50.0 lb. Striped Bass (striper) caught by Tim Hinkley fishing on 10/25/98
49.0" / 50.0 lb. Striped Bass (striper) caught by Tim Hinkley fishing on Sunday October 25, 1998 at 18:01 using a red and white a Topwater Bait by Bomber Lures

While fishing for stripers in the fall off the coast of glouchester ma,my friend Bob Amero and I came upon a school of small bass corraling baitfish in a cove.there were so many stripers it looked like you could walk on them but they were all schoolies.after an hour of having fun catching schoolies on a medium heavy action striper rod and big baitrunner reel,I said to Bob"hey let me see that old wooden plug on top of your box".I tied the plug onto an old k-mart rod with fifteen pound test.I said "there,this will be more fun with a lighter rod and lighter line.Well needless to say,on my first cast as soon as my lure hit the water,the biggest bass of my life grabbed the lure.after a forty minute ,white knuckle fight,including the bass breaking the surface a couple of times,the bas was landed.that was fifteen years ago.On a recent trip with my friend bob,I asked"hey,do you still have that red and white popper"?My friend Bob answered..."you will never... use that plug ...again".
