Youngster catches 21-pound striper Seven-year-old Eli Lis reached an important milestone in his fishing career on Sunday when he landed his first 21-pound striped bass. It was caught on a tube-andworm rig trolled behind his rowboat in Dutch Harbor. Lis has 89 stripers to his credit so far this year, with 18 of them being big enough to keep. His father has rowed over 100 miles with him in search of this first 21pounder and hopes the next one comes sooner than that.
