From The Capital Journal:
Tyson Hallam’s Kansas state record largemouth bass, caught in a private strip pit in Cherokee County on May 3, has been certified by the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks (KDWP).

Fourteen-year-old Hallam, of Scammon, took the trophy fish during the West Mineral Eagles fishing tournament using a jig and pig. The monster largemouth weighed 11 pounds, 12.8 ounces, edging the 31-year-old state record of 11 pounds, 12 ounces caught in 1977 by Kenneth Bingham, of Topeka.
