World record striper angler to speak

Greg Myerson, who caught the world record striped bass off Connecticut, will explain how to have the big fish find you when he speaks to the Nutmeg Chapter of Trout Unlimited on Tuesday, Nov. 21, at 7 p.m.

The meeting, open to the public and anglers of all styles, will be held at Port 5, 69 Brewster St., in the Black Rock section of Bridgeport. Pizza will be available, and beverages can be purchased from Port 5.

Born in New York but raised in Wallingford, Myerson currently holds four world records for stripers, including the striper caught off Westbrook weighing 81 pounds, 15 ounces, the all-tackle length world record at 113 centimeters, and the catch and release world record that he caught with his partner Captain Frank Crescitelli. All his fishing gear utilizes his patent-pending sound technology, and he continues to invent fishing tackle that catches monster stripers, bluefish, blackfish, sharks, and a host of other species.

Myerson’s fishing strategies, tips, and tournaments can be found at worldrecordstripercompany.com/blog.
