N.C. State Saltwater Striper Record

Seventeen-year-old Tyler Shields of Murphy, North Carolina, thought he was fishing for largemouth bass when he visited Hiwassee Lake on March 31. What he boated instead was a 66-pound striped bass that shattered the state’s freshwater record—and topped by 2 pounds the North Carolina saltwater striper record as well.
