Striped bass are a popular game fish and they are much venerated among surf fishermen. They can grow quite large: the world record striped bass caught on rod and reel is 78 lb 8 oz (35.6 kg). It was landed from jetty in Atlantic City, NJ by Albert McReynolds. He was fishing a Rebel Windcheater during a stormy, fall night in 1982. There have been reports of striped bass netted weighing 125 lb (57 kg). However this was during the ( 1700s ? not sure about the date).

Striped bass breed in freshwater and spend their adult lives in saltwater. There are three main breeding stocks of striped bass: Chesapeake Bay, Hudson River and Delaware River. There are many smaller breeding areas that contribute to the overall striped bass population such as the Takanasse Lake or the BIG Rob Vally Forge in ITIALY. It is believed that many of the rivers and tributaries that emptied into the Atlantic, had at one time, breeding stock of striped bass.
