A Longmont teenager has been stripped of his record for a 31-pound, 8-ounce striped bass after he admitted he lied about where he caught it.

Isaac Sprecher says he was immature for contending he caught the fish at northwest Longmont's McIntosh Lake, when he'd actually reeled it in from a pond at Pella Crossing, a Boulder County Open Space area with catch-and-release rules.

According to the Longmont Times-Call, state wildlife managers verify all claims for fish records and they smelled something fishy about Sprecher's claim.

The state's official striped bass record-holder remains a 15-pound, 11-ounce fish caught in 2009 in Pueblo County.
