Both Tim and I have a passion for trophy bass but there is a huge difference between catching big bass and breaking records. On January 12th, 2015 Tim had the honor of breaking the Calfornia State Record for Spotted Bass. His monster bass tipped the scales at 10 pounds 6 ounces and is the number 2 spotted bass of all time!
Over the past few weeks there has been an amazing buzz across the internet about this fish. No one had ever seen a spotted bass like this. Her dimensions are an amazing 24.25" long x 20" girth! We put together a brief documentary of the experience including the RELEASE of such an important bass.
While some anglers would argue that a bass of this size should be killed in the name of science, we just couldn't do it. She's still out there, she's still swimming, and maybe one day we will meet again. This sport is all about setting goals and pursuing our dreams until they become a reality. For Tim, his goal of a true world-class spot has become a reality and he had the blessing of watching her swim away when it was over.
So what comes next for Tim and Tactical Bassin? Well, the world record is still out there somewhere. The pursuit is real and we'll continue putting in our time searching for the biggest bass in the world! We appreciate the constant support from all of you that read the blog, watch the videos, and follow the Tackle Warehouse links to do your shopping. We couldn't do any of this without you!
Until next week, good luck out there!
