Getting a lot of bites in the chilly waters of February can be tough, but the bites you get will likely come from larger-than-average bass.

Across the country, seven state largemouth records have been taken in February, including the top bucketmouths from Louisiana and Tennessee, plus a fish that tied the state mark in South Carolina.

On Feb. 6, 1993, Mason Cummings used a purple plastic worm to tie the longstanding South Carolina record of 16 pounds, 2 ounces. He caught the fish from an Aiken County farm pond, and trophy chasers should take note of that.
