We’ve seen our share of crazy bass stories, but this one from Texas takes the cake…or nugget in this case. That’s because Matthew J. McNellis caught a 24 1/2 inch long and 10.802 pound lake record bass using a McDonald’s Chicken Nugget on a jug line. His McNugget lure helped him top the current record of 10.44 pounds from 2006.
It’s a pretty crazy bait to catch a 10-plus pound bass on, but it’s not too surprising the bass went for it, considering they’ll attempt to eat just about anything. We’re just wondering if McNellis used any sweet and sour or limited edition Szechuan sauce to entice the fish even more!
