Tournament Bass Refuses To Talk To Reporters After Tough Day Getting Caught

LEWISVILLE, TX—A 7-pound, 18-inch largemouth bass bypassed reporters and went straight back into the water Saturday following a demoralizing defeat at the Bassmaster Lake Lewisville Shootout.

Hessman added that the bass would be fined $30,000 for failing to fulfill his media obligations.
