Greg Myerson

81 Pound Striper

The new world record striped bass was caught on the night of August 4, 2011 in Connecticut waters. The striper was boated by Greg Myerson and weighed in at 81.88 pounds, which edges out the previous record of 78.8 pounds caught in 1982.

Myerson caught his huge striper drifting a live eel near a submerged boulder, near the Outer Southwest Reef off the coast of Westbrook, Connecticut. His striper measured 54 inches in length.

Greg Myerson said he's sorry to take the striped bass world-record from Atlantic City, but he is happy to have it in Westbrook, Connecticut.

Black Friday Boats

Black Friday Boats at IBSP

On Thanksgiving Day, 2011 the, striper bite was on in the waters around Island Beach State Park, NJ. Headboats that usually stay out until 2.00 PM came in at 10:AM, as everyone had caught their limit. The word soon got out. The next day, Black Friday, the ladies all went shopping. The men went fishing. The waters around IBSP were super crowded with boats.
