Monster 30-Pound Striped Bass Caught on the Feather River

A fishing guide service that specializes in Northern California waterways has left its mark on the Feather River with a catch for the ages.

Guide Kirk Portocarrero routinely helps his clients catch big fish in NorCal, but not many as big as the striped bass his client Danny caught on May 8th. Kirk Portocarrero posted an image of a 41 inch, 30 pound striped bass they caught on the Feather River.

Honestly, I didn’t even know there were bass this big in the Feather River. See for yourself:
