A new potential world record striped bass was caught last night from a boat off the Connecticut coast on a live eel. This fish was supposedly caught by Al Stromski and submitted into the Striper Cup. The fish was weighed in at Shoreline Bait and Tackle in Westbrook CT.
If the IGFA certifies this fish as the new world record it could break the previous record by over 3 lbs which was set back in 1982.
On the Water magazine is heading there now to confirm these rumors…
