Significant Factor(s):

Worked hard at understanding bass and their habitat, by reading and spending time on the water.

The Story:

Right before I was catching some good bass in the 3-5 pound class on jigs and buzzbaits. I flipped the laydown in 3 feet of water at the main lake point, near deep water, and felt it thump. It took only 30 seconds to bring it in and land it. It tried to jump, but the water was still around 60-62 degrees, and it was so fat that it really didnt do much more than break the surface once, and then I muscled it in.

Comments:

This was only one of over 500 TROPHY BASS that I have personally landed in the Northeast since 1998. It was 10.16 pounds, just 4 ounces shy of the Delaware State Record. It was in Bassmaster magazine, The Fisherman, The News Journal, and it currently appears in all of BASS PRO SHOPS MASTER CATALOGS on PAGE 90.
