Congratulations to Connecticut Capt. Blaine Anderson on landing a fish of a lifetime, a 57-inch striped bass estimated to weigh about 74 pounds! Blaine is no stranger to big fish – he has put clients on numerous 40 and 50 pound bass guiding on the waters of Long Island Sound around Niantic, Connecticut. This fish was caught on Blaine’s first trip out on the ocean to do some research for an upcoming charter. What a way to start the season!
