Cook's giant

Drew Cook’s BASSTrakk phone isn’t working, so he’s showing a zero. But he said his livewell is actually holding two fish worth about 11 or 12 pounds.

“I’ve got only got two fish, but one is a giant,” Cook said. “I just caught it.”

He estimates the bass weighs 7 or 8 pounds.

“I actually missed her once,” he said. “I had to leave and come back about 10 minutes later. I’m happy to have her.” 

Cook doesn’t have a marshal today, and I jokingly asked if he’d pull the bass out for a pic — and he quickly told me to jump aboard.

He said someone was watching from the bank when he was working the bass, which was locked on a bed. 

“I told her this bass would make my tournament,” Cook said.
