In mid September Brian Stedman caught a large-mouth bass weighing more than five and a half pounds.

Brian’s mother, who supplied this photo, wrote, “It took them over 5 minutes for Brian and his father to get it in the boat. This is the largest bass either of them has ever caught in our lake in all their years fishing here. I have a photo of Brian putting his whole fist down its mouth. Whew.”

Note to aspiring anglers: they released it and it swam away.
