The rumor is this bass was recently caught out of Sugar. She supposedly weighed 20.9lbs. However big she is, she's clearly a monster. Can anyone confirm details on the beast? If true she would be the 4th largest bass in history, a new Mexico record, and the largest fish caught on this side of the pond in over 25 years.

The story I have heard is that it was caught on 8/22/2016 by a Mexican firefighter in a tournament. This is all 2nd and 3rd hand information though, so I have zero clue if it is valid at all. I was hoping someone on here might know more details. The fish is posted on the Facebook page of "Pescando Amigos e Historias." I tried to use the translation function to read through the comments, but was unable to find anything of substance. Maybe someone who speaks Spanish can check the page out and see if they can pick up on any details that might help validate the fish?

reading the translation from the comments looks like it is def a real story. now pics showing the scale and/or where it was weighed hasn't been shown yet per the comments. it was also taken home and eaten by the guy- which is well within his right to do so!!

jpurdue- thanks for posting the fb page name so I could look it up!

I'll believe it when NoWeighers or one of the other Sugar regulars confirm it.

I agree a healthy dose of skepticism is in order at this point. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

If you are looking for evidence I may be able to help. I can confirm, without a shadow of a doubt, I have caught many bass that have weighed between a 2oz giant and 2 lbs. This fish is much bigger than that. Oh, and I don't speak Spanish. Amazing fish no matter what size.

I was told by a guide that a 9.5 Kilo bass was caught but that some details were lacking. A have a friend from Monterrey who I'm waiting to get the details from. I have a feeling he will know.

Either way, WOW!
