IGFA World Record Largemouth Bass Announcement - It's a Tie!

Congratulations Manuba Kurita!  The monster bass he caught in July in Japan was certified by the IGFA as a tie to the current world record.  He's not the solo record holder but he still put his name in the record books.  I will think of this bass as the true world record as I am a little skeptical of George Perry's legendary bass.  It took them six months to certify the catch but they did quite a bit to ensure that this catch was legit.  He took a polygraph and passed.  They also did genetic samples to make sure this bass wasn't a triploid or some other hybrid bass.  You can read the entire press release on their website.
