That 18lb state record that was caught at Fork was caught by a crappie fisherman who was fishing for crappie. That bass was there for one reason. When these bass get so big they need more than a few small shad to eat, they go after crappie or bar fish. That 14lb'er I caught had a half pound crappie in his mouth with the tail still sticking out and still wanted my jig/craw worm. Veracious eating machines.
Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks it was called witchcraft, nowadays it's called golf.
