Striped Bass Release Record
Angler Maureen Klause of Ocean City, New Jersey, landed a striped bass (Morone saxatilis) while fishing the Delaware Bay, with Capt. Ricky Wheeler on December 4, 2011. Klause was fishing the bottom with a bunker (menhaden) head when the 108 cm striper hit. After a 12-minute fight, Klause and Capt. Ricky boated the potential All-Tackle record length striped bass for the necessary photos and measurements before releasing it alive. The current IGFA record is 89 cm.
