World-record bass – maybe – pulled from Lake Dixon

March 20, 2006

SAN DIEGO – Mac Weakley of Carlsbad caught what could be the world-record largemouth bass early Monday at Dixon Lake in Escondido.
The bass weighed 25 pounds, 1 ounce on a hand-held scale, which – if approved – would shatter the world record, the 22-pound, 4-ounce bass caught by George W. Perry at Montgomery Lake in Georgia in 1932.

The catch will have to be approved by the International Game Fish Association.

That may be a problem, however, because Weakley said he foul-hooked the fish – meaning the hook lodged below the dorsal fin on the fish's side, not in the fish's mouth.

Weakley was fishing with his longtime friends Mike Winn and Jed Dickerson. Dickerson caught a 21-pound, 11-ounce bass at the same lake in 2003.

The men believe this is the same fish that Dickerson caught almost three years ago, and which was also caught by another fisherman as a 20-pounder in 2001. They said the fish has the same identifying black dot under its right gill plate.

Weakley released the fish after taking pictures and videos of the weigh-in. But he did not take measurements of the fish, which also may be a problem when it comes to the game fish association approving it as a record catch.

Damn ... the guy had his wife put a hook in her mouth and he took a picture.

I would have to say that would be some good eatin. I would never have thrown back good eatin bass like that.

Why is this pussy struggling to hold 25lbs up ? Get in the gym fat boy!

If his friend who was fishing with him on this day caught the same fish 3 yrs ago and had it recorded, how come that same friend didn't tell this guy how to record catching the fish according to the rules ? Either he is a prick friend or got completely luck 3 yrs ago.

i wonder if the fish that are caught and released go back to their buddies with stories
the fish is like "i'm tellin' yall, i was abducted by aliens" other fish is like "whatever dude, you were just smokin' way too much crack" or "you're full of shit dude"

Instead of catch and release I use the catch and eat method. I see no sense in hunting ot fishing if you are not going to eat it.

You know when they have a fishing show on TV? They catch the fish and then let it go. They don't want to eat the fish, they just want to make it late for something.
