Stocked only with Operation World Record genetics, the path to grow the next world-record bass became clearer, as Jalisco combined the best elements of La Perla with an upgraded design and forage plan creating a new and improved big-bass factory. “Gary built and manages the lake, and we stocked it with our Operation World Record fish,” Forshage said. “Under the …
