Mammoth, world-record bass hooked in Alabama

Posted: Updated:
PARRISH, AL (WSMV) -

A fish caught on an Alabama river last month has been confirmed as a world record.

A 69-pound, 9-ounce striped bass was caught on Feb. 28 by James Bramlett, 65, of Dora, AL.

Bramlett said it took him almost 30 minutes to reel in the fish on the Black Warrior River near the Gorgas Steam Plant.

The previous record was 67 pounds, 8 ounces caught on May 1992 in Los Banos, CA, according to the International Game Fish Association.
