Could it be?
Tell me it isn’t so Bill Gassmann. Gassmann’s Monster Peacock, caught in February of 2010, was certified a few months ago at 28 pounds as a new world record by the IGFA.
Last week yet another Monster Peacock was landed and it appears that Glassmann’s record is in jeopardy and may fall quickly.
Information is sketchy at this point but it appears that yet another new potential world record Peacock Bass has been landed. We are advised that the necessary papers are being filed with the IGFA. The fish was reported to have been caught in the middle Rio Negro region Amazonas, Brazil and weighed in at 29.40 pounds! More to come as information becomes available.
