Tim Little caught boated this huge 4.7 kg (10 lb 6 oz) spotted bass (Micropterus punctulatus) on January 12, 2015 while fishing California’s New Bullards Bar Reservoir.

Little was fishing with a reaction bait and needed only two minutes to subdue the fish after hooking up.

If approved, Little’s fish will become the new men’s 10 kg (20 lb) line class world record, and the second heaviest ever submitted! The current record is 3.92 kg (8 lb 10 oz).
