This 18.15-pound largemouth bass made for quite the New Year’s Eve celebration for Anthony Denny when he pulled her from Natchez State Park Lake in 1992. The fish was in 2 feet of water when she bit. The biologists that examined the fish found that it did not have any eggs in it and if it had been caught that following spring, the Mississippi record may have been 20 pounds.
