Hartman adds more hardware

As Jamie Hartman said, upon realizing his latest catch had another angler's drop shot weight hanging from its mouth, "It's been a crazy year." He was referring to the fact that Hartman caught a bass at Lake Eufaula that had an Alabama rig hanging from its mouth. They don't call them largemouth bass for nothing, huh?

This largemouth allowed Hartman to cull a slightly smaller smallmouth bass and improve his tournament-leading weight another ounce or two, after clipping off the drop shot weight, which was attached to a hook deep in the bass's throat.
