The catch of a lifetime at Grasslands

The Ledger - 03-20


Jake Lazenby, 15, of Lakeland caught this 10-pound, 26-inch bass as a lucky, incidental catch. Lazenby was fishing in Grasslands this week for bream and caught a bluegill on a dough ball. While reeling in the bluegill, the monster bass struck. His friend, Simon Bonini, 13, helped him bring it in. They released it unharmed.
