It seems like every other day or so there is a new report of a state record bass being caught.
Oklahoma had both their largemouth and smallmouth records broken back-to-back. Arkansas had their record broken...only to find out the guy didn't have a valid fishing license (naturally it didn't count). There were also a few other state records broken, some spotted bass records broken...you name it, it's been happening.
Crazy would an understatement.
I'm surprised this Mustad Hook a Million promotion is still going on for fear they are going to go broke paying all the records. As far as I know, nobody has claimed any of their prizes.
