This 12 pound Okeechobee Bass was caught by Tim Ludlasik from Rockford Ill.. Tim and I have fished together several times now, and Tim is very good about sending me new clients and friends. Tim and I fished together several times in January and obviously Tim is a very good student. We talked about what type of cover to look for and what to look for in areas to fish. To make a long story shorter, Tim fished for a couple of weeks on his own out of his houseboat after we fished together twice in January. One sunny afternnoon Tim hit on the mother lode of giant spawning female Bass, he caught an 8 pounder, a 9 1/2 pounder and this giant 12 pound fish in the same afternoon. What a catch!
