Check out this gigantic striped bass caught in Massachusetts.

It’s getting late in the week and the weekend is almost here. If you need extra motivation to hit the waters this weekend (doubtful, we know), look no further than this awesome 64-pound striped bass caught in Massachusetts.

Hear the angler, Jeff Fortin tell the story behind this big fish His group was already having a really good day on the water in Buzzards Bay when this lunker hit!

It’s too bad they couldn’t revive this monster and give it the chance to grow even bigger. This bass is only about 9 pounds off the mark for Massachusetts’ state record of 77 pounds that’s been reached three times. At least the fish won’t go to waste.

But he might need to buy a bigger cooler for next time. This striper doesn’t fit!

Congratulations Jeff on one awesome catch!
