    Default Rocky Gorge

    I FINALLY DID IT! I got this amazing land locked striper today. By far the best fight of my life and my favorite catch to date. I didn't have any way of measuring it but it weighed in at 21lbs 15oz. That's 22lbs in my book haha. Caught on an Alabama rig with an 8' heavy rod and 15lb flouro. I honestly thought it was going to spool me it was taking so much drag. I still can't stop smiling. Thankfully there was a boater close by who came over to take the full body picture. Tight lines!

    Nice catch! Makes it even sweeter that it was freshwater.

    Oh man that is crazy, I had no idea they got that big in RG. Congratulations!

    I have been hearing about guys having success with big baits there, but for largemouth. Were you specifically targeting stripers?

    Thank you all! And to bunnielab, I was not. However, I was targeting big fish. I threw an Alabama rig almost the entire time I was there. Whether a big bass, striper, or toothy critter, I knew they would want a nice shad imitation.
