In clear shallows at Raccoon Lake, Beaver County, two largemouths recently attacked jigs fished off the bottom.

The biggest was 19 1/2 inches, 5 pounds. Benjamin Saks of Garfield released both fish immediately.

Pennsylvania's open season for largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass starts Saturday with a 12-inch minimum and daily combined species limit of six. The season runs through Oct. 31 on lakes, Sept. 30 on rivers and streams.
