Texas couple catches record-size largemouth bass, credits chicken nugget as bait

A Texas couple set a record for catching a giant largemouth bass earlier this month, but they’re giving credit to an unlikely source: McDonald’s.

Highview Marina, which is located on Lake Bardwell in Ennis, a town in North Texas, posted about the record catch on Facebook in early May.

LAKE RECORD LARGEMOUTH BASS CAUGHT AT THE LAKE. 10.802 lbs and 24 1/2 in long. Caught on a chicken nugget.

According to the Houston Chronicle, the couple used a McNugget from McDonald’s as bait to catch the 11-pound, 24-inch fish.

But what kind of sauce did they use? Our guess is tangy barbecue.
