Eddie Peña caught his personal best largemouth bass, a fish weighing 7.71 pounds, while fishing Monday evening at the lake at Little Rock Air Force Base in Jacksonville. He was walking his dog, Kuzco, and just happened to bring a rod along with him for a walk around the lake. After about eight casts at their turnaround point, he had landed this whopper. Eddie says he was using a spinning rod with 15-pound braid and a 9-inch ribbon tail worm.
