SAN ANGELO, TX – Looking to catch some big fish? Well O.H. Ivie might be the spot for you.
According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Inland Fisheries Department, over the past seven days, either a Sharelunker Bass was caught or a new Smallmouth lake record was set on O.H. Ivie.
From 7 lbs Small Mouth Bass to 14 lbs Sharlunker Large Mouth Bass, Ivie has been spitting out monster fish for all kinds of anglers. See the gallery below for this week's crazy catches:
