The record was challenged back in September by a Japanese fisher who caught a 22 pound, 4 ounce largemouth bass. George Perry was the initial record holder, also with a largemouth bass of 22 pounds, 4 ounces.
In 2006, Mac Weakley, caught a largemouth on Dixon Lake in southern California that weighed out at 25.1 pounds on a hand-held digital scale, which would shatter the 22¼-pound largemouth bass taken in 1932 at Georgia’s Montgomery Lake by George Washington Perry. But it wasn’t considered a world record because it was unofficially weighed, and ultimately because he let it go.
More recently, Japan’s Manabu Kurita, caught a 22-pound, 4-ounce largemouth. The IGFA (International Game Fish Association) is in the process of reviewing the details and hopes to announce a decision soon.
