This record was stripped because the angler did not have a fishing license.
Well it looks like the 36 year old state record for a Largemouth Bass was broken yesterday (February 28th). Paul Crowder caught a 16.5lb Largemouth at Lake Dunn near Wynne. The previous record was 16.4lbs, Paul beat it by just one ounce!
Wonder if he was using a mustad hook? If he was he could be getting a cool 100k!
Either way, congrats Paul! For more info check out this link.
