For sure Wisconsin state in US is one of the best destination in the world for giant smallmouth.
The proof is what caught angler Ben Royce while fishing fishing with friend and pro-guide and big-fish specialist based in Milwaukee, Eric Haataja.
Ben caught the giant on a 3 inch Berkley Havoc Sick Fish. This big smallmouth was for sure bigger than the 9.1-pound state record for the species. The bass measuring an incredible 24.5 inches in length and sporting a massive 20 inch girth, weighed an estimated 9.6 pounds.
