Etowah River Largemouth Sets Benchmark
When a lake or river record sits open, which means no angler has certified a weight on a particular species for that body of water, often GON will accept a weight as a benchmark. A 7 1/2-lb. largemouth bass caught from the Etowah River fits that bill.
Eric Black, of Cartersville, holds the Etowah River largemouth record with his bass certified at 7-lbs., 7.68-ozs. that he caught on Jan. 27. Eric reported that he caught the bucketmouth while fishing with a Rapala Husky Jerk. The fish was officially weighed by WRD Fisheries Biologist Jim Hakala.
