I don't know if this is for real or not but I heard "through the grapevine" that a state record tying largemouth bass was caught on Christmas Eve at Loch Raven. The story goes that an 11lb. 6 oz. bass was caught from the bank out of Loch Raven using a topwater bait.
I have looked online and have not been able to find any story from the DNR on the catch so I might be simply spreading a rumor at this point.
I look forward to hearing more about this in the upcoming weeks!
[Update: 2016-02-2016 Tyler Judd passed along the pic of the giant bass. He mentioned "apparently the pic was uploaded on Christmas eve despite the time stamp on the pic.". I believe it was from a friend of his. Judge for yourself. ]
