It must be a good time to catch monster largemouths at Lake O' The Pines in Texas because just six days after a new record was posted, Marshall, Texas, resident Carl Clark broke that record hauling in a 15.13-pound monster.
Clark was using an XCalibur One Knocker lipless crankbait. This style of crankbaits has been growing in popularity the past few years. They definitely found a new fan in Clark.
From the story on Lurenet.com:
Clark was fishing in a smallish channel between an
island and a submerged island and his electronics were picking up a lot
of fish. He fished the area with a spinnerbait first and didn’t get a
strike, so he tried it again with the One Knocker.
Clark said he wasn’t doing anything special with the
retrieve when the big fish struck.
