Middlefield Angler Catches 10-Pound Largemouth Bass

James Helmedach landed this 22 3/4 inch lunker on Lake Beseck in Middlefield last week. The fish was released after the catch.


The state record largemouth bass of 12 lbs 14 oz has stood since 1961.

I bet the camera would have worked just as well if it was taken on the water, and then immediately let go, back to the bed it was CLEARLY taken from!

The fish was released. How do we know he didn't bring it to the deck in a bucket full of water and release it in the area where he caught it? James deserves some credit for catching a beautiful fish, one of the larger bass caught in Lake Beseck in some time. Give the kid a break
