While fishing at Toledo Bend this past Monday with his grandfather, Seth Chataignier, a fifth grader at Bridge City Intermediate, caught a 7 lb. 4 oz. largemouth bass. His grandfather, Mike Chataignier, asked Seth if he wanted to keep the bass to have it mounted by a taxidermist. Being a true conservationist, Seth insisted on releasing the large female bass so she could spawn and possibly grow into a bigger trophy for some other fisherman. Since the bass was released, Seth’s grandfather will have a fiberglass replica made for Seth. That day, Seth and his grandfather caught only two bass. Seth caught the big one, while his grandfather caught a little 1-pounder.
