Arkansas Does Not Have A New State Record Bass

Recommended Posts

According to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Crowder did not have a vaild fishing license at the time of the catch and while validating the catch it was noticed that the date on the fishing license was the same day of the catch Feb 28 at 6:02pm.

Mr Crowder also told told the AGFC he was using a Mann's Jelly worm and Trilene line then later told the paper he was using a Culprit paddle tail worm and Sufix line.

I guess we will never know for sure what happened that day.

its a shame about the lack of a license and the fines but i dont really care what he caught it on or what line was used its still the catch of a lifetime as long as it "actually was" caught on a hook line and pole i could only imagine catching a fish that size. makes a person think about spending a thousand dollars every spring to go to texas amd catch the fish of a lifetime when it could be in your own back yard huh?

Only since April according to the article.

The lack of a fishing license doesn't make a guy the scourge of society, gimme a break.

Yeah well, it was a victimless infraction. I'm sure he's paid his dues in other areas of life. I'd still buy him a beer and shake his hand.

Yup , that way I could laugh at him to his face for his misfortune. What a maroon.

You know, I hate a poacher as much or more than the next guy. But I'm not gonna go off on this feller without knowing all the facts. I know this will be difficult for some to understand -- because it's so popular to convict with the first 1% of the information -- but this guy prolly just goofed up or didn't have the dough to buy a licence this year. Dude was fishing in a no-name spot, caught a biggun mid-day, mid-week, and tried to cover his tracks by buying a fishing license a few hours later. He wasn't a lifelong poacher, apparently, since he bought a license last year. I see nothing that makes me think he's not a regular guy that just farked it up, so I'm inclined to give him a pass.

He's got the AR record bass, a bunch of photos and press to back it up, and great stories to tell the rest of his life. He oughta admit he screwed up, laugh it off and start shopping for endorsement deals.
