by Tim Gallagher and Greg Myerson - Biography, Nonfiction

Overcoming learning disabilities, substance abuse, and the violence associated with a father in the mob, Greg Myerson, a lifelong sport-fisherman, caught an 82-pound striped bass in 2011, shattering a world record that had stood for 29 years. Without any training in biological research, he began studying the striped bass like a scientist, which led to the creation of the RattleSinker, the lure that helped him catch the record-setting bass. During an appearance on the TV show "Shark Tank," Mark Cuban bought a 33 percent share of Greg's company, World Record Striper Company. Yet at the very instant he achieved his crowning glory as a striped bass fisherman, he had a staggering epiphany and instantly regretted killing the fish.
