I shot one last night that weighed in at 51lbs. Weighed it in at hoffman's. Was a little disappointed when I saw that to qualify for state record it had to be over 55 and the spot is vacant.

Re: Biggest striper shot in nj?

There was never really a state thing to weigh them in and keep a record of them so I can't recall any fish bigger than that from NJ ever being officially recorded anywhere. I have seen pics of shot fish that were claimed to be pushing just over 60lbs and heard of a few others as big but there's no way to know. Some of the stories I consider very reliable others not so much.

Congrats on the great fish

The biggest one taken in NJ was 65lbs by Stan Meltzof many years ago - there were at least 3 others over 60 lbs that I know of. I think there are pics of Stanley's fish on the net - I know I have one somewhere in my files.

That's a nice fish! Some of those vacant spots are going to be tough! I bet someone is going to bring in that triggerfish category this summer though!

Drew
Here's the link to Stanley's 65 lber -http://www.realfish-underwater.com/, under spearfishing/old photos. The other big bass was 61 or 62 lbs, taken by Sam Watson.
The bluefish, also taken by Stanley, was 24 lbs.
In the "old" days, the world record for striper was 72 lbs (hook& string) - nobody thought about a separate spear record then - they just wanted the world record.
