By the end of the first day of the Pro Am California Tournament Trail Event, all eyes were on angler Keith Bryan and his astounding 21.39-pound haul. The guest of honor was a 10.48-pound spotted bass, which may be the new all-tackle world record.
“I can’t even describe it, like ‘are you kidding me?’ I want to say that sometimes,” Bryan told OutdoorHub.
Bryan, the owner of Powell Fishing Rods, caught the fish from the New Melonies Reservoir in Tuolumne County on February 22. Although the fight only lasted about four minutes, Bryan said that the fish put up a spirited fight.
