IGFA to Announce World Record Bass Decision
This afternoon at 1:30 p.m. ET IGFA will release its decision on what may be the most significant record application in recent history.
On July 2, 2009 bass enthusiast, Manabu Kurita landed a 22 lb 4 oz largemouth bass from Japan's Lake Biwa. This catch is eligible to tie the nearly 78 year old All-Tackle record caught in 1932 by George Perry.
Over the last five months, IGFA has been engaged in collecting a considerable amount of information and testimony from the angler, fisheries authorities and representatives from their sister organization, the Japan Game Fish Association.
Today at 1:30 p.m. ET, IGFA will announce its decision. Check back this afternoon to see their final verdict.
