Default 70 Pounder caught this week

Rumors rampant. Orient point - Weighed 78.9 but got eaten by racoons.



Likely truth is that it weighed in at 71 pounds.
Pictures to follow. The pic will run in this weeks edition or Noreastern Mag.

Several large fish taken in the mid atlantic area over the weekend. A 55 from the surf - 50s -60s and the aformentioned 70.

This 70.65 Pound Striped bass was taken Friday night by angler Michael Columbus of Riverhead NY while he was fishing aboard a charter boat named the Fishy Business.

Wow! That's what I call a Monster!

I've been fishing in the Jamaica Bay area by the far Rockaways and hoping to hook on my first striper. Any suggestions? Tides, time (day of night), or bait of choice and location?

Thanks,

I'll try and scan the photo that ran in Newsday. Can't vouch for the quality of the scan! Just over 70lbs.
It's a beast!
