Breaking News: World-Record Bass Goes Belly-Up

From San Diego’s The Union-Tribune:

Dixon Lake's legendary big bass is dead.

The fish with a worldwide reputation as one of the heaviest ever hooked was found floating Friday morning on the Lake by an angler who turned it over to a city ranger.

Jed Dickerson of Oceanside and Mac Weakley of Carlsbad, who caught the bass two years ago [when it weighed in at a would-be record-breaking 25 pounds 1 ounce], were called to the ranger's office to identify the renowned fish. . . .

“That's it, that's THE fish,” Weakley said Friday afternoon.
