Default Carolyn Brown sets Va. women milestone

Carolyn Brown, a well-known Virginia Beach angler, landed a 44-inch striped bass, which was her 100th such citation. She is the first woman and the third angler to reach this milestone.
On January 30th 2004 Carolyn Brown set a new Virginia state record with a 63 lb Striped Bass. The crew was fishing on the Fishateer, owner Linda Stenke, Captain Larry Mattocks, Carolyn and Debbie Hurst aboard. The fish measured in at 50 inches in length and 33 1/4 inches in girth. On January 2nd 2005 a new record was set, a 63-lb. 8-oz. striped bass caught by Paul W. Kleckner. His fish was caught north of Virginia Beach in the Atlantic Ocean approximately 18 miles south of Wachapreague Inlet. He was fishing with Otis W. Evans, Jr. on the boat White Bite. The record-setting striper measured 50.5 inches in length and had a girth of 33 inches.

Ps. Striper fishing has improved along the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel were fish up to 50 pounds have been caught recently

When we mention Carolyn Brown and Captain Kleckner it would be remiss not to include Alvin Wimbrough . Not to diminish the accomplishments of the other anglers but to aknowledge at least in a very small way this anglers catch as well.
Here are the Virginia official record pics.

When is a a record not a record?

Alvin Wimbrough had caught a huge striped bass in May just south of Sandbridge. The fish was weighed at Long Bay Pointe Bait and Tackle and tipped the scales at 66 pounds, 8 ounces. That easily tops the current state record of 63-8, caught in January by Paul Kleckner of Greenbackville, Va.
But Wimbroughs fish has been disqualified as a pending state record. Wimbrough, of Virginia Beach, holds a state hook-and-line commercial fishing license. Rules for the Virginia Saltwater Fishing Tournament, which oversees state records and presents awards for significant catches, prohibit commercial hook-and-line fishermen from participating in the program.
But Wimbrough said he has a tournament release citation hanging on his wall.
It could be that he does, said Claude Bain, director of the awards program. ?Some of these things slip through the cracks. But a state record is not going to slip through any crack.
Bain said the tournament committee has been adamant about the rule.
We cant get into the mind of a commercial fisherman when they go out on a trip, Bain said. The rule was designed to prevent one from going out, catching a big fish and then saying that they werent commercial fishing. More often than not, the trip started as a commercial trip.
Bain does not dispute the intent of Wimbroughs outing Friday but said rules are rules.
Wimbrough, 41, was fishing with a group of friends on the charter boat Fishing Fever with Capt. Paul Ewing. Wimbrough has chartered Ewing?s services in the past.
This was a charter trip, Wimbrough said. Since I got my citation from last year, I never thought it would be a problem.
