She’s out there, you know. Miss Bertha — the state-record largemouth and right now she’s probably poking around the drop-offs at Briery Creek Lake near Farmville, looking for a good place to nest. In the meantime, she’s hungry, and if you’re a sluggish bluegill or crappie, be on guard or you’ll get eaten.

The current state-record largemouth in Virginia was landed way back in 1985. The 16-pound, 4-ounce bass came out of Lake Conner in Halifax County. Many have predicted that the next state record may well come from Briery Creek Lake, where several bass over 16 pounds, but short of 16-4, have been landed.
