A big fish is a thrill but catching it on a plug you made must be awesome!!!

Took my first trip to Mantauk last week in July to check it out on our way to Newport, RI. Didn't fish just did some recon. Plan on making my first trip there this Fall to surf fish so watch out I'll be picking your brains for places to stay and general ideas. (Nothing specific--of course!!! )

Got to Newport the day "Iron Mike" caught his big striper but wasn't aware of it until I saw it posted here.

Looks like the lucky angler trolled that cow up. Check out his rod & reel. I doubt he was casting into the sugd with that setup.

Hello!
I went to the sight given to look at the fish, I do'nt think it is real, Looks as if that fish was super imposed on it. For a 69lb. fish & the way he is holding it out to his right, Two things i noted were that he is not leaning at all 69lbs would tend to offset you just a tad, don't you think! Also he is not even grimmacing a bit to hold it up that far from his body------ BOULDER -DASH!

Hello Again
I went back & looked again, Take a real close look at where his hand is that he is supposedly holding up that fish with, His hand is just above the OUTSIDE of that fish's mouth.Look real close in both pics. If he was holding up that fish his hand would not even be able to be seen at all. And there is no evedance of a rope holding it up neither!!!. I can't believe all of you tiger eyes have not seen the obvious faults w/ these pics. No iam not jealous, But i do believe in being honest!

Claim Chucker - this is teh second time someone has doubted a fish posted on that site. The last time, the person who made teh accusation looked like a complete jacka$$ as teh fish was weighed in at a B&T, and there weer about 10 different pictures of teh fish. THe same exact BS was spewed about where the hand held the fish. It was weighed in at a B&T - what more do you need as proof?

I hate to even get involved but I believe it. Look at the ground below the tail. It looks like the fish is on a board or pole and the lucky boater is holding that up. That's my impression.

I don't mean disabuse any one but please guys, the fish is hung from a "spiked hook" or just a 2x4 with a spike in it. The spike is most likely in its gill plate. That explains the hand theory, his hand is simply resting on the fish.

1: All Shadows align perfectly. It would take quite a long time for a graphic specialist to get everything aligned seamlessly.
2: I could hardly believe that a well respected B&T shop would be party to a scam.
3: I could also hardly believe that a highly respected organization like Nor'East Magazine could be duped.

Sorry but I looked at the picture first thing Monday AM, it's a wonderful fish of a lifetime and Mr. George has my unqualified respect and admiration. Some envy too!

How long before a new world record is caught? Please God let it be from the New Jersey SURF, caught by some late middle aged Italian American that lives in central NJ and looks just like me! OK not me I'll be happy with a +60 Lber but I hope the next world record comes from the NJ surf.

Jeez can you imagine if that bass was caught off the rocks at Montauk or the North Jetty at Island Beach? You would have to fish with a buddy so you could take turns covering each-other

I am sorry, but I agree with Clamchucker. That fish has really small eyeballs. It seems to be sneering. Plus, its gill plates look like they are plastic. Any the angler does not have any blood and guts on the shirt.

You guys are so gullible.

Easy baby, EAsssssyyy..... Everyone relax. The board with the spike theory is the reason he's not straining and is legit. My sincere congrats. If you doubters take the time to look at the pic, you might notice something. Look at the first pic, there is something black (possibly rubber) at the tip of the fish's tail where it is touching the ground which is helping hold the fish up. Then look at the second pic, it's there again, put to the left and slightly up the tail. Again holding the fish's weight and this time the pole's base (or whatever it is) is staggered back a bit.
