Hooking Up Anglers Since 2011.
The fish took a two ounce homemade bucktail jig with a pink Fat Cow strip added. It was able to put up a drag screaming fight, and I knew I was onto a good fish within seconds after hooking her. That jig that it hit was made with a heavy duty size 7/0 Mustad hook. I've never seen one of these bend until today.
When I got the fish ashore I was astonished to find this fish actually bent the hook in half in its vice grip jaw. I was lucky I did not lose the fish. I kept the hook and jig as a reminder of just how strong a larger striper can be. Take a look at the hook and jig below.
By the way, all was good here as the fish was released in good shape to fight and maybe bend a hook again!
