Globetrotting angler Patrick Sebile (of Sebile lures) landed this largemouth bass on Lake Okeechobee while fishing with guide Jeff Brooks.
The big bucketmouth sucked down a Sebile Proppler Buzz and measured out to 61 cm (24+ inches), which qualifies Sebile for a potential new All-Tackle Length record. The existing record stands at 59 cm. The bass was released after the photo.
The IGFA has a relatively new class of world records for anglers to shoot at: Catch & Release length records for many species.
