Several, all used and abused.
For the last five years or so, the biggest bass that's been caught in my pond has been 5 pounds. We catch one pound bass over and over again and sometimes get a 2 pound fish, but that's about it.

After my wife went through Chemo for her colon cancer, she has been very sensitive to the heat, so we don't fish very often in the summer. Temps are much nicer now, so she wants to go fishing again. This was on her second cast!!! 7 1/2 pounds that put on an amazing fight that really tested her. After the pictures, we let her go back in the pond to grow even bigger!!!

Very nice fish, we have some big ones in our pond, but I haven't seen anything that big, congratulations.

Nice fish! It must have put up one heck of a fight.
That must be one of the five pounders which she let go before starting her treatments.

I am envious! The largest bass I've ever caught was about 3.5 pounds.

Very nice! Glad to hear you and momma Walker are injoying this weather. Bend the barbs down on some top waters and have yourselves a ball. We had perch in some ponds not far from you that hit poppers and flies trailing a couple of feet behind Chugger top waters. Try it some time if things are slow.
