UPDATE: Greg Gasiciel’s 9.32-pound smallmouth bass has been certified by Michigan DNR as the new state record! Read their release here.
Greg Gasiciel had a day to remember fishing Hubbard Lake in Northeast Michigan on October 18, 2015. Gasiciel landed the next state-record smallmouth bass for Michigan when he caught a 9.32-pound bass on a watermelon seed 5-inch Yamamoto Super Grub on a split-shot rig. The fish was weighed on certified scales and verified by Kathrin Schrouder, a DNR fisheries biologist in Bay City. He eclipsed a record that has stood for more than 100 years. The old record was caught from Long Lake in 1906 and weighed 9.25 pounds.
Enjoy the pictures of this behemoth of a smallmouth bass. What a fishing dream come true! Congratulations Greg!
