Huge Bass Caught At Reservoir

June 10, 2016

Salem resident Christy Rowlett has been fishing at the Salem Reservoir for 16 years and saw a first yesterday.  Rowlett reeled in the biggest bass she’s seen at 7pm Thursday night.

Using the same Road Runner Crappie Jig she used to catch a 10 pound Blue Cat at Keysport the day before, she used her micro-pole and according to Rowlett, she was very surprised it didn’t break.

Rowlett says her scale battery died before the official weight, but it was over 8 pounds and came in at 24 inches long.  She added that she took a picture of the bass to possibly get a model made, but she released the fish stating it was “too beautiful to eat.”
