Has anybody read the book sowbelly. What an awsome read. A lot of the names in the web article above are names highlighted in the book. The world record hunt is a pretty serious thing in southern cal. What a Pig that fish is. Seems like there will be some dissapointed anglers in southern cal. What a fish.

Re: NEW WORLD RECORD BASS CAUGHT IN JAPAN TODAY!!
I cant beleive the lack of coverage that many newspapers and websites are giving this!! The old world record largemouth bass caught by George Perry has been persued for more than 77 years, and was almost broken several times, and could be worth MILLIONS of dollars in promotions and endorsements, and yet it seems the coverage and excitement in the bass fishing world is as sluggish as the economy!
Has everyone just given up and become complacent? I know just 4 years ago this would have generated ten times more excitement and news. It is that it is from Japan that is the problem?? Would it have generated more talk and enthusiasm if it were from California like everyone expected it to be?? I am not sure, but I know that the attitude of many trophy hunters and average bass anglers is rather disappointing. In this economy right now, we need to be excited about something! This is a great catch no matter where its caught! Tell me if you think the same thing or see it differently.

Can't really get excited about this one, granted it is an awesome catch no doubt. However it being speculated it was caught on live bait then on artificial and it only being less than an ounce heavier than Perry's. I think once this record is really beat, not just beat but smashed with a 25lb.+ monster then there will be some real coverage. Plus if it's kept alive to be displayed somewhere might generate even more publicity. Impressive fish though and should be respected.

No News on Potential World Record Bass, Plenty of News to Come from ICAST

By Vance McCullough

Well,rumor has it that the Deps rod company in Japan wants exclusive rights to Manabu Kurita’s story (apparently available only in Japanese language) on his big catch. They intend to sell the DVD’s. An item that won’t rank very high on many Christmas wish lists here in the States.

This is yet another big blow to Kurita’s ability to monetize his good fortune. Not only was the fish caught on live bait in Japan,during a global economic downturn, but now the publicity train can’t even make it out of the station. Too bad.

I say we bring that world record title right back home anyway.Where’s the next Dottie? Too bad she washed up dead this past spring.

While news is slow from Japan, there will be plenty of it from ICAST, set to begin tomorrow.

If using live bait disqualifies it then re-read the story as it says he caught it on live bait. Something looks "fishy" with the pic...

Given all the controversy surrounding Manubu Kurita's pending World Record Largemouth Bass, Bounty decided to pass the picture along to the Forensics Team. Using the picture below, it was conlcuded that this fish was 28.27". While this may break the BountyRecord, it falls quite short of the 29.4" called.

UPDATE CERTIFICATION OF SCALES BY DEPS: 7/11/09

One step closer to being official. They tested the certified scales the fish was weighed on yesterday.

http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fblog.eigyo.co.jp%2Fdeps-okumura%2Farticle%2F23610&sl=auto&tl=en&history_state0=

It actually came out as being consistently 5 grams on the light side. This is exactly why the fish had to be killed, sadly. Any inaccuracy would make people puff up their chest and disqualify it.

Heres a question somebody asked me the other day and I dismissed it until I looked at all the photos and the video on this bass again in slow motion and up close. What are all those red marks on it?? They do look like the marks that all the fish had on them that my cousin who is a commercial fisherman used to catch in gill nets! ?? I have all the photos and videos at my site. Tight lines, Steve — Delaware Trophy Bass

BASS editor Ken Duke said on Bassmaster.com Friday that the biggest rumor circulating at last week's ICAST show in Orlando was that Manabu Kurita may have caught the fish in an off-limits part of Lake Biwa.

Duke also said that IGFA world-record rules aren't accepted for fish caught in "sanctuaries.''

And that is considering that Kurita's fish did weigh 22 pounds, 5 ounces.

I'm still waiting for proof.

