Default My son caught a big bass

My good friend owns an exceptional lake out near Henderson. We spent the night there last night and did some fishing and good eating.

My wife and I left mid morning and my 11 year old son stayed and was getting a ride back later.

My son is not a big fisherman but loves to hunt but today decided to cast around a little and after about an hour he caught this 8lb 13oz hoss!!

I am going to get a replica made for him.


My friend is the most giving person I’ve ever met and bought this lake a couple years ago in hopes for things like this to happen. He is over the moon about it also!

No need to keep wondering because the person holding the fish is the one that hooked it.
