Norfork Lake, Arkansas, has yielded a 51-pound striped bass to a bank fisherman using 10-pound-test line.
Eric Green was fishing a suspending Rogue from the bank in the Quarry Park area of the lake.
“It stripped the line off twice. I could see the holes and line tie on my spool both times. I just put my thumb on the line and horsed him back both times,” Green said of the 45-minute battle.
