The Big Fish Hunters whose members consist of retirees, ex-cons, artists and men and women alike fish for the big prize, who can catch the largest striped bass the river has to over. Abiding the rules of the river, the fishermen throw back the smaller fish and mainly catch and release. At the end of the season, they hold a barbecue and reveal who won, so far this season a bass weighing over 50 pounds was caught.
