To paraphrase a Barner of old who is no longer on the boards (Skip you know him ;) ) when he was commenting on Al McReynolds' record fish....

"It would be a travesty for some guy chunking to catch the world record bass"

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.

With that said, I read everything about surf plugging so that when I retire...............


One problem with chunking is they can get gut hooked easily and it presents a dilema for catch and release.

now I read only a small hand full of people (local knowledge) know the bass are here
Then I see a post of someone asking about a striper that was caught last night if it was a hybrid...ooh, he must be part of the local knowledge...boy he's lucky and so's the guy that got one off the beach ;)

...wonder how a site got so popular with the name like bass barn with only a handful of experts...

Standing on a jetty in heavy seas, then having to land a 78.8 lb beast on slippery rocks is lucky?

I don't know. :confused:
I never asked. I know he was busy at the time with work and other personal stuff. But I really don't know. Same with PhilCVG.

Hip, I'm right there with ya. In the dream there's sand under my feet and a wooden swimmer on the other end of the line.

But if I was a betting man, I'd go with the chunk.

Of course, if I was betting man, I'd stay away from the world record bet altogether

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.
