West Branch Striper

Discussion in 'Northeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by RONOT1, Jul 2, 2004.

  1. Has anyone heard of a guy catching a possible new state record striper one or two nights ago by the Rockspring road bridge. Someone told me it was around 41 lbs., not sure how long.

    Yeah I heard someone talking today at work, but he was saying he heard it was caught at Mosquito, but I was thinking that that didn't sound right but West Branch is a whole lot more believable.
     

  3. The guy at West Branch bait shop confirmed a 40 something pound striper came out of the lake last week when I was in there Sunday getting bait.

    back in the 70's my uncle held the state record striper and he caught it at west branch on my dad's bass boat, he stripped a whole spool of 8lb test on a old Mitchell 310 then they chased it with the boat!!! it was 36 inches long and a little over 25 lbs.

    by the way record didnt last all that long
