Peter Vican strikes again! The angler who, in 2008 landed a 76-pound, 14-ounce Rhode Island state record striped bass, put another feather in his cap on Sunday, June 19, 2011 when he bested this massive 77-pound, 4 ouncer! The beast is under a pound and a half under the All-Tackle world record and measured an impressive 52 inches and was a solid 35 inches around nearly nose to tail.
The mammoth bass sucked down a live eel near Block Island at 3:30 AM.
