Possible New World Record Largemouth Bass

A possible new word record largemouth bass has been caught in Lake Biwa, Japan. The world record contender was caught by Deps pro Manabu Kurita. The fish reportedly measures 73.5cm (28.94 inches) long and weighed in at 10.12kg (22 pounds, 5 ounces). This is one ounce more than the previous world record caught by George Perry in 1932. According to IGFA rules any new record under 25 pounds must weigh more than 2 ounces more than the previous record in order to replace it. That would make Kurita's bass a tie for the world record.

Lake Biwa has gained a reputation for producing 18 and 19 pound bass, and has been suspected of being the next lake to produce a world record contender. It is Japan's largest lake and has been stocked with Florida Strain largemouth bass. There have been unconfirmed reports recently of a commercial fishing boat netting a largemouth bass that weighed approximately 25 pounds.
