WORLD RECORD FISH
ANGLER: Rod Bates
LOCATION: Lake Guri / Venezuela
SPECIES: Peacock Bass
ROD & REEL: Bass Pro Shop Johnny Morris Signature Series 6/6 MH Rod and 2500 Series Reel

These fish were caught while fishing with Roy's Fishing Outfitters in October of 2006. During a 3 day fishing trip I caught and released World Record fish in the 6#, 10#, 14#, and 20# Line Class. I had a just miss World Record in the 17# Line Class as well.
I highly recommend Richard Yepez and Roys Fishing Outfitters.
