James Bramlett of Dora, Ala. may hold not only the Alabama state record but also the world record for striped bass after a day of fishing on the Black Warrior River this weekend. Bramlett, a retired iron worker, was fishing near the Gorgas Steam Plant with 10-inch shad for bait when the big fish hit. after a 25-minute struggle, the angler landed what could be a record-shattering striper of epic proportions. If the70-pound striper is certified as a state record, it will best a 54-year mark by more than 15 pounds. It can take weeks to be certified as a state record and months to be certified as a world record by the IGFA. There have been bigger stripers caught, but not on land-locked fisheries. So it will be interesting to see if the IGFA certifies it as the Land-locked striped bass record.

We knew the fishing in the Warrior River could be good for other species, but many probably had no idea that its waters were inhabited by mamoth stripers like this one. For more information on the catch, visit AONMagazine.com.
