Jim Crockett

Jim Crockett was fishing from the shores of Houston County Lake near Crockett on the afternoon of Oct. 20 when he caught and released what may be the biggest bass reported from the 1,300-acre reservoir since 1990. Crockett, 63, said the fish weighed 14.1 pounds on an uncertified digital scale. The bass hit a 1 ounce Rat-L-Trap in about 15 feet of water.
