There are 10-pounders in Grand

While Grand Lake is known for its abundance of 4- and 5-pound bass, there are some lunkers in this lake. Cliff Pace proved that Saturday with two in the 7-pound range.


But we're talking true lunkers here, i.e., 10-pounders.


The Oklahoma Dept. of Wildlife Conservation started a "lake record program" for the state's primary water bodies about five years ago. Only old state records were grandfathered into this list. For Grand Lake, the largemouth bass leader is a 10.9-pounder caught March 15, 2012. It's recent evidence that a few lunkers live here.


While a double-digit largemouth is unlikely today, it's not impossible on Grand Lake.
