According to North Carolina’s Wildlife Resources Commission, a Largemouth Bass of either 8 lbs or 24″ qualifies as a trophy catch. We agree, and the 24″ limit is the gold standard for trophy bass in kayak fishing. By our count, 4 such fish have been landed during CKA competition over the years, and the photos below commemorate those fish. All fish were photographed and released alive.
