Bob Daly reports:

On Feb 9, 2010 angler Bill Gassmann of Des Moines, Iowa, caught a potential World Record Peacock Bass weighing in at 28lbs. The old record was 27lbs caught by Doc Lawson on Dec 4 1994.

Gassmann was fishing a clown colored Luhr Jensen Big Game Woodchopper slim in clown coloration and was fishing a tributary of the Upper Rio Negro in the Brazilian Amazon.

Gassmann's guide, Aldeni "Elvis" Fonseca immediately knew the significance of the catch and urged Gassmann to return to the Mothership.

The peacock measured 37 inches long with a girth of 25 inches and is pending certification by the IGFA.

Groups are forming now for 2010 fall season.
