Likely New Montana Smallmouth Record Has Just Been Caught

Just look at the side by side of this pending Montana smallmouth record. 

There are big fish then are really big fish like the recent pending Montana smallmouth record that has just been caught. Mike Dominick was fishing Fort Peck Reservoir when the big fish hit. Luckily, there was a tournament going on at the same time when he landed his fish so finding certified scales was fairly easy.

Regardless, Dominick's fish weighed in a 7.51 pounds. The previous record weighed in at 7.4 pounds. Now that's winning by a nose.

Just check out this video that Dominick shared to Facebook page. You can see just how big this monster Montana smallmouth record bass really is.

To see this in another angle, Dominick also shared a side-by-side comparison of his 7.51 smallie directly next to a 3.5 pound smallie. Now, don't get us a wrong, a 3.5 pound smallie is a borderline trophy about anywhere these fish swim, but next to that fish, it looks like a baby.

Yep. Now that's a fish!
