42 pound bass!!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by baba, Mar 6, 2008.

  1. I left VA beach and caught this beastly striped bass off of the upper tip of the Outer Banks. 42 lb citation striper! 4 of us caught our limit by 11AM and they were all HUGE. For those not familiar with this species, and it's typical size, this is a big fish.:hyper:

    Nice! :D
  5. Yeah, I know, I almost posted it in the Basses forum.:D

    And in case it isn't abundantly clear, I'm bragging. This is something we fisherman do. Except in a couple years this fish will magically grow to 52 lbs.:)

    My Sadowsky weighs more then my biggest Bass (a 7 pound smallmouth) and my old Warwick Thumb NT6 weighed almost as much as your striper.:D

    Nice catch, I did land a 42 pound King Salmon (pre digital camera) on a fly rod with an 8 pound tippet several years ago. I bet that fished tugged a little bit. How long did she take to land?

    By years you mean days .. maybe hours. ;)

    I'm with everyone else, the first thing I thought was "This will end all the T-40 jokes."

    Is it tailfin heavy?

    What does the tone material sound like?

    If you smacked Eddie Van Halen upside the head with it would there be a sound?

    Yes. The sound of sweet satisfaction.
  11. 10-20 minutes. Hard to tell for sure, time gets weird when you are bringing in fish. Her mouth was wide open, shoveling water on the way in so it felt more like 70 pounds!

    Damn, that's one fine fish! Great catch!
  18. is there a talkbass(fish).com forum somewhere?

    there was a SNL sketch years ago called "bass-o-matic". some guy slowly lowered a good sized fish (dead) into a blender, filled with water, that was turned on. the fish slowly gets chewed up and makes a big mess in the blender, mixing with the water. then the guy pours a glass full of this stuff, drinks it and declares with a big ****eating grin:
    "MMMMM .... THAT'S GOOD BASS!!!"

    I think that fish needs its intonation adjusted.
