Keiran Torr's 13-pounder was one of three double-digit bass in only a couple of weeks.

BINDURA, Zimbabwe — A couple of Zimbabwe Federation Nation anglers pulled out double-digit largemouth bass three weekends in a row this spring from a local farm dam lake.

Capital City Chapter member Keiran Torr caught his largest bass ever at 5 p.m., March 25, at the Butcombe dam reservoir. His 13.44-pound bass was taken on a green pumpkin plastic frog made by fellow Federation Nation member Itti Nolli.

In the following two weeks, Torr took a 12.1-pounder from Butcombe and his partner, Grant Peal — another Capital City Chapter member — caught an 11.9-pounder there.

“The body of water is not big at all,” said Torr, “it’s about a kilometer and a half long (0.93 of a mile) and its widest part is about a kilometer.”
