1. Here's the big one for the day! My new PB striped bass closing in on 48" legit! estimated at almost 45lbs judging by the look on my face haha. Thought ...more for sure we were going to get a 50 this day, but it didn't happen... I know most guys would've just estimated this fish to 50" and lied about it, but bs fish sizes is just a pet peve of mine i guess. Legit measurement with pic submitted to the state. all fish released except for one of the smaller ones. what a ridiculously awesome day! And just for the record, we went back the next day to try again and they were no where to be found haha. feels good to be in the right place at the right time every once in a while!
