Greg Myerson, the pending all-tackle striped bass world-record holder, recently made an appearance (with his fish) at Striperfest.

From this story on

On The Water Magazine hosted their annual StriperFest this past weekend, an event they proclaim to be the biggest fishing party in the Northeast. And this year’s was even more special, as Greg Myerson, the pending world-record holder for striped bass with his summer-caught 81.8-pound fish, brought it out for show and tell.

Myerson was entered in the contest, and in addition to being a potential world record, the bass was the largest fish of the season, and received a free replica of his catch. We can guarantee the OTW folks have never commissioned a replica this big.