Re: Re: NEW WORLD RECORD BASS CAUGHT IN JAPAN TODAY!!
Yea, you can understand it as you created it. I'll need the Rosetta Stone to help me decipher it. When you quote a source OTHER THAN YOU, you should break it up with QUOTATION marks, not paragraph breaks. Maybe that's why it's so confusing to me. The bass is awesome. I looked at the one video about it. I wonder if he had a bounty code for that week. He sure had a ruler underneath it.

Looking at today's results from BOUNTY, a 12 POUND BASS won 1st place and was 26 INCHES LONG. This fish is only 3 inches longer YET ALMOST DOUBLE THE WEIGHT????? Something smell fishy yet? And the mouth on it looks like it has something else mixed in with it...Like one of those GIANT CATFISH they have over there...IMO

So based upon your writing YOU watched the vids for 2 hours and figured out it might be a gill net that made those marks? Now you have added Bounty's info at the end just like you wrote it yourself, when in fact, once again, you just copied and pasted is all I'm saying. If you QUOTE THE QUOTE it would make more sense.

Also if you will notice in another of your QUOTES, that the press didn't know much BUT they sure knew what BRAND ROD and LINE were "used" Heck, it's almost the first thing reported. Then everything else gets foggy...

It's Crappie round here.

It looks like the record will NOT be accepted by the IGFA as he was fishing in a non-boating area of the lake from a boat. His catch is awesome but will not count as the 'new record' as the IGFA has a policy against such.

I wrote to the Japanese agency responsible for certifying the catch and here is their response.

"The angler submitted a world record application to Japan Game Fish
Association. We are in the process of checking it; as soon as it is
confirmed of its validity, the application will be forwarded to the IGFA for a
world record. Because it was a very important catch, we need to take
enough time to make sure everything is correct and IGFA-legal."

**** Note*** You only have 30 days to submit an IGFA application for a world record if its in the United States!, But you have up to 90 Days if its not in the country!** So we may have to wait 50 more days to see whats up with this strange, almost unmarketable world record bass.***!!


Even If this bass is submitted to the I.G.F.A. to be certified, which at this point, I don't think it will be), I really doubt that it will be certified at all even as a tie. Once again, We were dupted by a Mullet wearing, Bleached Blonde headed Elvis Impersonator! Help!! Where's Mike Long and Mac Weakley when you need them. Lets put this baby to bed and get on with a serious record we can all be proud of, and maybe when we do catch the "REAL" world record largemouth, it will not look as if it has a diaper rash!!

Re: NEW WORLD RECORD BASS CAUGHT IN JAPAN TODAY!!
UPDATE 8/27/09
Here is an email Matt Lures received from a very reliable source. He lives in Japan and owns a tackle store there. his name is Greg Vella
I have come to the conclusion that Japan will probably not allow the big bass to become a record (JGFA). There is just too much (political) at stake, with the recent push to make all of Japan “catch and kill” for bass and bluegill. The Japanese government has spent millions of dollars on this program, which includes supplementing the income of the commercial fisherman at Lake Biwa.
> Letting Mr. Kurita’s fish become the new Japan record (JGFA) will send the wrong type of message to the taxpayer, and draw unwanted attention to the positive aspects of bass fishing.
>
> Here is where we stand:
>
> I mentioned before a about the distance from the bridge restriction ( the bass was caught near the Biwako Bridge)–It seems that his boat was not within the restricted area, but now they are saying they are going to DQ him because he CAST into the restricted area (which is not legally a “restricted” area anyway). I don’t understand? Lake Mission Viejo has a 20 foot from the dock no fishing zone, but that means your boat must not be withing 20 feet when fishing, not your cast. Another example would be the buoy line at Perris, or Casitas. As long as your boat is outside the buoy line, you can cast wherever you want.
> This is weak.
>
> What is weaker is that they are now saying the he “broke the law” to catch the fish due to his bait (a bluegill). Bluegill are not illegal to be used for bait (nobody cares), but they are illegal to release back into the lake alive. The bass “No Release” law includes bluegill and everybody is aware of this due to posted signs all over the lake. But they are now saying that Mr. Kurita “released” a bluegill back into the lake when he pinned it on his hook, and tossed it in front of the giant bass.
>
> This is really pushing it, IMO.
>
> What they don’t know, and I just found out today, is that Mr. Kurita is registered, like I am, to be able to release bass and bluegill.
>
> Even so, I sure they will make up something else; they do not want this fish to become a record, because:
> As of two days ago, the paperwork has not even been submitted to the IGFA.
> JGFA is saying that it must pass their scrutiny before he is “allowed” to submit to the IGFA; it should not be this way, as the IGFA is a separate entity.
> It seems it is catch 22 for Mr. Kurita.
>
> There is so much misinformation going around that it is sad, at best. The same type of people that said the Biwa Lake grow fat on all the salmon (there are none) are giving opinions on stuff they know nothing about.
>
> Hope all is going well for you,
> Capt. G
And here is something else that crossed my mind today. If he used Live Bait, which was a Coi, it weighed at least 4 ounces, probably more, and you would think that the bass swallowed it after being caught, which means it had at least 4 ounces added to it artificially by the angler when it was weighed. Should this really count?

