I am getting this info from a friend that is up there. He swears it is legit.

I figured it would be coming soon with the Gobies invasion offering a great food source.  2nd largest ever recorded.

I saw this online just last night. Being a smallmouth fanatic this is the fish of dreams.

I agree the gobies are helping. Reports of bigger and bigger smallies have been coming out of the great lakes for some years now.

I sure hope the trend continues upward!

Im guessing this is flirting with the state record within a pound or 2.

Skip to 14:25 to see the fish landed. Rest is pretty cool too

it's only a matter of time, the gobies aren't going anywhere. With their introduction NYs record has been steadily going up. Nice fish, congrats!!!

This is a Canadian record as it was caught up by Pelee Island which is Canadian Waters.

If the smallmouth bass in the Erie Canal start to eat gobies it would be as good as the st lawrence
