Cool. Picture. If it's properly documented it would def. be a world record, as shown in previous threads on this issue. Please post more details and what the fight was like, bait etc. I always knew the big'uns were out there. I have seen with my own eyes an at least 50# striper swimming in knee deep water in a small outflow. I kid you not. If I can see a fish that size in small water, why shouldn't there be one twice that size in the depths of the ocean, foraging on lobsters and other sources of good protein.

 

But in the end, we always have to see the actual results on paper, in print, in photos. So please, bring forward some documentation that lends credence to the catch. You always hear classic "big fish" stories which turn out to be about halfway true. Still, a 43.5lbs striper is a notable event, and worth broadcasting.

 

But its not worth killing that fish. The meat is no good, and it would be better put to use making more nad more striper babies than gracing the table of a tackle shop. Just a thought on conservation in an era of rampant disconservation due to the economy and the internet.
