And as awesome as the bass Blumenstein and Vance caught, they couldn't touch this absolute beast caught by Indiana boater Chris Myers. The bass weighed a whopping 11 pounds, 6 ounces, which was a personal best for a guy who's fished bass for 37 years. The lunker helped him to a 23-5 sack on Thursday, and he's in 10th place overall with 32-4.
