New NJ Bowfin record

Henry V

I kept telling friends in NJ that a new state record Bowfin would come out of the Trenton area. I predicted it because of all the Bowfin posted from that area to this site. Well it finally happened: this angler crushed the standing record.

And since we are on the subject of new records, I was on vacation last week and I read in the Bergen Record that an angler in Connecticut landed an 81 lb striper. Is this true? Anyone have a photo/link to share? If it is, and the IGFA checks out the fish, that's a new world record striped bass.

For many Anglers P- Line is one of the best if not the best Co Polymer Monofilament period.

It barely has no memory cast farther and good resistance to abbrasion & ratings are conservative in lbs.
