Thunderbird Lake near Norman is not one you normally think of when the discussion is about the best trophy bass lakes in the state, but look what it coughed up Sunday.
Kenny Davis, an Oklahoma City police officer, was fishing in the “Fishing Frenzy” bass tournament at T-bird when he landed this near-11-pound beauty on a Strike King jig.
The largemouth, which officially weighed in at 10.8 pounds, already has been certified by state wildlife officials as the new Thunderbird Lake record.
This fish even has the state’s fishery biologists at Thunderbird Lake rethinking their management practices, which I will talk about more in my Sunday Outdoors column in The Oklahoman.
Davis and his tournament partner, Bill Tays, even have quite a fish story to tell, which I also will be sharing Sunday in the newspaper.
(Hey, I have to save something for our loyal newspaper readers. It’s only $2. It will be worth it.)
