Tried Independence Grove for the first time this year. I was finessing a ned rig on the bottom and caught my personal best! 7.5 pounds.

Awesome fish! Did you have a scale on you? or are you guessing the weight?
Nice fish regardless.

Nice catch indeed.

I'm 6'3" and the distance on my body, in approximation to where the fish lines up against you, is 22" (from armpit to under pants pocket). 7.5lbs might be a tad generous on the guestimation scale.

Independence Grove is for certain a place where some big fish can be had. Nicely done.

Welcome!

Unless you bump or weigh the fish it's hard for us to believe. Many of the guys who are questioning you have some serious bass tournament credentials, have participated in countless weigh-ins and so I defer to their judgment. Perhaps you're 6'10" and the bass looks small. Before I had a few events under my belt where I had to weigh my fish all the 5 pounders I thought I had before more likely were lucky to break 4 pounds.

None the less nice fish and hope you continue to post.
