Biggest Largemouth Bass caught by Japanese Angler

A JAPANESE man was credited on Friday with reeling in the biggest largemouth bass, tying a record that has been in American hands for the past 77 years for the freshwater fish popular among anglers.

The International Game Fish Association (IGFA) confirmed that Manabu Kurita of Aichi, Japan tied US angler George Perry to hold the All-Tackle record for largemouth bass – each weighing 10.12kg.
