The Largemouth Bass Story
During the early stages of KECHENENY beginnings, Jack set out to catch a Largemouth Bass to add to his collection. The lake his cottage was on (Billings Lake) had slot limits on the Largemouth Bass. That meant that bass between 10 and 16 could not be removed and had to be released. Now, .. Jack liked fish in the 14 range to make rubbings. If he used fish around this size, they would fit just fine on the 17 paper he used for the Gallery series without having to be reduced.
One day on his way home from the lake, he stopped at Blue Lake, just a mile west of billings. The bass on this lake did not have slot limit restrictions. Knowing there were heavy weed beds just three feet below the surface he put on a Mepps Spinner with a white buck tail. He knew that if he started the retrieve as soon as the lure hit the water, it would run just below the surface and above the weeds. Everything worked as planed as Jack hooked into a 14 Largemouth Bass on his first cast. He was quickly back in his truck heading for home to make a rubbing of a Largemouth Bass.
And thats the story of the Largemouth Bass.
