallapoosas he caught there. They were comparable in size.

Some have suggested that this is a Tallapoosa X Alabama Bass hybrid and I'm inclined to believe them based on several key characteristics; mainly size and girth of this fish. For now, although I'm certain that this is a hybrid, I will leave it as is under Tallapoosa Bass.
