Default Natures rare - Record catch

March 06

DNA analysis confirmed that Dru Kinslow, of Oklahoma City, caught an Oklahoma state record black bass hybrid. Kinslow caught the 8-pound, 5.6-ounce bass from Veteran’s Lake near Sulphur.
It is a cross of a smallmouth bass and spotted bass. Black bass hybrids occur rarely in nature when the spawning areas of black bass species overlap.
Kinslow was using a jig and salt craw combo when he hooked the big fish in the clear waters of 67-acre Veteran’s Lake.
“I was just trying out different lures to see what might be biting when I hooked the fish,” Kinslow said. “It fought pretty hard and went all the way under the boat. I didn’t realize how big it was until I got it in the boat.” The fish measured 22.75-inches long and was 16.5 inches in girth.
The Oklahoma state record smallmouth bass is 8-pound, 3-ounce caught at Lake Eufaula in eastcentral Oklahoma.
