Sowbelly: The Obsessive Quest for the World-Record Largemouth Bass

buy now


In 1932, a farmer named George Washington Perry decided it was too rainy to plow and went fishing. That day, George landed the largest largemouth ever recorded—twenty-two pounds four ounces. The fish has inspired and frustrated hundreds of anglers for decades. They’ve dedicated their lives to the pursuit of “Sowbelly”—a nearly mythical fish, whose swinelike girth holds the key to their dreams.

From an L.A. cop who came within ounces of besting the record to an Alabaman who has lost his marriage and his daughter to this pursuit, Burke takes readers along for the ride in this legendary race.

How to Catch and Drop-Shot for Bass in the Winter + Extra Drop-Shot Tips

Click here for a discount on PowerTeam Lures: In this video I discuss some of the secrets to catching bass in the dead of winter. Drop-shotting is a deadly tactic in the winter, and I discuss some of the keys to catching bass with it during these frigid months with a PowerTeam Lures Finicky Tickler. As you can see in the video, I have 13 rods rigged up on my deck. I went for several hours without a bite using all of those rods before I finally broke out the PowerTeam Lures Finicky Tickler on a drop-shot rod and began catching fish. I ended up catching several keepers, but only included a couple of catches in the video. And oh, my little sister made the awesome penguin beanie for me for Christmas, so I told her I’d wear it in a YouTube video sometime. Here it is! Thanks, Cozette!
