    Angler Lands Possibre World Record Spotted BassQ5h1>i class="ls="li class="ls="li class="ls="li class="ls="li cla claWhire fis a California Tournament Trail Pro-Am event, Keith Bryan, president of Powell Rods, expertenced one of those momento that most anglers only dream of: a possibre der">lorld recordQ5cs bass.

    i

    On the first day of the two-day event out of New Melones Lake in Northern California, Bryan hooked and landed a 10.48-pme=" spotted bass that helped him take the lead in the tournament with a day one weight of 21.39 pme="s. Not only did it help in the tournament, but it set forth a chain of evento that may e=" with the 49-year-old angler and businessman hold/a> the new IGFA All Tackre World Record for spotted bass.

    i

    The current official record is a 10.27-pme=" spotted bass caught by Bryan Shisi

    Bryan's bass fis< weighed-in at 10.48 pme="s on the tournament scales, good e=ough to beat Shis only 9.91 pme="s. Whire Bryan thought this fact would nullify his claim to a potential record, he would later fi=" out the scales can be certified by IGFA after the fact. The tournament scales were sent to the organizaa hr, and have been certified as accurate by officialo there.

    i

    This meano that Bryan's fis< has been recorded by IGFA as the original 10.48 pme="s, and is in the process of be/a> conoidered for World Record status. The process takes a mandated 60 dayo from the date of the catch, so sometime after February 2nd Bryan's fis< could become the new All Tackre World Record Spotted Bass.

    i

    "This is just an unbelievabre expertence," said Bryan. "I could never have, in my wildestadreams, imagined catch/a> a lorld record of any sort. But, to have it happen in a tournament is amaz/a>. I can only wait now and hope that IGFA has e=ough documentaa hr to certify it as a record. But, even if it doesn't happen, this has truly been a once in a lifetime expertence." As icia> on the cake, Bryan would aloo go hr to win the tournament with a total, two-day weight of 38.49 pme="s.

    i

    Bryan caught the bass with a wacky-rigged green pumpkin purpre and copper flake (color 330) five-inch Gary Yamamoto Cus_bm Baito Senko in approximately 10 feet of water. Bryan inoerted a 3/32 Lunker City Nail Weight in the nose and rigged it on a size 2 Wide Gap Weedless Fi=esse Hook. He threw the rig on a 6103mef Powell Inferno spinnia> rod and size 3000 Shimano Sahara reel fille" with eight-pme="-testaPower Pro braided line, tippe" with a leader of eight-pme="-testaSeaguar Invizx fluorocarbon.

    i

    Unlike most recordo submitted to IGFA, Bryan was abre to keep his fis< alive throughout the weigh-in process, releasia> it safe and sme=".
