The Story:

We had been fishing for a few hours and it had been very slow. All of a sudden the tide changed and both Butch and I had fish ON! Butch landed his fish first as I waged the battle with a pretty good size bass. She jumped out of the water and I couldn't believe how big she was. Butch is still busy with his fish so I bring her to the boat, lip her and say oh my (heck) and put her on the scales. I tell Butch she is over 13 pounds he says (Oh My Heck,) not actually verbatim. Butch says "why didn't you tell me she was that big?" Heck, her girth was 20.75 inches! So, we put her in the livewell and headed back for camp. We came in with me jumping up and down, (I always get very excited) put her in our special tank (for taking care of big fish) and I call David Cambell. This fish was then turned over to David and the ShareLunker program and it was my second entry ever which was a first for the State Of Texas, to have a women enter more than one ShareLunker.

Comments:

She is healthy in the Heart of the Hills and seems to be happy as a ShareLunker fish. Her babies are doing good where many of them will be put back in Lake O.H. Ivie. I want to thank The State Of Texas for our ShareLunker program and what it does for our sport. Butch and I are honored to be a part of the Hall Of Fame at WorldRecordBass and you can visit our information at: http://www.worldrecordbassfishing.com/hof.asp?ID=9 We also have a photo gallery up at: http://www.worldrecordbassfishing.com/gallery.asp?Gallery=10
