Lake Seed Record Largemouth

Nick Carter | March 13, 2009

Johnny Appling with his monster largemouth bass from Lake Seed.

Friday the 13th wasn’t an unlucky day for Johnny Appling, of Buford. On Friday, March 13 in 2009, Johnny caught a 14-lb., 4-oz. lake-record largemouth on Lake Seed.

He might attribute it more to persistence than luck, but Johnny caught the Lake Seed record while fishing a Sworming Hornet Fish Head Spin with a white fluke trailer in about 20 feet of water on a river-channel point. The fish smashed the previous Lake Seed record largemouth that weighed 11-lbs., 7-ozs. caught in February of 2007.
