I've been fishing the DP since 2020. Probably catch 4-1 Smallies over Largemouth, but love em both! I've topped out at about 17-18 inches for both species, and about 3 lbs. Has anyone been catching any much bigger than that? I'm sure there's always the exception, but in any volume, do bigger bass even exist in this waterway? Maybe I need to fish them different to find the Hogs? Just curious. Thanks!

There are big largemouth throughout the system. I've caught many over 4lbs in Will, Cook, and Lake Co. On the other hand, I think I can count on 1 hand how many smallmouth over 3lbs I've caught.
