World Record Spotted Bass
From IGFA facebook:
Our congrats go out to angler Todd West of Rome, Georgia, USA – the very proud holder of the newest 2 lb tippet class record for spotted bass (Micropterus punctulatus)!
It was caught on 2 pound tippet from a kayak on a fly I personally tied. I have been hard at it for two years trying to catch that caliber of fish on fly
Check out his heartfelt celebration from his Facebook page: “I will start by saying I will not lie and try to be tough, as I type this I fight tears and shaking hands for many reasons. I just received a phone call from the IGFA that I now hold the 2 pound tippet world record for spotted bass. One hell of a ride it’s been chasing this dream record and truly an honor to have the support I’ve had from sponsors, family, and my friends.”
So here’s to fishing and big dreams!!!!!!!
Cheers and good fishing to you all!!!!!!
