New Lake Texoma Largemouth Bass Record
On March 3, Royce Harlan of Kingston hauled in a 12.4-lb. largemouth bass from the waters of Lake Texoma, nabbing that lake record spot and setting the stage for a great fishing season.
Harlan caught the 24-inch bass in the Washita arm using a soft plastic bait. The fish is a new record bass for Texoma in the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation's lake record fish program.
"It's always a thrill to catch a big fish," Harlan said. "Everybody always hopes for that one big bite. I got it, and I'm thankful for it."
Harlan released the fish.
