Potential DD Bass Caught on TR - Not April Fools

Recommended Posts

Check out this blog post about a recent Kayak Tournament held by a NWA club. Participants were allowed to fish parts of TR and the big bass was caught from near Holiday Island according to reports.

Snagged, this particular event was set up as a road runner, so yes! Anglers were given a 60 mile radius from the host site. Other events are maybe limited to one lake or even one launch site. You must launch from a public launch and photos are submitted with a time stamp and GPS data.

very nice bass, but not a ten.  might have been an 8.  a bass to be proud of for sure.

Without the true girth and length measurement it's hard to be sure the rough weight of it. But according to Texas Parks and Wildlife (who probably have more data/samples collected than anyone in the world on bass management/growth statistics) a bass typically doesn't hit double digits until it breaks 25 1/4" in length. So if this fish was indeed 23" that puts it in the 7-8lb range. Add in the time of year now where they are going to be at their heaviest, an 8 is probably a fair guess. Regardless it's a beaut and don't see many bigger than that fine TR specimen. I'd be super proud of it that's for sure.
