Richard Bartoni came out from San Ramon to enjoy some sunshine and a little fishing on Saturday 3/6. Little did he know the fish gods would be smiling upon him that day when he hooked and landed the biggest trout of his life and set the new lake record at the same time!! Weighing in at a whopping 19.96lbs, this AMABOW squashed the previous record of 19.30lbs by over a half pound! Richard was top lining at the mouth of Jackson Creek with a bronze/gold Rapala and 4 LB TEST what a fight it must have been and it nearly broke the lure in half! Wow! Nice catch Rich!
