In 1984, Dave Romeo caught 3,001 largemouth bass in 77 days of fishing. This established a new Guinness World Record for the most bass caught in a season, and remains unbroken to this day.
Dave was fishing on Long Island, NY and several places in Florida when he established this record. The record was authenticated by the NY State Department of Environmental Conservation (by verifying Romeo’s 13 detailed fishing diaries, local fishing television video coverage, and 18 credible witnesses).
In addition, between 1982 and 2007 Dave Romeo caught, recorded, released more than 25,000 black bass in 25 years—averaging over 1,000 bass per year every year for a quarter of a century!
