A 12 and a 17, I believe that is quite possible. I've caught many nice fish in the evenings as they moved from deep to shallow to feed. It not fished out by any stretch. One just needs to learn what they are doing and when.My former neighbor caught a bass over 17 out of there years ago. The fish made bass master magazine. The fishes girth was nearly as long as the fish. He caught a 12 the same say as the 17.
