Scott Hiebert caught and released this 12.2-pound Largemouth Bass on May 7 at Cub Lake in Bear Valley. He used a large shad-patterned swim bait. "I thought it was a catfish at first and I was concerned my 15-pound (Trilene BigGame) line was being tested. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. I think it might be the biggest bass taken in the Tehachapi area," Hiebert said. "She was fat with eggs, and she is still in there."
