Congrats Eric on an amazing fish. Was there myself for about 2 hours fishing with the wife on my break between school bus runs. What a fish, hats off to you!

You will hit the peak of nervousness during the first and second weeks of May for many years hopefully. I sure did. Great story, you definitely got lucky as those big fish have a habit of getting away for one reason or another. I can't imagine having the line wrapped around the prop with such a large fish. Amazing that it was caught on a suspended bloodworm, but then again people also thought it was amazing that I caught mine on a lure, so it just goes to show that big fish can be caught using tactics other than just live herring or chunk.

Congrats on the fish, Eric, and welcome to the board!

Hey Eric. Good job man. I'm curious what kind of line you were using. I saw you said 20 lb braid. Are you talking 20 lb diameter or 20 pound test. Did she put up a huge fight or was she lazy. I've caught a couple over 40 pounds that were sort of sluggish but the sheer weight makes it a fight. And thank God it was rising tide. The way the tides been ripping out May have made things damn near impossible. Real nice fish.

It was 20lb test Power Pro. She fought real hard for 10-15 minutes and surfaced a few times before she pretty much gave up. That was the only reason I could bring it over the bow. I just read the updated River Basin report. I'm a little surprised that a bait shop which has created a living by being the eyes and ears of the Hudson pretty much blew off a story of a record breaking Striper because the angler wasn't in their contest.

Awesome. Sometimes Tom is a little slow on updating his site. Hopefully he'll mention it today. Friday seems to be his posting day.

He did that with mine, too. While everybody else in the Northeast was scrambling for pictures and the story, he didn't care because I wasn't in their contest. Has the press contacted you yet?

Thanks. Yeah I dropped it off Wednesday for a skin mount. Wish I would have taken more pics. Ian, someone from the Daily News contacted me and did a small write up in that and in the Register Star.

If you don't mind, what's it cost to have it mounted?
I think if I caught a record fish I too would have it mounted.

Farewell to the official state record. I was surprised to hear the soon to be official record was 5lbs. larger. Congrats to both of you.

Wow that's awesome!



That's where and how I usually fish (Newburgh bay/bloodworms)...damn it could have been me! Amazing to think there are things that big down there. And great to see the new record holder is from Orange County (I'm in Warwick)! My 13 year old son caught his first striper on Saturday...maybe 7 pounds, he said it felt like he was gonna get pulled off the boat. I think your fish actually could have...

Oh, and I gotta agree with DocZ in an earlier post...not sure how you can consider it "spot burning" when you are talking about a place like Newburgh bay. I was out Sunday, there were at least 75 boats floating around out there...not exactly a secret spot.
