Palestine produces another 13-pounder

Texas' Lake Palestine produced its second 13-plus pound bass in less than a year last Saturday when Casey Laughlin of Rowlett, Texas, caught a 13.22-pounder while fishing a Media Bass tournament.

The fish initially weighed 13.02 pounds by tournament officials, but later registered 13.22 pounds when reweighed on an official certified scale. The difference was significant, since it made the fish eligible to be submitted as the new record for Lake Palestine. The fish was 26.25 inches long and had a girth of 20.75 inches.

The current Lake Palestine water body record of 13.14 pounds was set by Lindell Booth in 2013.
