Angler Catches 14-pound Bass from the Bank

Jared Kiernan was getting a few hours of fishing in on the last day of the year and got the surprise of all surprises. Kiernan was fishing from the bank on Lake Camanche in Northern California when he bested his personal best record with a 14.2 pound largemouth bass. He was fishing a Baitsmith Magnum swimbait just bottom bouncing it from the bank when the fish hit. He got a good portion of the catch on film as well as the release. You can hear how genuinely pumped for the fish of a lifetime he is.

Awesome catch Jared! What a way to end 2019 and kick off 2020 on cloud 9.

Here are several videos from his catch from his Instagram page
