A good friend just had the good fortune to log yet another IGFA record...
RI/CT
8# test
57# MobyStriper
Congrats Emme

The moral of the story...
BIG fish in the RI/CT area!
Another pal has done very well from the beach at first light...
Multiple keepers on the phly...
Ces les bon temps rollet!

Pete,

Any more details you can share? I assume it was a pretty recent event since it has not been reflected in the IGFA records.

So maybe using an 8 pound tippet on NM isn't such a bad idea after all.

It opened the eyes of the sleepy boyz at the breachway bait/tackle shop to say the least...and was caught by a gal (I think she already has the 6# record as well, to name just a few)...
An amazed hush fell over the crowd as the scale stopped at 57lb9oz...
I won't spill the beans but...
Live-lined on bunker from a boat in a likely/proven classified area...
I'm tyin' up some more DualTubeHerringPhlyz as we speak...

Target BIG fish on a specific line and, with alot of planning/luck and, after jumping through some hoops...it goes in the book...
They have used this formula for IGFA success in the Keys and Golfito...

I mentioned this to encourage South Country/WatchHill surf assaults...
Better bring the 10wt and check your knotts/leaders/drag!

Not any less of a feat but I thought it was a fly caught fish from your original post. :tsk_tsk: A little dissapointed but still impressed. :smile:

You should listen to the man Sean! He just gave you some GOOD advice!

You shoulda seen the ones under the bridge when I was snorkling the other day. Not of the class mentioned above, but more than enough to make your weekend! :wink:

Now's the time! If you pull into the parking lot late at night and see my green wagon sitting empty, get your rod and go look for me!
[Hint] Don't look for me out at the tip.
BTW WH was dead Sunday night but all that mullet is gonna get the bigger bass very excited soon.
