Bart Crabb, a rabble-rousing outdoor writer from the Midwest who settled in Southern California to write about bass fishing, died after a long illness this past weekend. Crabb was most well-known as the author of "The Quest for the World Record Bass," an amazing compilation from across the nation of big fish data and interviews with anglers who pursue trophy largemouths. Crabb chronicled all the information around every big bass caught each year, as much for his own use as for any story. Bart wanted to catch that big one, too, and he figured the more he knew gave him an edge.

Many who knew Bart didn't know his biggest largemouth was a 15-pound, 9-ouncer, but his biggest battle was his win over alcoholism. I admired him for both. He was a buddy, and I'll miss him.
