Alabama angler's monstrous striped bass is one for the record books

To all you Bass Fisherman! 414405An
Alabama resident has reeled in a 70-pound striped bass that shattered a
34-year-old state record and could land the angler in the book of world
records for the heaviest striper ever caught in a landlocked fishery.

James R. Bramlett, 65, reeled in the behemoth on the Black Warrior River on Feb. 28.

Bramlett told Joe Songer of AL.com
that he credits his wife, Janice, for urging him to go fishing. She was
scheduled to undergo a hospital procedure in a few days and would need
him to be around and take care of her.

The catch, weighed on a
certified scale, exceeds the previous record, set in 1959, by 15 pounds.
(Bramlett and his catch are pictured at right.)

"It's definitely uncommon," Heath Haley, a biologist for Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division , told Field & Stream . "This fish certainly, in my opinion, was an anomaly. It's a very fat, chunky fish.

"The
previous record being 55 pounds, the fact that it hasn't been broken
since the 1950s, it's just incredible that not only he broke it, but he
shattered it. You just don't see them that big that often."

The striper measured 45.5 inches long and boasted a girth of 37.75.

According to Songer, the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has already approved the catch as a state record. If approved by the International Game Fish Association it'll become a new world record (this process can take weeks or months).

The current IGFA record for landlocked stripers is a 67-pound, 8-ounce specimen landed in 1992 in Los Banos, California.

[Related: The biggest fish ever caught from a kayak.]

Bramlett
said he saw the huge fish roll on the surface, so he tossed a bait and
soon hooked up. The battle lasted 20 minutes and as soon as Bramlett
could secure the catch, he telephoned his wife to share the news about
the memorable catch--and, presumably, to thank her for persuading him to
spend the day fishing.
