New Record Hybrid Striped Bass

May 22, 2005 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports News
The huge striped fish attacked a crankbait lure Cox was casting into the
Tippecanoe River below the Lake Freeman Dam.

"I had just hooked and battled a 15 pounder for about 15 minutes," said Cox.
"I cast to the same area and hooked an even bigger fish."

Cox banked the fish after 15 minutes of reeling, running and holding on. "I
only hooked two fish that day," said Cox.
