Initial reports are saying that Cody Meyer has officially weighed a 10.80 new world record spotted bass out of Bullards Bar Reservoir in Northern California. This would eclipse the previous world record of 10.38 set last year by Tim Little. In fact, Little himself, a California Game Warden with the Department of Fish and Game, weighed and verified Meyer's catch. This massive spotted bass was part of a 5 fish limit that weighed in excess of 42 pounds that Meyer and his close friend JR Wright weighed.
Meyer caught the giant spot suspended over 100 feet of water with a Strike King Ocho stickbait. Cody is a guest on this month's "LTB Live" to discuss his catch with Lucky Tackle Box's Travis Moran. The Strike King Ocho happened to be featured in the December LTB Bass Box....pretty good timing LTB!!.
