Going fishing with who was home on leave from the U.S. Army would have been special enough for Robert Boatman.
Doing so and hauling in the biggest largemouth bass he’s ever caught made the experience priceless.
Boatman, 45, who lives on Fairmont Road, pulled in a 7 pound, 5 ounce bass that measured 23 inches while fishing with his son, Staff Sgt. Donald Fuller, May 7 on Willisburg Lake.
