Toward the end of January, a Brazilian angler, caught and released the potential peacock bass world record aboard the Tayacu houseboat in the jungles of Brazil. The angler was fishing on the Rio Ariraha when he landed a monster 28.9lbs peacock bass which measured 1.08meters and had a width of 27cms. The peacock was released unharmed.
As many know, Bill Gassmann, also broke the world record peacock bass towards of the end of Janaury and is waiting verification by IGFA on the record. The peacock was kept and all proper paperwork was filed with IGFA.
IGFA is has very strict rules one needs to follow to submit potential world records. For a list of rules go to http://www.igfa.org/
