05-25-10. Behold the NEW state record for striped bass in Indiana. Captured on Cecil M. Harden Reservoir by Jon VanHook from Rockville, IN aboard ISBA member Shay Vandiviers boat, Comp-Time II.


Fish weighed in at 39.08lbs at 42 1/4 in long, 30 inch girth. This was Jon's first time at striper fishing too!




Congrats Jon... "that's INCREDIBLE'

Absolutely!

Funny too as I was out several days prior and boated a prespawn male that was shy 2 1/2lbs of the record. Told my crew all its going to take is a female from this stock and its over.



Next thing I know Shay hooked into that female a couple days later. The rest is history

It couldn't of happened to a nicer guy.

an old man who can barely cast caught a 40" fish the other night and it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. had to give the rod to a friend to finish up the fight but, he took home a nice dinner for himself. these are the gents i am all for seeing get into fish. and on a separate note... ya lost a few pounds i see mark,,,
