Okay, so it wasn't a striper...but I don't think Dustin minded!
While tossing Super Spooks at night in the California Delta for stripers, Dustin here got a nice little surprise when this bonus jumbo largemouth bass blew up on his plug.
The big fish measured 26 inches long and probably weighed at least 10 pounds! For his efforts, Dustin is now entered into our Sept. Hawg of the Month Contest and will go up against other Sept. entries and battle it out for the top monthly slot. If he wins, Dustin earns some Pautzke Bait Co. headgear and then would advance to the Hawg Bowl playoffs in which he would have a shot at winning a guided fishing trip for two with Bill Swanny Swan.