BREAKING NEWS!



BREAKING NEWS SEPTEMBER 15th, 2009




IGFA receives documentation, photos on pending world record largemouth bass caught in Japan



Weight matches current IGFA record held for 77 years by Georgia's George Perry




Manabu Kurita photos at http://delawaretrophybass.com



DANIA BEACH, Fla. USA, (September 15, 2009) --- Documentation for a much talked about 22 lb 4 oz largemouth bass, caught from Japan's largest lake in July, has arrived into the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) headquarters for world record recognition.




Late Monday, the IGFA, the 70-year old non-profit fisheries conservation, education and record-keeping body, received the application for the largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides), caught July 2, by Manabu Kurita, 32, of Aichi, Japan. IGFA rules for fish caught outside the U.S. allows anglers 90 days to submit their applications from the date of their catch.




IGFA conservation director Jason Schratwieser said the World All-Tackle application is currently under review after it was received through the Japan Game Fish Association (JGFA).


Schratwieser said the application stated the bass weighed 10.12 kg (22 lbs 4 ozs) and was pulled from Lake Biwa an ancient reservoir northeast of Kyoto. Photos and video were also submitted with the written documentation.



Kurita's fish would tie the current record held for over 77 years by George Perry caught on Georgia's Montgomery Lake, June 2, 1932, near Jacksonville, Georgia.




In North America the largemouth bass, and especially the All-Tackle record, is considered by millions of anglers as the "holy grail" of freshwater fish because of its popularity and the longevity of Perry's record.


Largemouth bass have also been introduced in many countries and in Japan fisheries officials consider it an invasive species. In addition, because bass are not native and are stocked in Japan, many speculated that the big bass was a sterile triploid. However when biologists in Japan examined the ova of the big female they concluded that the fish was not triploid.


IGFA World Records Coordinator Becky Wright reported Kurita's fish measured 27.20 inches in length and an almost equal girth of 26.77 inches. She said Kurita was using a blue gill as live bait trolling through a canal.


A decision by the IGFA of whether Kurita's fish will tie Perry's record may take up to a month.


"We have a formal relationship with our sister organization, the Japan Game Fish Association where they first collect and review record applications for fish caught in Japan," said Schratwieser. "It works out well because they not only translate applications but can also contact the angler if more documentation is needed.
"We still have a number of questions to ask them and Kurita regarding local laws and the area he caught it in while he was trolling through a canal on the lake," said Schratwieser.
"We hope to make an announcement in three to four weeks."



Annually the IGFA publishes a comprehensive list of current records on nearly 1100 species of fresh and saltwater fish across the globe in its highly acclaimed World Record Game Fishes (WRGF) book which is divided into all-tackle, line classes, fly, and junior record categories.



