Breaking News: World Record Bass Caught
Could this be it? The new No. 1 for largemouth bass fishermen? Mike Winn is holding a 25.1-pound bass caught on Dixon Lake in southern California Monday by his friend Mac Weakley. By all accounts it smashes the standing record, but questions (as always) loom. Jed Dickerson, a bass fishing legend and friend of Weakley's, weighed the big 'un with a digital scale and then released it. Wildlife officials were not involved in the process. Also, reports that the fish had been foul hooked are circulating. What do you think? Will this bass claim the new title of biggest ever?
Ernie Cowan penned a story for the North County Times on the events yesterday. He's known Jed Dickerson and the other big bass hunters for years. We've got him working on an exclusive for the web, which should be up later today. For now, read his original story.
In the magazine, Bob McNally wrote about where the next record bass might be caught and mentioned Dixon Lake. Read the article, "Finding the Million-Dollar Baby" from our April 2005 issue.
