James Fitzgerald

North Carolina – 51

James Fitzgerald, Master Angler from Vass, NC: With water temperatures dropping quickly, trophy largemouth bass are gathering around drop offs and points, seeking warmth adjacent to tree stumps and logs. With the barometric pressure falling, and moon-under-foot, James Fitzgerald caught this 12.2 lb monster bass when conditions were perfect. Using a 4” jerk bait, tied to 15lb braid, Fitzgerald’s Lews Smash Rod/Reel combo made easy but exciting work of this behemoth bass on a cold November 8th at sunset in Woodlake North Carolina.
