Todd Beaty had the new year of a lifetime when he ended 2017. While on a fishing trip at Lake Chickamauga in Tennessee on December 31, the angler caught a largemouth bass straight out of our wildest fishing dreams!

Weighing in at 14.53 pounds, Beaty’s bass is an absolute monster and the best way to ring in the new year we can imagine!

“Man it all still seems unbelievable,” Beaty said. “I never in my wildest dreams thought about catching a bass that size but Chickamauga for sure has some true giants! I fish in the winter quite often as I’m only an hour and a half away from Chickamauga. But come spring, I’m usually fishing a lot of tournaments all over and don’t get to visit Chic’ very often.”

Talk about starting off big bass season right! Here’s to hoping for even more monsters in the months to come.
