6. What's the biggest bass you've ever caught? Thirteen pounds, nine ounces. I caught it in an FLW Western Series tournament on the California Delta in 2008. I was fishing a drop shot, and it was the last cast of the day. I was fishing as a co-angler with Jeff Billings, and he had already lifted the trolling motor out of the water. I asked him if I could make one more cast, and he said "Better make it fast." The big fish hit and it was on! Eventually, I got her near the boat and he was able to net her. I culled a 12-inch bass with that 13-pounder and we took off — made it to check-in with less than a minute to spare!
