New World Record Striped Bass Pending

It's yet to be certified by the International Game Fish Association (IGFA) but it looks like the striped bass record has been broken by an unofficial 81.8 lb giant caught by Greg Myerson off the coast of Westbrook, Connecticut.  The huge striper was fooled by a live eel drifted just off the bottom near a submerged boulder by the Outer Southwest Reef off Connecticut's coast.

Not a neophyte striper fisherman, Myerson has several 50 lb plus to his credit along with a 71 lb monster he caught and released several years ago and last year he won On the Water magazine’s Striper Cup with a 68.75 lb giant.

The best report, including pictures, I've come across can be found on Field & Streams website: Exclusive Photos: New Pending World Record Striped Bass!
