DANIA BEACH, Fla. - A man was being credited with tying the 77-year-old world record for catching the biggest largemouth bass. The International Game Fish Association announced Friday that it had confirmed the 22-pound, 4-ounce fish caught by Manabu Kurita. The Florida-based group said Kurita caught the fish July 2 on Lake Biwa, Japan's largest lake.
Kurita's fish tied the record of George Perry, who caught his bass on Georgia's Montgomery Lake on June 2, 1932.
Kurita used 25-pound test line and a live blue gill as bait.

There was an article on him in Bassmaster magazine this month. He exclusively targets big largemouths. He uses huge artificial swim baits or live bluegill in the 10 inch range. He cuts off the dorsal fin of the bluegill so it swims around wounded and invites the big bass to nail it.
