Kurita Ties Perry’s World Record Largemouth Bass

The International Game Fish Association (IGFA) announced today that Manabu Kurita of Japan tied George Perry’s 78 year old world record for a largemouth bass. Caught in 1932, Perry’s fish weighed in at 22 pounds, 4 ounces. Kurita’s fish was 22 pounds, 4.97 ounces but since it was not at least 2 ounces over Perry’s fish it could not supplant the old record.
