Kentucky Anglers Catch Two 14-Pounders in Texas

You might have seen the pictures circulating already of the big bass the duo from Kentucky caught on their trip to Texas the week between Christmas 2022 and New Years Day 2023. Cole Logsdon of Brownsville, Ky. and Dalton Smith of Columbia, Ky. drove to Texas to hunt for double digit bass on the famed O.H. Ivie. And boy were they rewarded for their 15 hour drive.

Not only did they catch a double digit bass, but they caught three largemouth bass weighing more than 10 pounds. And that included catching two bass over 14 pounds that Dalton Smith caught on the same day.

Here is what Dalton Smith had to say about the epic Texas bass fishing trip on his Facebook Page:

“First things first,” Smith said. “I want to thank my Lord and Savior for giving Cole Logsdon and I the opportunity to chase these fish. We had an unbelievable trip to Texas. It feels like a dream, I’m sure it will sink in soon enough!

“Here are some stats:

  • 2 fish over 14 pounds in the same day weighing 14.69 pounds and 14.27 pounds
  • Cole boated an 11.11-pounder the day before
  • Best 5 went 40.67 pounds with 2 fish in the 3-pound range
  • Best 3 fish of the trip went over 40 pounds

“A special thanks to Elm Creek R.V. & Campgrounds for taking care of us through the whole process. They are awesome hosts!”

Here are a bunch of photos from their amazing bass trip to Texas!
