ENNIS, TX – A couple in Ennis credits McDonald’s for the catch of a record setting bass.
When they had no luck, Matthew McNellis says his girlfriend suggested using a chicken McNugget as bait to catch fish.
That’s when he reeled in a 24-and-a-half long bass weighing nearly 11 pounds!
McNellis says he took the bass to Highview Marina where it was declared a record-setting catch at Lake Bardwell.
Now that’s a mcfish!
The couple tossed the bass back into the water and McNellis says he may try using seasoned french fries from Wendy’s as bait next time.
