I still can't quite believe it. Not only is this my best striper, it's my biggest fish ever, period!

Fishing was almost a carbon copy of Saturday, except this time I had a helper. We caught several 1-4 lb whites, spots, hybrid on shad early about 15-20 ft down, then used the sonar to snag this monster from 35 ft down with a live bream.

It felt like I hooked a submarine. Took over 100 ft of line, and was pulling my boat as fast as the trolling motor on medium. The fish was released unharmed. I can't say the same for the smaller fish. :bounce:

That trip will be talked about for years to come. Congrats on your new pb. The big ones are showing up quite frequently.

What a great fish. I love to hear about catching a personal best monster and releasing it to fight another day. Congratulations!
