Foul Hooked World Record?
Should a 25 pound, 1 ounce bass count as a new world record even if it was foul hooked? That is the question that the IFGA will be trying to answer after Mac Weakly caught the lunker while fishing in Dixon Lake in Escondido, California. The IFGA regulations state that a fish cannot be considered a record if it was intentionally foul hooked. Weakly has three witnesses that say he was not trying to snag the fish when he foul hooked it. A world record bass in this day and time is worth a major load of cash in endorsements and ad money. No matter how you feel abou the way it was caught, that is one big bass. Feel free to leave a comment with your thoughts. (story from SignonSanDiego.com)
