New Lake Gilmer Record 10.03

Was in the shop late tonight and had a weird phone call about a possible new lake record, well that got my blood pumping…but it was from Lake Gilmer.  Still an awesome fish

Met the angler at 11pm and he pulled out a nice bass from his livewell, fish was 25 1/8″ long and 19 1/2″ in girth caught at 8:20pm.  Was caught by Tamatha Parish on her husband’s home made cedar lure.  10.03lbs, was very skinny but would have been a toad prespawn.  This fish tops the old record of 9.63lbs caught in 2006.  I do not think the fish will make it, it was barely alive and had a badly inflated air bladder and the gills were very pale.
