Word is out that Capt. Blaine Anderson (Anderson Guide Services), who fishes the waters of eastern Long Island Sound and the Connecticut River, has caught a huge striped bass estimated at close to 75 pounds.
The fish was taken on a live scup (porgy) on Wednesday, May 23. It measured 57” long, with a girth of 32 ”, which according to the IGFA’s measurement formula puts the fish at 74 3/4 pounds. Regardless of the exact weight, the fish is surely the largest striped bass captured on video. After measuring the fish, Anderson attempted to release the fish, but was unsuccessful.
