Ferrol “Roscoe” Holley, Jr. (52) from Telogia had the honor of releasing a near-world-record Suwannee bass into the 9,200-gallon aquarium at Bass Pro Shops’ Tallahassee store. On June 26, Holley caught the Suwannee bass while fishing with his new Bass Pro Shops Pro Qualifier rod/reel combo on the Ochlockonee River. The fish initially hung up on a snag. When he saw it, Holley knew it was a huge Suwannee and not a more common largemouth bass.
