11.0 lb. Striped Bass (striper) caught by Arizona Wildlife Outfitters fishing on Friday July 11, 2008 at 11:45 near Meadview in Mohave County, Arizona (AZ), United States North America using a cut up anchovie a Panfish Jig by KLF Lures

My fishing partner Shane Moline and I were fishing in the Striper-R-Rama fishing tournament. It is an annual overnight tournament for stripers.

I had two hook ups at the same time and handed my ultralight rod to Shane. This big guy was on it! I had 6 lb test line and was using a just broken Fenwick rod (tip broke) with a Canyon Lures jig head that had a small piece of cut up anchovie on it.

Shane fought the fish for over an hour before getting it to the boat!

At the weigh in, this 11 pounder helped us smoke the other 40 teams, and we won by over four pounds! We won first place, big fish, and all of our side bets! WE took home just at $1,000 for our efforts. This is the second year in a row I have been part of the winning team ( I won in '07 with Henderson, NV resident Bruce Hudson)

Not a bad night on Lake Mead.

This fish is the largest ever checked in during a Striper-R-Rama tournament.

Night time fishing for stripers at Lake Mead in the Spring/Summer is outstanding!

If you want to catch a lot of fish, then this is the place to go!

I'll be booking trips there starting in April. Come out to Las Vegas, we're only a 100 miles from there, and spend a night with a friend, wife, son/daughter and catch a lot of stripers!
