 Biggest Largemouth Bass-world record caught by Manabu Kurita

 Lake Biwa, Japan -- Japanese angler Manabu Kurita, 32, caught a 22lb 5oz, 29 inches (10.12 kilograms and 73.5 centimeters) largemouth Bass, on Lake Biwa in the Shiga Prefecture of Japan-setting the world record for the Biggest Largemouth Bass.

    This new world record for the Biggest Largemouth Bass is one ounce more than the previous world record caught by George Perry in 1932: a 22-pound, 4-ounce bass caught from Lake Montgomery in Georgia on June 2, 1932.

Mr. Kurita caught the fish using a Roman Made Mother which it's a big wake bait; he caught the bass on a 7-foot, 1-inch GLX G. Loomis worm & jig rod made by Deps, with a Shimano Antares DC7 baitcasting reel. Photos: courtesy ESPN/Bass

   Manabu Kurita is sponsored by Deps, a Japanese fishing tackle manufacturer.  

     The bass was caught in Lake Biwa in the Shiga Prefecture of Japan. The huge lake, spanning 259 square miles, serves as a water supply for the cities of Kyoto and Otsu. It's home to trout, bass and a pearl industry. It is Japan's largest lake and has been stocked with Florida Strain largemouth bass.  

   Lake Biwa shocked the bass world a couple years ago by producing a bass that was well over 18 pounds (The Japan record was caught at Lake Ikehara, and weighted over 19 pounds.).

   A 25 1/2 lb. bass was caught as by catch in a fisherman's net earlier this year, so many thought it would be just a matter of time before a record size fish was taken from Japan's largest (over 70 miles long) natural lake.

   Japanese officials consider largemouths a non-native, invasive species and are trying to get them out of the lake. A 25-pounder reportedly was netted there, and restaurants nearby serve bass on their menus.

  The Lake Biwa fish is dead and frozen right now.
