Default Nice smallie at Lake Berryessa

This from the Napa Register fishing report:

Mike Sperbeck caught and released an 8-pound, 13-ounce small mouth bass at Lake Berryessa in late September. This is truly a trophy catch. Typically a really big smallie is 5 pounds. The California record is 9 pounds, 4 ounces from Lake Pardee. Mike’s catch was only 7 ounces short of the record.

Think there was a mistake made somewhere, there is a report and photo on Wb of an 8 lb 13 oz largemouth that he caught, but not smallie.

According to the ESPN page, July 9, 2007 a smallmouth was caught at Pardee that weighed 9 lbs 13 oz. it did not say whether or not it was a state record. I would imagine you have to jump through a bunch of "red tape" hoops to qualify for state record status. Another website says the California record was 9 lbs. 1 oz. caught in 1976

The Pardee fish is the new State record. The old record was as stated and caught in 1976 out of Trinity. Indeed Berryessa could put out such a fish, but I've yet to see anything over 6 in years.
