  • 9.87 lbs (3-26)

    Got to the lake early and it was cold and very windy. Started out in 35 degree + 20 MPH NNW wind. Not fun cutting across the lake and decided to bass fish some protected rip rap next to deep water. Threw a 5-7' running CB on 6 lb test. After about 10 minutes I get slammed.......set the hook and the fish just about takes the rod away from me. It heads to 20-25' of water like a freight train. I cannot budge it. It keeps taking line and is bull dogging me. Pulls me out into the wind and it is all I can do to not get spooled. After 20 minutes of slowing making up ground, it rolls on top 10 feet from the boat......it's a beast. Finally get it into the net and I am literally shaking. What a belly in that big striper net!

    Thinking it is around 10 lbs, I head right to Highpoint Marina to measure and weigh it. 24.5" and 9.87 lbs