The IGFA has been recognized as the official keeper of world saltwater fishing records since its founding in 1939. In 1978 it added the field of freshwater record-keeping when Field & Stream magazine transferred its 68 years of records to the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame & Museum, the association's world headquarters in Dania Beach, Fla.

The IGFA is a not-for-profit organization committed to the conservation of game fish and promotion of responsible, ethical angling practices through science, education, rule making and record keeping. IGFA members are located in over 125 countries and territories. The IGFA welcomes visitors to its interactive Fishing Hall of Fame & Museum in Dania Beach, Florida.

Again two notes:

1) If accepted it will tie the record NOT break it.
2) The area in which the fish was caught may be in waters which are deemed NOT in accordance with the IGFA's RR's.

Still an awesome catch but NOT the new world record in any case.

Re: NEW WORLD RECORD BASS CAUGHT IN JAPAN TODAY!!
Some might think it's not fair. Others would complain that it would be easy to cheat a half a world away.

And I'm sure conspiracy theorists on both sides of the fence will complain for and against the alleged 22-pound, 4-ounce largemouth bass caught by Manabu Kurita in Japan's Lake Biwa, the country's largest reservoir.


Yes, that is the same weight of the long-standing world record of 22-4 that has belonged to the late George Perry for 77 years.


Let's face it. There will be plenty of people in this country with the jingoistic attitude that there's no way an Asian with orange hair should share in even a piece of the most-hallowed freshwater fishing record there is.


Here's why it's a good thing.


First of all is the fish. Look at it. It's awesome and no doubt a bass. Some speculated it was a triploid or sterile version of the species, but fisheries biologists in Japan confirmed the fish's eggs were indeed fertile. Now look at the water behind it. It looks bassy, just like lakes I've fished in Florida and seen in videos in Mexico,Cuba and Central America.


It certainly looks more like what Georgia's Montgomery Lake must have looked like on June 2, 1932, when Perry caught his fish, than any off those sterile looking mountain reservoirs in Southern California that have been spitting out 20-pound bass for years.


We've all read about how potential world records were pursued on those California lakes. The thought of one of those guys setting this record seemed obscene.


They would locate a huge female fish on a spawning bed and then usea group of guys to sit on it 24/7 trying to induce a strike, which they did several times when it was under record weight.


Then when one bass finally got big enough, all they were able to do was snag it. Kurita caught this fish fair chase while trolling a bluegill. That sounds a whole lot better to me.


I've got more of a problem with the publicist from the International Game Fish Association (IGFA), that will eventually certify or deny the record, that used seperate words to say "blue gill." Are you kidding me? Has this person even looked at their own record book?


The last thing I'll have you examine is Kurita's smile. It doesn't matter to me that he's not some Bubba with patches all over his shirt or that his grin is under orange hair because it's genuine. My gut reaction looking at the picture is he caught the fish, fair and square.


Another thing I find of interest regarding this fish is the attitude toward it in official circles in Japan. There the largemouth bass is considered an invasive species. They have no reason to feather their own nest in this regard.


The last idea I'll present is the term of world record itself. I long ago tired of hearing about world champions that didn't compete against an entire world. Now, it seems, the largemouth bass world-record chase has actually taken on a world-wide scope.


All that does is further validate Perry's long-standing claim. It's not diluted by Kurita's fish, but enhanced.


Kurita's fish still has to pass at several weeks of scrutiny by the IGFA before it is declared a world record. His documentation has arrived in Dania Beach, Fla., home of the IGFA.


"We still have a number of questions to ask the Japan Game and Fish Association and Kurita regarding local laws and the area he caught it in while trolling through a canal on the lake," said IGFA conservation director Jason Schratweiser. "We hope to make an announcement in three or four weeks."


Here's hoping Kurita and his fish pass muster. I think it would be good for the sport.

