The fish weighed 4 pounds, 7 ounces — well over the existing state record of 3 pounds, 10 ounces. The species and weight were verified by DGIF biologist John Copeland, so it seems likely Kegley’s record application will have no problems.
Does anyone care to guess what Kegley caught this fish on? And if you already know, you can’t play. Of course, anyone who has been paying attention to bass fishing for the last couple of months can probably guess.
