Unicorn Bass caught in Paterson River

Unicorn Bass caught in Paterson River
Article from the Maitland Mercury

Quote
A Largs family reeled in what may be the largest bass caught in the Paterson River.

Six-year-old Tom Faul felt a strong tug on his line while fishing on Saturday.

His dad Jay went to give him a hand, and together they pulled out a 60 centimetre long, 3.25 kilogram bass.

Mr Faul said he did some research and asked around and he has not heard of anyone catching a bass of that size anywhere.

He said he has been fishing since he was a teenager, but was astounded by the size of this fish.

“It was the biggest I’ve seen,” he said.

Mr Faul said Tom and his nine-year-old brother Jed were “ecstatic” to have caught the “whopper”.

Ironically, the catch was made on the same weekend, in the same river as a fishing competition organised by the Commercial Hotel Morpeth.

It would be nice if they put it on a mat so the 60cm claim could be verified.

Nevertheless, it is a good bass!

That's it on the tape measure. Total length is damn close to 60, if it isn't.....

It's a good looking fish.  If the tape measure is correct, it's the biggest I've seen.
