Arbuckle Lake continues its impressive run of producing big bass this spring.

Last weekend, J.D. Kent of Durant landed a 13.86-pound largemouth bass that is the 15th-largest ever caught in Oklahoma, according to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation's top 20 largemouth bass list.

The fish was caught using a Jewel Bait HC finesse football jig and a Yum Craw Papi as a trailer on a hump with a deep creek channel swing nearby.

The fish allowed Kent and his son, K.D., to win the Red River Bass Club tournament with a total bag of 22.4 pounds.
