The record striper... 64 Pounds!

Postby WB Staff » Sun Jun 30, 2019 11:04 am



46 years ago on this day, angler Asie Espenak caught this 29.03 kg (64 lb) striped bass to set the women’s 24 kg (50 lb) line class world record that has stood since 1971. Espenak caught her world record striper while fishing out of Sea Bright, New Jersey, USA, and needed 30 minutes to subdue the fish after it ate the menhaden (bunker) she was using for bait. And not only is Espenak’s striper a world record, it is also the second heaviest striper ever recorded by a female angler with the IGFA.
