Bullard’s Bar Reservoir produces Spotted Bass specimen over 11 lb.
Within two years five potential all tackle world records were caught in California. On 29 November 2015 Paul Bailey caught the new best mark. He and fellow angler Matt Newman were unable to get a state biologist to officially weigh and certify the record fish. But they document the catch on film and photos, including weighing it on three separate digital scales (11-7, 11-5, 11-4 lb) with witnesses. That’s proof enough for us. We incorporate the species in our record database as it surpasses the weight limit of 11 lb (5 kg). Courtesy of www.fishing-worldrecords.com .
