    Greg Myerson caught one huge fish on Thursday.




    A North Branford man has quite a fish story.
    On Thursday night, Greg Myerson caught what just might be a record-setting striped bass at 81.8 pounds in the waters off Westbrook, according to Jack’s Shoreline Bait & Tackle in Westbrook. It was weighed in on Friday morning.
    If the fish was properly documented, it would be eligible for a world record, On the Water reports, but Myerson took the fish home rather than pursue the official record.
    The existing record is 78 pounds, set by a New Jersey fisherman in the 1980s.
    The official state record for a striped bass is 75 pound, 6 ounces, set by Steven Franco in 1992
