Today we feature a couple of retro photos showing fishermen with world record Giant Sea Bass catches. It’s hard to imagine fish this big, but these are real, non-Photoshopped photos of world record size fish. The photo above shows John Perkins with his 428 lbs. catch in 1905.
This second image of a world record Giant Sea Bass shows a 384 lbs. fish caught by F.S. Schenck in 1900. I find these photos amazing.
And, just in case you’re wondering, the current world record for Giant Sea Bass is 563 lbs. 8 oz. – caught by J.D. McAdam Jr. near Anacapa Island, California on August 20, 1968.
