This Is Why Japan Produced A World Record

Recommended Posts

Capt G posted this pic on another site and I had to share it.

This bass is from lake Biwa and is only 21 1/2 inches long.

It weighes an incredible 11 pounds, 5.30 ounces on a certified scale.

That is the thickest bass I have ever seen. Imagine that fish at 28-30 inches :o

Boom!

That is what caused it.

A big Boom about 66 years ago.

I suggest not eating any bass you catch in Japan.

Thats like some in a pond I own, A 5 lb bass grew so fast it was unreal. But also was floating within 3 years at over 11 lbs. It was somewhat like that one. So fat it was unreal, I cut it open and it was filled with fat. Now at that time it was the only bass in this pond, plus I had for years tossed all my left over minnows from Sauger and Bass fishing in there. It was over run with them and small bream.

After that one Died I stocked it with 5 bass, 3 females and 2 males. Those have also grown off fast, plus raised more. But they die early for some reason.

Carp on the menu! High protein/fat rich carp gets them BIG fast! Japan lakes have a huge carp/koi/goldfish population from stocking and public releases.

On lake biwa,you cant release LMB ,they are considered an invasive species throughout most of japan and must be killed when caught.

Some guides can now finally release them after years of fighting kill laws. Not too many predator species in these waters,so the bass have a big dinner menu.

Many of the japan anglers use 11-14" swimbaits with some crazy color combos
