Default How did japan get the igfa world record bass

I dont understand how japan got the IGFA world record large-mouth bass with a 22.4oz bass when perrys bass in 1932 was the same weight at 22.4oz wouldn't that be a tie, i thought it had to be so much larger to beat the old record

Bass fishing has been a craze in Japan for years. Freshwater angling is huge there.

And you are right, he actually tied the old record from Georgia. Sow Belly is a good book if you are interested in the pursuit of the bass record.

I meant that it's a great book that outlines the obsession that people have with the largemouth bass record and the lengths to which they will go to beat it.

Best of luck with the catfish.

you are right about that, some serious anglers spent countless amounts of money chasing that ol bass from every corner of America, even trying to grow the record in private ponds for decades Americans hunted that lunker, to no per vale then a Japanese civilian captures one Pretty amazing..Personally i thought the record would come from mexico

The World Record (unofficial) was caught in California. 25 lbs., 01 oz.
The 74 yoa man decided not to submit the paperwork for the record, why???

Most of the facts point to that the S GA fish would of never made even close to the weight it supposed to of made.

Its been debated to death but still an interesting read.
