There was more talk about it before the IGFA announced it was a record which was a shame for the angler, he got ripped up pretty good by some people. After reading his story, this guy is dialed in on large bass, he has numerous catches of 50# and over and has earned the record with the time he puts in.Got approved a couple of months ago. Wasn't a lot of talk about it; not compared to all the talk that led up to it.
Kind of a shame that on the IGFA site they just list the records kind of "blah" like. Put a short story (just a few sentences) about the the angler that caught it, on what, time of day, boat/land, something.
Just a name, date, and weight. Boring. Put a pic of the angler's face at least. :huh:
