New Striper World Record

Post by silverking »

Friend in NC just sent me this. Don't know any details on tackle, bait or fight, but this is a truly impressive fish. A 50-pound striper is considered a lifetime catch. Too bad she's out of the gene pool, but can understand the motivation for boating.

Is there a nuclear plant near that bridge? ;-)

Grew up fishing the CBBT and Oregon Inlet for striper. No nuclear plant, just healthy runs of shad and a groceries that would make Costco look like a 7-eleven! My biggest was 50lbs, which is a baby compared to that monster!
