Alapaha River Largemouth Record Set
On June 10, Kevin Mullis, of Waycross, headed for the Alapaha River in the early morning hours with hopes that he and his cousin Jesse Tatum would be able to put a few bass in the boat.
Little did he know that fate, luck and skill would soon come together to aid in catching an Alapaha River bass of a lifetime.
“We had originally planned to put in the river near Lakeland, but we made a wrong turn and ended up in Stockton. We looked at the river and decided since we were there, we’d try them. It turned out to be the right move,” said Kevin.
“That’s when I picked up my blue-back Rogue. It’s my go-to lure when the fishing gets tough on south Georgia rivers.”
Kevin had been throwing the plug for about a half hour when he came to the back side of a sandbar that had a log submerged in the water.
“I made a long cast and let the plug settle on the water. I gave it two jerks, and the fish killed it.”
