Here's another "golden" bass. As I reported on July 30 (Have You Seen This Fish?), Barry Launder caught a 5-pound specimen recently in Zimbabwe.
This smaller version was caught by Zach Erbacher, according to The Bass College, which said this:
"One in a billion bass caught by Zach Erbacher October 13, 2011. This fish was released, but will be mounted by Simon’s taxidermy in Norco, CA and on display at the spring classic at the Rancho Cucamonga bass pro shops. The fish was caught on Berkley Big Game 10lb test spooled to a black Max Abu Garcia reel matched to a 4’10 GUSA custom rod."
I'll have an article about what's going on with these fish in an upcoming issue of B.A.S.S. Times. After it appears there, I will post it here.
If you know anything about golden bass, please contact me through this website.
