New state record striper

Recommended Posts

Don't expect I'll ever catch a big striper because I don't fish with tackle heavy enough to land, or even turn, one.

I think I had ahold of a striper about this time last year at the Pothole. I was casting a Roostertail for white bass when I hooked onto something that felt like my lure had snagged the back bumper of a pickup truck that was driving away at about 20 mph! In short order, my reel was empty of line and the 6 lb. test mono broke off where it was tied to the spool. That was a real exciting 15 seconds or so, anyway.

You know how hard a 3-lb. white bass fights? I bet that stays in proportion and a 60-lb. striped bass would be 20 times as strong! :o
