WORLD RECORDS: world's biggest largemounth bass ever caught



Robert Crupi’s first IGFA world record largemouth; a fish of 21 lb caught from the renowned Castaic Lake in Southern California on March 9, 1990.

Crupi fished the same spot in the lake for 5 days prior to landing this fish, which he coerced with a live crayfish he was fishing in 40 ft. of water

At the time, this was the third heaviest largemouth ever recorded by the IGFA.



Raymond Easley caught his 21 lb 3 oz largemouth on March 4, 1980, it was the largest bass anyone had recorded since George Perry’s monster in 1932.

He caught it at Lake Casitas, California. While demonstrating how to properly fish a live crawfish in the relatively deep water, Easley’s bait got crushed and he came tight. After a quick fight, Easley had the fish weighed in on a certified scale not far from the lake.

At the time of the catch, Easley’s fish was the second heaviest largemouth ever recorded.


The world record bass cauhgt by George Perry has held this prestigious title for nearly 83 years, since he pulled his massive 22 lb 4 oz fish from Montgomery Lake, Georgia on 1932.

Perry, decided to go fishing; casting a Creek Chub Fintail Shiner from the boat.

He hooked it and when finally boated the fish, it was bigger than anything he ohad ever seen. Later that day, the fish was officially weighed in at 22 lb 4 oz, and history was made.
 

On July 2, 2009 a Japanese angler, Manabu Kurita, pulled his own 22 lb 4 oz largemouth from Lake Biwa in central Japan, after it ate a live bluegill that he had on for bait.

After all, landing a fish that millions of anglers had pursued for nearly a century is not something taken lightly. As such, every detail of the catch and its submittal was done under a microscope. After months of rigorously reviewing the application, the IGFA granted Manabu Kurita his share of the “holy grail” – a tie for the coveted All-Tackle largemouth bass world record with George Perry.

FLORIDA: caught a giant size warsaw grouper of 270 lb


The past weekend an incredibly lucky angler named Scott Gettle, caught a monster size warsaw grouper.

He he went out with Captain Tom Boyll of Sarasota Offshore and landed a fish of over 270 pound.

Tom, Scott, and few friends went offshore fishing well over 100 miles off of the coast, and while out in more than 500 feet of water, Scott hooked into a monster grouper.

Scott was able to legally keep this grouper, it is because this is a Warsaw Grouper (not a Goliath Grouper), and the legal limit in Florida allows you to keep only one Warsaw Grouper per day.

THAITI: caught an huge 1,474 pound blue marlin


Off Pueu coasts, in Tahiti was caught a giant 1,474 lbs - 670 kilo blue marlin by "Tetuaura Ti-paon".

This is technically a "commercial" caught fish, but any way is a great catch because in Tahiti that is usually a buoy with a line off a very small boat.

This is one of the biggest marlin ever caught in the world.

US: caught a world record size seatrout


Fishing off  Melbourne area,  in Florida angler Luke Ledbetter has reeled in a massive spotted seatrout that’s likely to recognized as a new world record.

 Luke  was fishing with spinning gear in the Indian River Flat area with Capt. Peter Deeks of "Native Sons Fishing Guides" (http://www.nativesonsfishing.com)

Capt. Deeks, kept the fish out of the water just long enough for measurements and photos and then released the fish into the sea.

He did not weigh it, but estimates the trout weighed about 14 pounds.

The seatrout taped out at 34.2 inches, or 87 centimeters. The IGFA's (International Game Fish Association- www.igfa.org) world record for length currently stands at 79 centimeters.

Pending approval, Ledbetter's seatrout will be recognized by the IGFA's new All-Tackle Length record program, which awards catches based on length rather than weight.

The curent IGFA "All-Tackle Record" for a spotted seatrout that was killed and weighed stands at 17 pounds, 7 ounces. That fish was caught off Ft. Pierce, Florida, back in 1995.
