Finally broke 20!!

Post by Jay Garrell » July 18th, 2014, 12:41 pm

Finally after striper fishing atleast once a week for over a year I broke the 20 lb mark. Yeah yeah I'm sure you have caught bigger but this is my biggest to date and it was BAD ASS!!! We didnt have a scale but it was almost exactly the length of the top of a 50 gal SBTII tank 39-40" and looks to be a healthy fish guessing around 27lbs.
