This has been going around Facebook this morning. I can't confirm or deny;

NEW WORLD RECORD STRIPER!
Paul Melnyk has heard that there is a new striped bass world record this morning!
An 81.6 pound slob was taken in Connecticut waters this morning on a live eel.
This fish was believed to have been taken on the Southwest reef by a fellow named Al Stromski.
The fish was weighed in at Shoreline Bait and Tackle in Westbrook Ct. WOW!

People are already crying foul and the damn story hasn't even come out yet. No wonder this guy might not file for the IGFA record. Al McReynold was quoted as saying that the fish he caught ruined his life because of the drama and neigh-sayers. I'm not taking any sides here, but give this guy a minute to tell his story. Geeez

The following is from the OTW Blog; [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Here’s the facts, reported to us by Connecticut-based OTW writer Kierran Broatch: This morning, Striper Cup angler Greg Myerson weighed in a striped bass that registered 81.88 pounds on the scale at Jack’s Shoreline in Westbrook, Connecticut – almost 12 hours after it had been landed Thursday evening aboard a boat in Long Island Sound.

If Myerson’s fish is certified by the IGFA, it will be the new all-tackle world record striped bass.

Angler might not register apparent record striped bass

A Connecticut angler who appears to have broken saltwater fishing’s most coveted world record might decide not to register his catch with the International Game Fish Association.

Greg Myerson, of Westport, Conn., caught an 81.88-pound striped bass late last night while fishing in the On the Water Striper Cup. The giant was caught in Long Island Sound.

Myerson's fish was weighed in at Jack's Bait and Tackle in Westbrook nearly 12 hours after it was caught.

According to On the Water reporter Kierran Broatch, Myerson is opting out of sending paperwork to the IGFA to claim his record. Similar state record catches have been met with unrelenting doubt and scrutiny - and suspicions of illegal activity.

Broatch has reported Myerson was so overwhelmed with all the attention that he drove himsef to a local hospital because of an apparent panic attack.

Myerson's catch didn't surprise many familiar with the tournament, where his name is splashed over the catch reports.

The current IGFA record for the species is a 78-pound, 8-ounce giant caught in 1982 by Al McReynolds, who was fishing from the end of the Vermont Avenue Jetty in Atlantic City, N.J. McReynolds' fish was 53 inches long and had a girth of 34½ inches.

Like many potential world record catches, this one could turn out to be a hoax, but many northeastern media outlets are reporting on it.
