Theron Thompson has topped the Montana smallmouth bass record with a 7.8-pound fish he caught in September on Fort Peck Reservoir. The bass beat the old record, set by Mike Dominick in 2017, by only .3 pounds. It might have weighed more, but the Bozeman angler caught the fish in the morning and didn’t get it weighed until late in the evening after a mad dash to find a certified scale. Thompson’s fish is 22 inches long and has a girth of 17.75 inches. To read more about his journey, check out my story at
