World Record Numbers

The Official "Guiness Book Of World Records" list 3103 as the most black bass caught in a single year. This record was established in 1993 (I believe) and is held by Dave Romeo who at that time lived on Long Island.

Pat X, correct me if I am wrong, but I believe most of those bass were caught in Kaelis Pond. ANY size bass counted.

Scully, the record number is 3001 bass taken in a 90 day period out of Kahlers pond in Brookhaven. Now, if you want to talk about the size......I believe less than 5% of those fish were keepers. A while back a LI club was presented with the stats.

Most guys, in fact, none of the guys I talk to take the record seriously. Dink tournament fish have the dubious title of Romeo.

Are you interested in a record? I know a place where you and I can go in and beat it in less than a months time....they will be mostly keepers too. 8 hrs a day, I guarantee us 400 to 500 fish.
I don't think that those numbers at that lake can be acheived these days though. There is a drop in the cover present at the lake....definatley Kahlers and its only 5 minutes from my house. There are some good fish in there now though. I fished with Robbie last year and took a 4 there on a prototype tube.

No doubt it was a business move. Don't get me wrong, I don't have anything bad to say about Dave. He did what worked for him at the time.

Last year he teamed up with a guy to try to start a tournament circuit here on LI......I don't know how it worked out though. I'm assuming it didn't because I haven't heard anything about it.
I'm willing to bet we could do it in a months time with 50% or more of the bass being legal. Definately opened some doors for him, good decision on Dave's part.
There is a plaque dedicated to the feat in Kahlers park...I'll have to check it out, I could swear it was 3001 fish.
