It looks to me like that gaff was used just to hold up the striper for a picture. What would you use to land a giant striper that tiny 13” long gaff or a large landing net?

That fish is a beast and does look bigger than the current record. The fish is also a huge 59"long and could have very easily weighed more than the record fish if only it had eaten more !

thought it was illegal to use a gaff in VA?

 

Other Virginia restrictions: Gaffing striped bass or attempting to gaff striped bass is illegal in Virginia marine waters.
