I caught this beast at Lake Perris in California. I was finessing the weed line with a texas rigged roboworm. Sunny day at about 10:30am when I set the hook. It felt like any other good sized bass until I saw it come up to try and shake the hook. When I saw the size I immediately loosened my drag two clicks for safety, I know a fish of this size could easily snap my 6lb test line. I tired it out for a min or two and pulled it up to my float tube and grab the bottom jaw. I yelled at the top of my lungs like a kid. My buddy paddled over and weighed it with his digital scale and it was 10lbs 10oz. Took a couple pics and released it to grow even bigger. I was shaking like I had Parkinson's for a half hour after i released it.
