It’s official! The North Carolina state record has just been broken! Tyler Shields of Murphy NC just caught a 66.1 pound striped bass! It’s a HUGE fish at 47.5 inches long and a 35 inch girth. It was caught using 10 lb. test line with a Zoom worm! It’s quite an amazing story of a record caught right here on Lake Hiwassee.
