DANIA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- 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.

actually, the fish was one ounce heavier than perry's but to actually break the record, it must be 2 ounces heavier than the record. he will share the record with perry. he also said in an article I read that there are fish bigger than that one in the lake and estimates he has seen fish close to 30 pounds/
