Texas Fisherman Catches Record Bass Using McNugget

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – This is definitely one of those fish stories you have to hear, or see, to believe.

A Texas couple says they caught a record setting bass, on a McDonald’s chicken McNugget.

Matthew McNellis told KDAF that while they were out fishing, his girlfriend suggested using a chicken McNugget as bait.

That’s when the Ennis, Texas, couple reeled in a nearly 11 pound largemouth bass.

McNellis says they took the bass to the Highview Marina where it was declared a Lake Bardwell state record.

The couple released the fish.
