I’ve been looking for this fish for two years diving with the pole. I use a big blue polespear that i modified with a longer injection rod and a quality slip tip. I lost a few fish with the magnetic tip, haven’t lost a single fish since the modifications. I was working a sand ledge the fourth dive down A big solo striper was laying behind a small snag. I made my shot and stunned it. She didn’t go twenty. I quickly grabbed the fish by the mouth and that was that. I knew it was a record so we took some pics and headed home to get a certified weight on her. It’s going to look beautiful right along side the previous Speargun world record striper mount and the current women’s record. Thanks to my sponsors you know who you are.
