Watch the 72-year-old angler lip a giant bass to bring home the money.
Rick Clunn is at the top echelon of bass fishing royalty. At 72 years of age, this Missouri-based angler has set all kinds of records while casting for cash.
His most memorable moment, however, might be this 9-pound, 11-ounce bass he landed on the last day of the Bassmaster Elite Series tournament on Florida's St. Johns River.
This giant fish sealed the win for Clunn, giving him a total bag weight of 98-pounds, 14-ounces and a $100,000 paycheck.
