My nephew John Curran caught this monster striped bass on July 25, 2012. He was in my little dory using our favorite method, slow trolling the tube & worm on 14lb. test using light tackle. This monster bass was landed in front to the Stratford light house (point no point) at the mouth of the Housatonic River.
