That's the number of Largemouth Bass that H. Reid Jones of Raleigh, NC, has caught in the last 37 years.

H. Reid Jones of Raleigh made an entry in his fishing diary 37 years ago about the largemouth bass he caught that day.

He’s still making entries. Each of the 6,693 fishing trip since, Jones, 77, has written about that day’s catch. There is a notation for every largemouth he has caught – all 110,071.

“I started writing them down just for the heck of it,” Jones said. “There were all these tournaments with all that competitiveness and I just didn’t think that was what bass fishing was about. I just started keeping up with what I had done.”
