The 2nd Los Vaqueros fishing record of 2008 was broken on Thursday, May 29 when Todd Brusco of Danville, CA smashed the old mark by more than 2 pounds.
Brusco's 12-pound catch was 2.21 pounds heavier than the old record set last year by Eric Sabye.
Todd was fishing with his friend Johnny G. in a rental boat, he said the fish took his lure as soon as he cast it. Todd and Johnny G. fish a few times a month at Los Vaqueros. They returned the record fish to the reservoir. In two years, the largemouth bass record has jumped by more than four pounds.
"It took what seemed like an eternity to get it in (probably 20 mins) with a rather light pole and 8 pound test line. John netted it on the first try as it finally got close enough to the boat," - Todd Brusco
