Freshwater Striped Bass World Record

 World Record Freshwater Striped Bass

On February 28th, 2013 James R. Bramlett (on the left) caught this 69 pound 9 ounce landlocked striped bass. On May 13, 2013 his catch was certified by the IGFA, and became the new world record freshwater striped bass.

This bass establishes a new Alabama state record, the previous record being 55 pounds set in 1959.

James caught his huge striper in the Upper Blackhead Reservoir, which is an impoundment of the Black Warrior River in north-central Alabama. The fish was 45.5 inches long and had a girth of 37.75 inches. He caught it on a 10 inch gizzard shad.

Fat Striped Bass

Normally a striper of 45.5 inches in length would weigh between 35 and 45 pounds. Bramlett's fat striper weighed 69 pounds 9 ounces.
