Fishermen rescued big striped bass trapped in small lake

Postby WB Staff » Sat Feb 24, 2018 4:55 am

A group of fishermen were able to rescue several striped bass that somehow became trapped in a landlocked lake.

Little Silver Lake in Point Pleasant Beach is currently undergoing dredging. The fishermen say that they did not know how the fish got there, just that they were going to save them.

“I saw them all lined up just setting next to each other…30-40 inch fish and I was like, ‘These are big fish,’” said fisherman Chris Schlegel.

“You’d see stuff flopping around in the water and when it got down to where it looked like maybe a foot of water or so, we thought we should probably do something at least to try to get out there to see if we can save something,” said Dave Miles.

Fisherman Tyler Spader said that he was able to see some of their dorsal fins pop out of the water.
