Mark named her Ethyl and was shipped off to BPS in Missouri where she was displayed live in their aquarium. That was the start of all the big bass tournaments on Fork. Lake hasn't been the same since. Glad I was able to fish there during the 80's when all you needed was a black & blue worm. Lot harder now isn't it. The current record holder didn't receive the notoriety Mark did because he caught it on a minnow. New trivia, what was his name ?
