    I CAUGHT A HUGE LARGEMOUTH BASS ON A LIVE HERRING WHILE STRIPED BASS FISHING AND I THINK IT MIGHT OF BEEN A STATE RECORD BUT I COULDNT DO ANYTHING BECAUSE IT WASNT BASS SEASON YET AND I WAS WONDERING IF IT WOULD COUNT AS A STATE RECORD IF I SUMMITED IT OUT OF SEASON.

    I think you would be out of luck because you are required to release any fish that are not legally caught. It wouldn't matter whether you were trying to catch another species, or just fishing out of season.

      You couldn't submit it because you wouldn't be able to keep it. Maybe you'll hook em again when they're in season.

        That would likely result in a fine from the state wildlife agency and a visit to the local magistrate, and a lot of publicity for doing something illegal which is a bad mark for all sportsmen. It wouldn't be recognized anyway. That bass should be bigger next time you catch her.

          i figured that would be the case. i released the fish weighing a little over 10 pounds. later in the season when it turned bass season my brother ended up caughting her on a white grub we weighted her and she tipped the scales just under 11 pounds. this year where going to try caught her when bass season opens up by now she should be over 11 pounds and a state record for sure
