Coeur d' Alene Lake produces monster smallmouth

Congratulations to Matt Gamble of St. Maries for landing and releasing this 21-inch beauty on August 5, 2017! Matt's fish had the 1/2-inch needed to break the previous record. This bass brings the catch/release smallmouth title to northern Idaho after southern Idaho held the previous 3 smallmouth records.

Catch-and-release records just started in 2016 and there's still room in the record books. Check out the Record Fish Page to see the current list and how to participate.