Re: NEW WORLD RECORD BASS CAUGHT IN JAPAN TODAY!!
The bass fishing world has been waiting on the edge of its collective seat for the past two weeks, waiting for the International Game Fish Association to announce whether or not Japan’s Manabu Kurita will be certified as holder of the new world record largemouth bass.


As of this writing, IGFA is waiting for a response from the Japanese Game Fish Association concerning the rumor that Kurita was fishing in a restricted area when he boated the giant bass. Perhaps the following information will clear up any questions about the catch.



Kurita caught the bass beneath the Biwako Oohashi bridge, which connects the west bank (Katata) of the giant lake to the eastern shore (Moriyama).The pilings of this bridge are numbered, giving anglers and boat captains a reference when navigating beneath the structure. It is illegal for anyone to stop between piling four and piling six, as thisis the tallest portion of the bridge (it rises closer to the west bank to allow for high-mast boats) and all boat traffic is directed through this area.


It is important to note that the law states you cannot stop in this area. It is not illegal to troll this area or otherwise fish while moving. This is a moot point, however, because Kurita was fishing the eastern side of the bridge, well away from this restricted area.


Further supporting Kurita’s innocence, July is a very popular month for tourists on Lake Biwa, and the boating traffic from sightseeing tours, commercial fishing boats and jet boats would have made the area virtually unfishable and extremely dangerous.


The rumor of his fishing in a restricted zone may well have come from local anglers, according to Takuji Naruo, a local fisherman and representative for Jackall Bros. Lures, whose office is located on the banks of the lake.

“Many bass anglers agreed to not fish any of the bridge pilings because it could be dangerous with big wakes from the sightseeing boats. And we also do not want to interfere with commercial fishing nets, which are often in the area. However, it is not at all illegal to fish there.


The only government law concerning the bridge has to do with the area between pilings four and six. If you stop there, you may get a ticket,” Naruo explains.

So, Kurita might have broken a gentleman’s agreement between bass anglers on the lake, but he did not break the law. Once the JGFA explains this to the IGFA, barring any unexpected hiccups, Mr. Kurita’s bass is likely to be granted world record status.

Manabu Kurita told me the truth today about how, when and where hecaught the pending world record bass. Every detail. How do I know it’sthe truth? I know because Mr. Kurita doesn’t care if his fish iscertified as a world record or not.




Manabu Kurita fishes in the area where he caught the 22-5 largemouth.




Shy and unassuming, the 33-year-old Kasugai native became hooked on bass fishing 18 years ago.




“I saw a photo of a largemouth bass in a magazine and I was very impressed with how it looked. So, I tried fishing for bass and I became passionate about catching them,” Kurita explained.




Kurita’s passion takes him to the lake more than 150 times a year. According to his estimations — and those close to him consider the estimates conservative — Kurita annually catches more than 100 bass greater than 8 pounds.




On July 2, 2009, he landed his biggest fish ever (although not thebiggest he has hooked). The 22-pound, 5-ounce behemoth ate a live sunfish he had rigged on a 5/0 Fina Power Finesse bait hook.




“I had noticed this big fish swimming around the bridge piling, andI was pretty sure she would eat a bluegill. So, about 11:30 a.m., I went to the bridge piling and cast the bait to the north side. I twitched it a couple of times and the big bass ate it. It was my first cast,” Kurita explained.




Kurita showed me the exact spot on the bridge, made the exact cast and explained how surprised he was once he landed the fish.




“I knew it was big, but I did not think it was that big,” he admitted.




Using the same techniques as when he caught the potential worldrecord, Kurita landed this 8 1/2-pounder while showing the area to Bassmaster Magazine editor James Hall.




The IGFA has not yet certified Kurita’s catch as a world record because of a rule that states a record fish cannot come from a sanctuary or no-fishing zone. The remaining question has been about whether the three marked bridge pilings where he was rumored to have caught the fish are no-fishing zones, and, if they are, was Kurita actually fishing near these three pilings? (The other bridge pilings are not marked, so fishing, anchoring and tying to them is totally legal.)




