Hi Ami,
The world record largemouth bass is 22 lbs. 4 oz.
It was caught by George Perry in 1932.

The world record bass is 22 pounds 4 ounces. It was caught by George W. Perry on Montgomery Lake Georgia in 1932. The fish was weighed on a certified scale at the local general store for the Field and Stream contest. It was during the great depression and Perry won the contest. He then took the fish home and ate it.

The only other fisherman to come close to the world record was Bob Crupi. Crupi has two fish within ounces of the record, and has personally seen 'floaters' top 24 pounds. The largest bass ever weighed was a Florida monster in 1916 at Okee in Florida. The fish was stopping up a dredge and was pulled out by a game and fish officer accompanied by the famous Jack Lamb. They both agreed it was the biggest they had ever seen and weighed the fish on the officers scale. It topped 26 pounds. It is not given credit because no documentation existed of it, the only mention is in Jack Lambs 1927 book "The Black Bass". Commercialized bass fishing did not exist then so there was no reason whatsoever for the giant bass to be worth anything more than a good meal. They simply admired it, then let it go.
