Angler Lands 17-pound Bass, the Largest Caught in Texas in 30 Years

Last week Brodey Davis caught a 17.06-pound bass on the O.H. Ivie Reservoir in Texas. It’s likely the biggest bass caught in the Lone Star State in 30 years as it’s exceeded only by Barry St. Clair’s 18.8-pound Lake Fork which was landed in 1992.

Davis headed to the reservoir from Tuttle, Oklahoma with the intent of getting some big bass. He told reporters, “It’s been an unbelievable day. We drove from Oklahoma to specifically fish O.H. Ivie for a double-digit bass. My son Stetson, who is nine, was out of school due to the winter storm that went through Oklahoma earlier this week.”

Measuring 27.25 inches long, the female bass’ girth was 23.25 inches due to the eggs she was carrying. Davis caught the bass on a 6th Sense Divine Swinbait lure and his son Stetson netted the fish. This 17.06 lunker is reported to be a new record of the O.H. Ivie reservoir and is likely the 7th largest bass ever caught in Texas.
