Mr. Manabu Kurita with a 22 lb 4 oz largemouth bass taken from Japan’s Lake Biwa

Manabu Kurita of Aichi, Japan shows his July 2, 2009 record catch, a largemouth bass caught on Lake Biwa, Japan’s largest lake.

After nearly six months of waiting, he has now taken his place alongside another angler, as dual holders of the All-Tackle record for largemouth bass each weighing 22 lb 4 oz and caught 77 years apart.

Kurita’s fish tied the record of George Perry, who caught his bass on America’s Montgomery Lake on June 2, 1932.

Kurita used 25-pound test line and a live blue gill as bait.
