Pending world record largemouth

I got some fuzzy details about a potential world record largemouth bass that was recently caught in California. The unofficial weight was 22 pounds, eight ounces. This would break the long standing record of 22 pounds, four ounces held by George Perry of Georgia.

I'd like to really confirm this. Can anyone out there provide additional details or a link to something concrete regarding this? Apparently there were two witnesses and it was weighed on a certified scale, but you know how these things are....I'd like to know if this information is valid or is six degrees of separation from a rumor that's continuing to morph.

Thanks, and if it's genuine, congrats to the new record holder.
