BASS EUROPEAN (Dicentrarchus labrax)

French angler Guillaume Fourrier of Belleville-Sur-Mer, France was fishing off Dieppe, France with local guide Emile Couvrevr when he may have broken the 13 year old standing record for the men’s 2 kg (4 lb) line class for European bass (Dicentrarchus labrax). Fourrier needed 22 minutes to land the 6.16 kg (13 lb 9 oz) fish after it ate the Jackall Dart he was casting.

The European bass, known simply as the “bass” in Europe, is a warm and temperate water marine species that is relatively restricted to the European coast from England to northern Africa and the Mediterranean and Black Sea. It is generally found inshore near the surf zone and is somewhat tolerant of fresh water, like its close North American relative, the striped bass (Morone saxatilis).
