Chris Morris holds the 7 lb. 6 oz. largemouth bass he caught while fishing at Lake Havasu.

Local anglers Chris Morris and friend Anthony Tatzel went on a “fun fishing trip” on Lake Havasu and according to Morris, he caught the biggest bass of his life. The lunker weighed 7 pounds, 6 ounces. The team put together a five fish bag of about 24 pounds and that would win a team lot of money and a boat or two on tournaments on this lake.

Javelina hunt update

Last week, I wrote a story about our recent javelina hunt in game management Unit 18B. I reported that six out of the seven tag holders in our camp had bagged javelina.

Well on the last day of the season, Kingman resident Jay Chan and his brother Alan, who didn’t fill his tag due to a broken scope went back out. Alan found a group of pigs and after a long hike took a javelina with one shot.
