You won’t believe the toad of a bass that gingerly takes a shiner from Bassmaster pro Andy Montgomery’s hand!
Andy Montgomery, a touring Bassmaster Elite Series pro, posted this incredible video to his Facebook page April 23. Fishing a tournament on Bull Shoals/Norfolk, Arkansas that day, it looks like the real kicker fish was hiding under one particular dock.
It is quite clear this lunker of a largemouth is routinely fed by the locals; the giveaway being a woman’s voice heard at the beginning exclaiming “she (the bass) gets a little spooked…”
Talk about a thrill! And what a monster of a fish at that!
You have to love Montgomery’s reaction to what just happened – “I don’t know what to say. I just had a 10 pounder take a shiner out of my hand.”
My guess is that dock is out of bounds for the tournament!
