Official World Record Largemouth Bass – George Perry 22.4 lb

The world record largemouth bass was caught by George Perry in Montgomery Lake in Georgia in 1932. The world record bass was 22 pounds and 4 ounces. That world record has held up for 8 decades! Some people were skeptical of this world record because no pictures had been found, but in 2006 relatives of George Perry produced pictures of the world record fish. Below is a photo of George holding his record largemouth bass.
