He foul hooked that fish so I can't see why it should be considered a record. It was also found dead a year later weighing a few pounds less than when he caught her. Nice fish though.

I read the story a couple of years ago in one of my Bass Masters magazines. I think the next world record will come from California.

My wife has a friend that lives on Clear Lake. She's been trying to talk me in to visiting him. Hmm I see a future vacationing spot.

i watched a show on the national geographic channel about that fish, and the guys who caught her. they nicknamed her dottie because of the dot on her 'chin' and of the other pictures the second one is one of the guys who spend all day everyday during spawning season trying to get the world record. they spend all of their time on that one lake.

its crazy what they do to fish it. work graveyard sleep for the hour they had before the park opened and then repeat. those are some very invested fishermen!

Cool stuff dudes dont think I am ready to move to cali .Agree w/tt might be convinced in a vacation sometime .I also believe that the guys catchin those fish have pretty much their entire life revolving round Bass. I still say it can be addictive.
