Default Rhode Island 77.4 lb Striper

Peter Vican, who in 2009 caught a 76-pound, 14-ounce striped bass to set the Rhode Island state record for largest striper, has bested his old mark with a monster 77-pound, 4-ounce fish taken on Sunday, June 19. The fish was caught on a live eel fished off Block Island at 3:30 a.m. The fish is the second largest striper ever taken on rod and reel, and was 1.4 pounds shy of the existing world-record fish taken by Albert McReynolds in 1982. In a phone conversation with BoatingLocal, Vican told us that he plans to have a skin-mount made of the fish.

That's a pig of a fish, good for him. The guy must be a hell of a fisherman to be able to catch two fish over 70lbs within a couple of years of each other.
