The latest monster out of New Bullards Bar Reservoir continues a string of world record spotted bass being caught there
It's official, the 11-plus pound spotted bass caught by California angler Nick Dulleck is now a world record.
Dulleck, who caught the record Feb. 12 on New Bullards Bar Reservoir in Northern California, is now recognized as the all-tackle world record-holder by the International Game Fish Association.
His catch weighed 11 pounds, 4 ounces and beat the previous record (10-6, Timothy R. Little, Jan. 12, 2015) by almost 2 pounds. Little's record also was caught at New Bullards Bar.
Dulleck, who celebrated his birthday two days before the catch, confirmed IGFA certification Wednesday night on his Facebook page.
Dulleck's fish measured a whopping 24 1/4-inches long and had girth of 20 3/4-inches. The fish was released.
