Hint: 14 pound bass

Which one of these is true:

1. It’s too cold and too early to catch lunker largemouth in north Louisiana

2. Big bass only hit jigs and big spinnerbaits early in the year.

3. Poverty Point is a great lake, but it has probably peaked out for lunker bass

4. David Houston caught a new lake record at Poverty Point this week. It weighed 14.08 pounds, was 23.5 inches long and had a 24.75 girth.

If you didn’t pick No. 4, you backlashed your guess. Surely the picture was a good hint or maybe your livewell needs a new plug….   Yes, it really happened. Not much information is available on the fish but we do know this much from reports about the big lunker. It was caught on a plastic worm on the north end of the reservoir, apparently not too far from the Marina. In case those measurements didn’t jump out at you, the bass was bigger AROUND than it was LONG. No personal comments here, please. Especially you, George.

And here’s the really cool part. Houston had the fish weighed on the registered scales at the Marina at Poverty Point State Park and then let the big bass go back into the lake. Great catch. Great move. Congratulations!
