Is it Possible.

Recommended Posts

So most of ya know George Perry. Hes the lucky guy who caught the record Largemouth in 1932 and since nobody was able to Beat it. But they were some close ones but still 84 years later His record is still strong as new. The real question is Is It Possible to Beat George Perrys Record?

Manabu Kurita caught his Big one at Lake Biwaa. But sadly his record is tied to Perrys according to Official sources and still it seems Perrys bass is going to be on the throne for a Really long time.

Sure, it's possible. There could be another bass with the right genetics, food source, growing conditions, etc. grow to record-breaking size. Given the number of people fishing for bass today, it's bound to happen someday.

Kurita's bass was actually bigger than Perry's and was scrutinized a heck of a lot more.  IMO it's the real world record...But according to IGFA rules it counts as a tie since it wasn't more than 2oz heavier.

I'm sure a new WR will be caught eventually.  I'd put my money on CA or Japan for the location.

100% agreement!

Every record is meant to be broken right? And I agree it will probably be a CA lake.

The sport has grown a lot in the past 10 years, and with the latest electronics out there, someone may even see the world record before they catch it.

It'll be another story for the sport, which can only help it grow.

It will be in California, in San Diego, on a Yum Dinger, at the end of my line!

Kurita has claimed to have hooked a bass he estimates to be 25+ on a mother a couple years ago.  He says that he still knows where she lives, just cant get her to bite again.

Well he used a live bluegill to get the one he showed everyone. Have you ever used bluegill for bait ? If you know where the bass is , it's very easy. 

The hard part is finding it ! Not catching it (when you're talking about the technique he uses.)

Question - are there rules governing where the fish is caught, meaning the body of water? I'm relatively new to freshwater, so I'm just curious. I mean, it would be theoretically possible for me to build a pond on my property, stock it with fish, and feed the hell out of them until they were world record size. Then 'catch one' and bam, I have the record.

The reason I ask is because when I was growing up, I used to fish my grandfather's pond in upstate NY. He stocked his pond with stuff he caught from Cayuga Lake. At one point he had a bass in the pond that was easily 7+ pounds. His name was Leroy. He was hand fed white bread at least once a week and you had to release him immediately if you ever managed to catch him (grandpa's rules). Could that have counted if he kept growing and someone caught him when he was large enough?

Officially weighted Kurita's bass is 1 oz heavier so, 1 oz or 1 mg more ---> the record is broken ( by "rules" it's a tie )

Doubtful, warm weather and people there are catch and keep.

No offense but if it was 7lbs it was most likely female. like overwhelming odds. And yes.. the ohio state record of 13lbs was taken from a pond. 

Good luck growing a 20+lber. Genetics also play a roll. A 6 foot man and 5 foot woman don't typically have a 6'8" son if you catch my drift

Oh, I may not be able to do it in a farm pond. However, I could easily do it in 10 or 15 generations in tanks. That's why I was asking if there were provisions for it only being a natural born fish, taken from natural waters, etc.

You're probably right about it being a female, but 'his' name was Leroy, so I stuck with the male monicker.

Easily ? I don't know what the exact criteria is.. I wouldn't be that proud of a record like that anyway.. Like playing poker seeing your cards. 

I guess it would be neat though. Go ahead and start doin that. I'll buy a couple ten pounders off ya and put em in my local fishin holes.

The Kurita world record LMB was caught in July 2009 and the last giant bass reported from Japan. I doubt if Lake Biwa will produce another 20 lb class LMB.

There is always the possibly that California could produce another 22+ lb LMB.

I will say it will be beat. There is no reason to think it can't.

There are a few private well managed lakes in Texas with the intention of growing world records. If I read correctly they have reported a few males that were pushing DD or slightly above it. Some bass up to 16lbs have been caught and its still early in the management stage. We know everything has to fall into place like genetics etc.
