Jacob Powroznik caught a largemouth with a cull clip in it's mouth. After a quick phone call, both tournament staff members Trip Weldon and Jon Stewart decided to weigh the fish with and without the clip. Turns out the fish weighed the same.
Jacob Powroznik ditched his plan to target largemouth after hitting 14 pounds, 15 ounces and decided to try and upgrade with smallmouth. His first smallmouth bite was over 4 pounds and ballooned his weight to 16-8.
