Yes, you read that headline correctly…
Matthew McNellis and his girlfriend were out fishing on Lake Bardwell in Ennis, Texas when they decided to try out a new bait, a McDonald’s Chicken McNugget.
To their surprise, the pair landed a near 11 pound largemouth, 10.802 lbs to be exact. The previous lake record was 10.44 lbs caught in 2006.
McNellis released the bass after weighting and measuring it, so theory fish could swim another day and try out the rest of the dollar menu.
