Big fish, but the WORLD RECORD belongs to Greg Myerson, who lives in CT - 81.8 lbs. This an OLD story about that, but I believe it has been VERIFIED.

Westbrook, Conn. (WTNH) - A striped bass that could break the world record was caught in the waters of the Long Island Sound in Westbrook.

According to the Jack's Bait and Tackle in Westbrook, the striper caught by Greg Myerson of North Branford weighed in at 81.88 pounds. It has not yet been certified by the International Game Fish Association.

Field & Stream spoke with Myerson about the catch and he told them he was using drifting eels on Southwest Reef around 8am on August 4th when the monster hit his line. He kept the fish on ice until he brought it to Jack's the next morning to be weighed.
