  Pictured here is Diane Driver from Pearl River, NY. The date was July 9, 2005. Diane was fishing at Veterans Memorial Park in Orangeburg, NY. It was just around sunset and the bass were on a rampage. Diane Actually caught 4 in a row. Then she felt like she had snagged up, but all the sudden the water exploded. This big bass would not give up easy. The bass dove to the bottom and became entangled in an old line which had a turtle on it. With some luck she was able to land both the turtle and the bass. Both were released unharmed, but it sure was exciting evening. Diane's bait of choice was purple worms from Berkley.
