Was The Largemouth Bass Record Broken


large-mouth-bass-recordAttention all anglers, This was posted by Bobby Cleveland on the Jackson Clarion-Ledger Website.
Espn/Bass is reporting on their website that it could be possibly the largest Largemouth Bass ever caught recently taken from Lake Biwa in JAPAN.
The fish, was taken by Manabu Kurita, and it is reported to weigh on a certified scale at 10.12 Kilograms or slightly under 22 pounds, 5 Ounces.
This would bring the 77 year old record set by George Perry fish that weighed at 22 pounds, 4 ounces, and was caught in Georgia.
Through Kurita's fish would be just a tad bigger, it would only be recognized as a tie because of the rules set by the International Game and Fish Association. They state
that for a fish to be considered to break any existing record under 25 pounds by at least two ounces.
So my thought on this would be that it matches an existing record and does not exceed by less than the amount required to defeat the standing record it should be considered a tie and the IGFA Agrees.
I have attached the picture so you can drool all over your keyboard as you read this article and do just what I am doing wishing it was me smiling in the picture here at
What do you think about the 2 ounce rule? Did Manabu Kurita break the Largemouth Bass record or just tie it?
Keep The Hooks Wet!
