Carolina - On his last cast of the day 12 year old angler
Robert Womack reeled in the best catch of his life, landing a new
green sunfish state record.
Robert, of Benson, enticed the 15-ounce, 10-inch record-breaker from
a 1˝-acre pond in Johnston County on May 18, using a live night
crawler and Quantum rod and reel combo.
With more than 10 years of fishing under his belt, Robert has fished
many ponds with his dad, John, but this was his first time casting a
line into this particular pond.
We usually go fishing in another pond nearby, but I wanted to see
what was in this pond, Robert said. After I reeled it in, Dad said it
was the biggest green sunfish he had ever seen.
