Cover & 3 photos above: Austin Barker, of Austin Barker’s Guide Service, out of Rio Linda landed his personal best a 10.62 lb. largemouth at Lake Camanche on 7/19/19! Austin, aka austinbarkk on Instagram, wrote, “It happened, finally. I have worked so hard for this fish. Hundreds of hours, thousands of dollars, great days, terrible days, all of the above. I needed this fish more than ever right now, which makes it that much more special. Right when you think everything is falling apart, God steps in and reminds you to keep going, make another cast in a sense. Thank you to all the people that have helped me get here and supported me throughout the years. I will tag you all. She was caught on a @dobynsrodsDRX 754c, a @gmoneyjigs jig, @sunline_america 16lb fc sniper, and landed in a @bubbablade net. This fish is my new personal best coming in at 10.62lbs. I finally joined the DD club.
