The world record was caught in atlantic city on a Rebel plug in a Noreaster, by Al McReynolds. I personally would rather catch fish on a lure instead of a chunk, but I have a place and boat on the upper Delaware bay and so I chunk since it is the main method for that area. Sometimes I think chunking is just like catfishing. Every method has it's tricks, but if i can only fish several days a fall striper season, I'm gonna go where my boat and cottage are.Originally posted by design:

Standing on a jetty in heavy seas, then having to land a 78.8 lb beast on slippery rocks is lucky?
"It would be a travesty for some guy chunking to catch the world record bass"

I will catch the next world record bass on a hi/lo flounder rig with some old squid and chicken. On a hot summer afternoon in back bay summer traffic.
