We were surprised that some people didn't believe this fish was caught in the Hudson River in Jersey City on June 17, 2005. So, we dug up the rest of the photos and here you go. You wanna believe, believe. No believe, no believe.
A crowd gathers!
Prepare the gaffe!
Gaffer, ready! Over the rail!
Measure to be sure it's legal: 39-inches!
Can that fish smile?
This fish has a reservation at the Hyatt on the Hudson in Jersey City. Juan the fisherman (back to camera) caught the striper mid afternoon on the Hyatt pier.
We were told that these stripers work their way up the Atlantic coast and duck in the brackish rivers looking for chum (ha ha). One of these fishermen said he caught four this size in one day - at this pier - his best day ever!
