Bette's bass

Body: 

Bette Seres recently caught this 18-inch largemouth bass on a lindy rig with a nightcrawler. She caught the fish in about 15 feet of water in lake weeds, according to husband Richard. "The weeds she reeled in with the fish weighed as much as the bass did. Thought she really had a whale," he said.
