Japan has the best chance and southern CA has the next best chance. I don't think there are any other current contenders on the planet

what people don't understand is that the reason why japan and southern cali has big bas is because they stock trout and other fish to get a healthy population, its like cheating. I know that this might sound crazy for most people but I really believe that theres a 30 pounder swimming around in Florida waters specially in the everglades. bass feeds on baby gators, iguanas, small ducks, snakes and other mammals, unlike japan and south cali these Florida bass feeds more mammals than fish so the chances are greater

That makes no sense. The bass in Japan and Cali get big because its the perfect storm. Many many variables come together to create the perfect enviornment to produce world class bass. Its more then just food. Non trout lakes in Ca have produced bigger bass then any place on earth except Japan. Add trout to those lakes and that's just one more ingredient to help them grow. Trout are extremely high in protein. They make big perfect weight gaining meals, much better then mammals and baby gators. Every lake in southern Cal has a lake record over 16lbs and most of them are over 18lbs. The trout definitely help but they are just one element. It takes more then just trout. They have the perfect climate for growing. Not too cold during the winter so they slow down but are still feeding and growing. The summer is not too hot where they are burning calories. Super deep clear lakes where they can hide from anglers and possibly the most pressured lakes in the USA so the fish learn to avoid danger which allows them to grow. Plus in Ca it is frowned upon to keep a big bass which gives them a chance to reach their maximum weight. The only other similar place to So Cal??? Japan. Sorry but the odds of any other place producing a 20lber are not realistic. If you think its cheating then that's your opinion and you entitled to it, but the facts are facts. When was the last time a legitimate 20 lber was caught outside of CA or JP? 80 years??? 50 years?? A few fish in the high teens( over 17) are caught here every year. Only Japan can match CA. I wish you luck on your quest of the WR but realistically you live in the wrong place.

The next WR bass will come out of Lake Baccarac in Mexico. I am on my phone right now but will expand on this in a little bit.

 

**Edited**

 

Lake Baccarac current rod and reel record 19.10lbs.  Lake Baccarac Lodge record 18.11lbs.  Stocked Tilapia year-round. Deep, I have seen over 200ft on the depth finder. Not much pressure(Lake Baccarac Lodge has a max capacity of 32 anglers per week) and most of the locals are bank fisherman.  Only other pressure it sees is Tilapia netters, which I might add have netted what would be the world record at least 2 documented times.  No documentation proof, but I would bet produces more 10-14lb bass a year than any other lake in the world.  It takes this class of bass to even have the chance at a WR.

Well, the "Real" World Record is 25 lbs 1 oz:  http://www.anglerwis...argemouth-bass/

 

Before Florida, Texas or any other state is actually in the running, they need to produce a few 20 lb fish. The FL State

Record is 17-4; Texas 18-2.88.

If you are really chasing the record then you better get a camera.

 

Florida doesn't have a snowball's chance of the record. Too warm, too shallow.


The scale never lies, but yours might be broken.

It's in lake mission Viejo right here in Southern California. I fish that lake almost everyday and not going for the record, I fish for fun, but there are a few guys that spend every hour of the spawn looking for it. I see 7-8 15+ pound fish everyday that circle my boat waiting for me to throw my catch back in and they annihilate it. I am not even kidding.
It's nearly impossible to catch anything huge because the water is so clear swimbaits don't work nothing really works other thank drop shot and what are the chances of a 20+ pound fish taking a drop shot? Very slim.

actually I make better sense than you, trout has a lot to do with it and the waters in Florida are wayyyyy better than the waters in CA, we have bass even in brackish water eating saltwater fish. cali has a lot of man-made lakes, we have naturals lakes and that equals better natural environment. plus there's so many ponds, canals and lakes that haven't been fish in 20+ years.

Not to be rude but to me it sounds like you asked a question but refuse to listen to anybody else's answers, no matter what evidence they provide.

I honestly doubt Florida will see a LMB over 19lbs.  From what I understand they do not live as long in Florida as northern bass due to no winter and have a higher metabolism.  Still Florida has amazing bass fishing but WRs are probably not going to happen.  The bass here grow long.  I have seen very few fat pig bass in Florida, especially south of Ocala.  Maybe I just can't catch them.  One day maybe if the Peacock bass population comes back, we can see a big Peacock as they grow bigger I believe.  But hey, Florida has much bigger and aggressive fish than bass to catch anyway so I am not complaining.
