"I fought the giant for over 45 minutes until I got him to shallow water," he said. "I then bear-hugged the fish and got it out of the water on to the bank."

The 49 3/4-inch-long bass reportedly weighed in at 65 pounds, 2 ounces, with a 36-inch girth. That broke the previous record of 60 pounds, 9 ounces.

Dillman said he is getting the fish mounted.
