The Star Tribune's head Outdoor Sportswriter Dennis Anderson asks "Was Bass a Record?" Supposedly the measurements on this fish were 23.5" Length and 21.5" girth. If those measurements were accurate it would no doubt be a record fish. However, I think the fish's true length is 21 inches max and probably isn't even that. Yes, it's good fish but I don't know that it's 6lbs, let alone 9+.
Congratulations Dennis, you got me to blog about it.
