    Striped Bass Record

    An Alabama resident has reeled in a 70-pound striped bass that shattered a 54-year-old state record and could land the angler in the book of world records for the heaviest striper ever caught in a landlocked fishery.

    Jeez. Hope he returned it live, but I doubt it. Big fish are prime breeders

    Landlocked fishery.
    Shooting fish in a barrel?
    Always struck me that fishing is a man trying to outwit a fish.
    This is one of those rare occations when he did.

    It was in a real lake. He was a tricky bugger. I released him. I was 12.

    ^ Maybe now you're a bit older you might be able to outwit a big fish.
    I just never "got" fishing.
    And I work at sea.

    I love fishing but why on earth would you want to kill a fish that has lived as long as that one obviously has, by the way even if it was released it would die from the trauma of it being held like that.
