World Record Bass Sale Update
Manabu hoists his World Record bass.David Swendseid, the assigned associate to organize offers regarding Manabu's mount, is the known product specialist for Jackall Lures and Toray fishing line in the US. Swendseid was responsible for helping Toray's fluorocarbon and braid hit notoriety among professional anglers. He is also the specialist responsible for helping Jackall Lures grow expeditiously in the US. "We are all part of a sobering and historical experience," Swendseid explains. "The gravity of what Manabu has accomplished cannot be readily assimilated. Trophy hunters specifically committed to chasing the world record have quietly pursued their dream, far from notoriety. In California, there have been as many as 20-30 very accomplished trophy anglers who hunt or have hunted the elusive world record. Several of them nearly broke the weight barrier, but the world record continued to stand for nearly 80 years. That's amazing!"
Mr. Kuroye, President of Blackwater International Inc., imports Toray fluorocarbon to North America. Manabu is not sponsored by Toray, but it was the line that he used to catch his two records. Mr. Kuroye believes, "It's no accident that Manabu has two fish records (a world record and all Japan record). Manabu may be the greatest trophy hunter in the world and I promise you he is not finished hunting. In Japan, he is known as the Maniac World Record Hunter and we wish him well".
Allison Perry, the grand-daughter of World Record Holder, George Perry, had this to say: "Though I can no longer say that the current World Record is a part of my family heritage and the history of my nation, my hope is that Manabu's fish will only add to the legend of the largemouth, and the compelling myth that the next record is out there somewhere in the world, waiting to lure us all."
