Default New world record Weakfish - 19lb 12oz

Way to go Richie !!! You da MAN

Cut n paste from the ShoreCatch guide page:
RICH SWISSTACK Guides Dave Alu to Potential IGFA All-Tackle and NY State Weakfish Record!!!

May 7th, 2008 Thats right folks!!! Shore Catch Guide Rich “SWISS” Swisstack guided client Dave Alu to this 19 pound 12 ounce MONSTER last night. Here is SWISS’s report. More pics to come!!


Here’s the pic’s of that giant Weakfish Dave Alu caught last night while I was guiding him from the beach. We had about 6 bass three over 40 inches, and then in the wee hours of the morning this monster ate Dave’s Chunk. I couldn’t believe my eye’s when he slid it on the beach. We both thought that it was a nice bass until I grabbed it in the surf. The fish weighed 19 lbs. 12 ozs. at the Tackle Box 4 hours later. My Evalution lip gripper weighed the fish at over 19 lbs. so I knew we had something special. As I finding out it may be more special then we think. I have to do some further research, it is right now a pending World Record, not only the NY state record. I send you more as I find out more!
Capt. “SWISS”

my kudo;s go out to swiss for getting him onto the fish and although i see no report of where it was caught i commend him on his secrecy as well. that is what makes a good guide his bread and butter. if you want fish like that you need to be with people who can put you in a position to make a catch as nice. i can;t wait to get one on the longwand. wtg fellas.

He caught it in NY but weighed it in at the Tackle Box? Perhaps a different store than the one I am thinking of in Jersey.

Either way, NICE FISH!

Also weighed it at Michaels to get the needed NY weigh slip.

Tackle Box in Hazlet is Swiss's home shop so of course he had it weighed there as well.
