DANIA BEACH, Fla. – A man was being credited with tying the 77-year-old world record for catching the biggest largemouth bass. The International Game Fish Association announced Friday that it had confirmed the 22-pound, 4-ounce fish caught by Manabu Kurita. The Florida-based group said Kurita caught the fish July 2 on Lake Biwa, Japan's largest lake.

Kurita's fish tied the record of George Perry, who caught his bass on Georgia's Montgomery Lake on June 2, 1932.

Kurita used 25-pound test line and a live blue gill as bait

Brandon - The Japanese love bass fishing. I think you may be right that there was not bass there in the past. However, they've been imported (not sure of that was legal or otherwise).

It's great to see someone finally break this record, but it's kind of sad because Largemouth Bass is considered an invasive species in Lake Biwa. I am learning that this is one of the oldest lakes in the world with hundreds of native species. The bass don't have much natural competition there. So, it's not surprising they flourish. I would not be surprised if this record is soon again broken soon in Japan.

If I go to Japan again I will bring a worm rod with 30 lb. braid and 9" senkos!
