Thanks for putting your article together. I don't understand how he can state that he didn't know the world record weight when on the article talking about his 16+ fish on the worldrecordbass article he says,
"We took a quick photo and put the bass on a scale, which registered a little more than 16 pounds. Since **she wasnít the world record**, I put her back in the water. The fish of a lifetime swam away. Since then, Iíve showed a lot of people the photo and most of them say, "Youíre too young to have caught a bass that big."
