Nice fish.....

I hope he released it considering the state of Wild Striped Bass are in. 

Pretty cool that it looks like she hit  what looks like a pencil. 

Guessing from the photo that fish didn't make it.....dorsal fin is down.  

Once again....nice fish.

Congrats to Bobby.  When I saw the video of this fish and was like man I would love catch one that size....then I thought could I even get it on my kayak.

Great fish, but how can you accurately weigh that fish from a boga in a kayak?  Some type of cradle setup?  Cant see standing in the yak to hoist vertically and certainly hope that was not done fron a fish handling/mortality standpoint.

Here is what Bobby said when I asked:

"we weighed it in with my boga grip 2 guys holden the yak while I stood with the fish"

Bogas are very accurate, this might be the first 50 I've seen caught in NJ in March on a plug. Very unusual, although with bunker pouring into the bay its entirely realistic. Congrats on a great fish.

Not doubting the accuracy of a boga.  Catching that fish in an impressive feat, standing up to weigh it in a kayak is also challenging.  Knew there was some story behind it.  Lucky he was with friends.  Thanks Ksong.
