My name is Tyson Hallam and i caught an 11.12.8 pound largemouth bass in kansas about 24 days ago. It's the state record but i have to wait 30 days before it's in the books because they have to change it all. I am 14 years old haha thats the hard thing to believe. I caught it in Cherokee County. It's funny how adults and so called "Master Anglers" fish all their life to try for a big bass. I fish a lot but i guess i just hit the right spot. The coolest thing about all of this is the man who owned the former state record called me and talked to me. Also Wayne Simien sent me a letter and some signed basketball cards.
