The Mississippi state bass record almost fell yesterday.  Shakey head with a trick worm fooled the fish.  It was their only bite of the day.  Pics and full story below.

Whats more impressive is he caught it on 8lb vanish as that line is junk. I used that line before and the only vanish I had was fish and whatever lure was tied to the line.

Never used it, but over the years I've read numerous negative comments about it on multiple forums. Very few positive comments. Bottom line: it's been around for years and is still on the market.

That is a sweet catch. Not sure how you calm down to keep fishing after catching that beast.
