Every year I go fishing for big fish on my brother’s birthday as we did growing up. This is my way of honoring him, and this year I caught the fish of a lifetime. This 51lb Striped Bass is the new Lake Martin record based on all records we can find. This Stripe was 4 pounds shy of the Alabama state record caught in 1955. This catch deserved a Crown!
