World Record Largemouth

I’m not a bass guy, but I recently came across two stories of world record largemouth bass.  The first was caught in Japan of all places.  See story at http://www.bigfishtackle.com/fishing_articles/Freshwater_Fishing_Articles/Bass_Small_Largemouth_/New_World_Record_Largemouth_Black_Bass__722.html

The next story occurred in 2006 and boasts a much larger fish that was actually caught and released.  This one in California.  The second story is truly a feel good story that is worth the read.  By the way, what happened to the good ol’ southern largemouth fisheries?

I found this quote quite interesting about this 25 pound monster, “It’s simply because there are people who are out there who didn’t think a bass can grow to more than 22.25 pounds,” said James Hall, editor of Bassmaster magazine. “It’s because of how elusive the record has been for so many years.”
