Outdoors: Angler lands huge largemouth bass on his birthday

Dennis Choi of Rocklin went fishing for trout off the north shore day use area at Lake Camanche on Monday. He didn’t hook any trout, but he managed to catch and release a monster 15.46-pound largemouth bass while using Berkley Power Eggs.

This fish is the second biggest largemouth ever caught at Camanche and is eclipsed by only the lake record of 18.17 pounds set in 2015. “It was my 73rd birthday,” said Choi. “I feel very lucky to catch such a huge fish, especially since it was the second bass that I have ever caught.” He hooked the fish around noon while fishing with an Okuma 8.6-foot ultralight spinning rod teamed up with a Shimano reel. The reel was filled with four-pound test P-Line CXX line, tipped with a four-pound test Berkley Vanish fluorocarbon leader.
