Nearly half a million striped bass caught on Lake Texoma since December
GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. (KXII) - Seven-year-old Wake Richardson caught a 20 pound striped bass Friday morning, but he says catching big fish comes as no surprise to him.
"I was thinking 'how crazy was that?' I'm so proud," said Wake.
After a few minutes of battling with the striped bass, Wake was able to reel in the biggest catch of his life so far.
"Really excited because I kinda thought it would be a big one," he said.
Striper Express owner Chris Carey was the guide that helped Wake catch the monster bass, he says its the biggest fish he's seen someone catch with him in July.
"Man, it was like chaos. As soon as that fish grabbed his jig, all heck broke loose. Its really impressive to see a seven-year-old handle a fish like that," said Carey.
Biologists with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation and Texas Parks and Wildlife began an angler "creel" survey in December.
