Lawrence Dillman of Rockaway Beach, Mo., shows a 65-pound, 2-ounce striped bass he caught May 21 at Bull Shoals Lake that is the new Missouri state record. Dillman used a minnow on 20-pound test line to catch the striper while fishing from shore. The Arkansas state record striper is 64 pounds, 8 ounces caught from the White River below Beaver Dam in 2000.
