KenHut

It was 49 inches long and a girth of 33 inches weighing 57.9 pounds
Its has been registered here in Canada but international Game and sport fishing in florida wouldn't take it in there records because it wasnt weighed in the U.S.
Christian was using a surf rod with 20 pound test and a magnum rapala.

This Record striper was caught in the Bras D'or lakes in Cape Breton Island
Broke the old record of 54 pounds. Ken is on the left and Christian is on the right.

I may be mistaken but I believe the New Brunswick Museum has a 63 pound Striped Bass caught at the Reversing Falls Saint John.

Was the Cape Breton striper released, hope so.

Re: New Canadadian Record Striper

It took about 15 minutes to land ..
Its being mounted as we speak and is not only the canadian record but the world junior striper record my cousin is only 16 .
I think you'd have to be Gay to release a World Record fish..

True enough D but the official recognized record is the above pending record.

Canada Striped Bass
"A striped bass weighing 28.6 kg (62.9 lb) was caught near Reversing Falls in the Saint John River, New Brunswick, in 1979".
"The record Canadian striped bass was caught in Nova Scotia in 1994. It weighted 54.06 lb."

If a fish weighing 62.9 lb was caught in 1979 in Saint John, how can a fish weighing 54.06 lb in 1994 be the Canadian record... Is Saint John not part of Canada

If the fish wasnt caught by rod and reel and wasnt officially weighed its not a record.
They also report a fish was caught weighing 189 pounds in North carolina. Is that not the World record?

Read the page and email them Maybe they can tell you exactly why.

Canada Striped Bass

By the way that 58 pound fish is now officially recognized as world junior record by the IGFA. They received the news in late October. Christian is 16 years old.
