State Striper Record Shattered in Alabama
James Bramlett reeled in a 70 lb, 47 inch long striped bass out of the Warrior River by the Gorgas Steam Plant on Thursday. He beat the previous Alabama record of 55 pounds.
He saw the fish bust the top and then he threw out a big shad. The fish soon took the shad. He fought the giant fish for about 20 to 25 minutes before finally landing it. He was using an Ugly Stick catfish rod with 30 lb test line.