When I asked Kurita to take me to the exact spot where he caught the bass. He did not hesitate. We drove directly to one of the three marked pilings, confirming the rumors that he caught the fish in an area that was marked: “Do not stop.” He could just as easily have taken me to another bridge support, one that would have completely negated the naysayers.




His honesty was refreshing. His motives seemed pure.




However, this supported those who questioned the legality of hiscatch. Does the “Do not stop” sign suggest, and thereby give authorities, the ability to ticket anglers fishing the marked pilings?




This determination is left to the local police and, ultimately, theJapanese Game Fish Association and the International Game Fish Association.




After my meeting with Kurita, I met with Yoichiro Oguri, president and owner of Popeye, a very popular tackle store chain (Japan’s version of Bass Pro Shops). Mr. Oguri is a very well-connected and respected icon in the Japanese fishing industry. During our conversation, I asked if he had a contact within the JGFA, and, if so, could he find out the status of the Kurita world record application.




Mr. Oguri contacted JGFA and found out the delay was because of the fact that they were unsure of the local laws surrounding Biwa’sno-fishing zones. Mr. Oguri then contacted the Shiga-Ken Police Department (enforcers of Lake Biwa laws). He asked them if fishing was allowed near the three marked bridge pilings. The answer was “yes.” It is illegal to anchor or tie to the bridge pilings, but fishing next to or around them is completely legal.




Kurita broke no laws in the catching of the 22-5.




Mr. Oguri then contacted the chairman of the JGFA and informed him of his findings.




Moments later, the JGFA gave Kurita’s catch the thumbs up and sent a letter of support to the IGFA. As of this writing, the IGFA has not yet commented on the status of the record. However, it seems all concerns about the legality of this catch have been answered. It is likely Mr.Kurita’s bass will be recognized as the biggest largemouth ever caught.




And if for some reason the IGFA still does not recognize Kurita’s accomplishment?




“That’s OK,” Kurita replied with a shy grin. “I think I might be able to catch a bigger one next year.”




You can talk with Manabu Kurita LIVE in the forums at my site where he is a member.

Re: NEW WORLD RECORD BASS CAUGHT IN JAPAN TODAY!!
There still has not been any ruling on the pending record bass caught by Mr. Kurita at Lake Biwa.



It has been half a year; usually records are either approved or disapproved within a couple of months at best.

A new Japanese Yellowtail record (over 100 pounds!) was caught on Oct. 24, 2009, and it has already been approved...


But yellowtail record submissions do not have all the politics that largemouth black bass record submissions do here in Japan.

One of my sources in the know tells me that there is no way the JGFA will allow the grand fish to become a new Japan record--especially since it comes from "catch and kill" (catch and release of bass is illegal) Biwa Lake.



Interestingly enough, the IGFA is an autonomous body, and is supposed to make decisions regardless of what other (ie. JGFA) organizations allow/disallow.


Yet the IGFA has not rendered a final decision on this fish.


Steve Mras, multiple IGFA WR holder, emailed me the following:


No decision yet on possible record bass caught in Japan


The IGFA is still waiting additional information before making a decision for world record recognition on a 22 lb 4 oz largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides), caught by Manabu Kurita, 32, of Aichi, Japan, from that country’s largest lake July 2. IGFA conservation director Jason Schratwieser said the World All-Tackle application is still under review after it was received in mid-September through the Japan Game Fish Association (JGFA). “We’ve been corresponding with the angler via our sister organization, the JGFA,” said Schratwieser. Besides being a non-profit fisheries, education and conservation organization, the 70- year old IGFA has long been the world’s recognized record-keeping body for over 1100 salt and fresh water recreational fish species. Schratwieser said the bass weighing 10.12 kg (22 lb 4 oz) was pulled from Lake Biwa an ancient reservoir northeast of Kyoto. Photos and video were also submitted with Kurita’s written documentation. If approved Kurita’s fish would tie the current record held for over 77 years by George Perry caught on Georgia’s Montgomery Lake, June 2, 1932, near Jacksonville, Georgia. In North America the largemouth bass, and especially the All-Tackle record, is considered by millions of anglers as the “holy grail” of freshwater fish because of its popularity and the longevity of Perry’s record.




