Remember how we said the fishing is still good in December? Well, one California angler might say that’s an understatement. Read on to find out why.
One Big Spot
In December, a California angler caught a spotted bass at New Bullards Bar reservoir, located in northern California’s Yuba County, that very well could be a new world record. Cody Meyer, a professional angler from Grass Valley, caught the massive bass on a soft plastic lure about 20 feet below the surface in 100 feet of water. The fish weighed 10.8 pounds on a certified scale. Currently there is another fish of a similar caliber also caught at New Bullards Bar going through the world record certification process. Official results of both fish are yet to be determined. Congratulations to Cody on a fish of a lifetime!
