It's not Photoshopped folks. 17 year old Tyler Shields was expecting a leisurely afternoon out on Hiwassee Lake with a couple of buddies, but that leisurely afternoon on the water turned into something I'm sure he'll never forget. On 10 pound test and an open face reel, Shields reeled in a state record 66 pound striper, that shattered the old NC record of 54 pounds set back in 1991. The most impressive thing is the fact that the fish was less than 2 pounds shy of the world record freshwater striper. Read the story here. Awesome job Tyler!