\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ \\\\\



Mr. Kurita has made a complete submission, with more info provided than many submissions that became records with no problem.

It makes one wonder what "additional information" the IGFA could be possibly be waiting for?



I have met Mr. Kurita several times in my tackle store in Aichi, Japan. He is an avid bass angler, with a passion for hunting big fish; it seems very unfortunate that such a fine catch that should bring so much controversy.

Nobody I talked to here can remember a JGFA record submission that has taken this long. I am not going to hold my breath on a ruling anytime soon.

Re: NEW WORLD RECORD BASS CAUGHT IN JAPAN TODAY!!
truley I am going to sound like an ass but this talk about this bass is old and has lost my interest long ago and I am just tired of it ..the whole thing is a bull and everything seems fishy..I think it should be Dq'd(especially with all the discrepencies) ..I could see the boosting about it if someone we knew,if it was even caught in North America..or I could be interested and impressed if it was a bounty member..but this fish has got way too much hype over a not that impressive fish..now I found certain members of bounty have caught way more impressive fish that only get a smidgen of hype...ie...a certain rainbow record..now that is impresive fish and record ...think what are you promoting by going over this again and again ..its kinda like ice cream great in moderation till we are full and sick of it..By the way I am still impressed thinking about that record "Rainbow" by fishinggeek and that Big Jap Bass has lost its Wow long ago...Sorry to be a little rude but it is the facts and my feelings and as I am human I am sure I'm not the only one..but I am part Newfie and it allows me to speak my mind freely...Gl to all happy new year and fish on....

that fish out of lake Dixon in California was way bigger even though it didn't get the record it was 25 lbs the bass in Japan was probably genetically engineered because how do you go from no fish in the top 25 all time from any country to the record

Try actually reading a little bit and learning about something other than Walleyes in Canada and maybe you will understand.?? Here's the facts read them or not I could care less, and yes you are an ass as far as I am concerned and you sound predjudice and jealous as well. Just my opinion. http://www.delawaretrophybass.com/worldrecordbass.htm and I hate to tell you the entire world does not care about a Rainbow even a tenth as much as the new world record bass. That is just a fact. Have a nice New Year.

"that fish out of lake Dixon in California was way bigger even though it didn't get the record it was 25 lbs the bass in Japan was probably genetically engineered because how do you go from no fish in the top 25 all time from any country to the record"

Here's how.. You go here, read, listen to the audio interviews by Bassmaster, Mike Long, Denny Brauer, all talking about this subject and explaining it in detail, you watch the videos I have up, you talk to him in person in my forums as he is there every day, and you read the 45 articles and interviews that I have explaining it. That is how you do it because honestly, I am tired of telling you all as most of you here in Canada either don't care or don't understand.

BOUNTY FISHING DOES NOT ACCEPT MY STATES FOR COMPETITION. UNDERSTAND? I HAVE ASKED SEVERAL TIMES. I LIVE IN DELAWARE NOW. I live at the very bottom of the state on the Maryland border. It is 2 1/2 hours away from me on a good day to the Pennsylvania border and that is outside Philadelphia not where you would fish. I am not going to argue with you take a look at my site and look at my fish including the one that is just a few ounces off the state record. If you can catch one that is 4 ounces short of the Canadian record get back to me. And the girl pics as you call them are a major sponsor, "BASS FURY GEAR", that is one of the models who wear the gear, Nicole Ochoa, there are others, I guess your brain froze up there huh? You mean 5 largemouth total weight like I won the Big Bass World Championship with in 1996, 97, 98, 99, and 2001?? That kind of weight.?
