These "regulations" are what got us in trouble in the 80s and it seems to be heading in that same direction. It is apparent the fisheries mgmt does not have a good handle on how to manage things. If they did we wouldn't be seeing less and less bass each year. I would like think people can keep as many fish as they catch but it is not an infinite resource which needs to be managed carefully. As much as I like fishing, I still prefer catching.

The only regulations in the 80's (pre moritorium) was a 16" size limit & an unlimited bag limit. There was no license/permit required to sell striped bass. Every Tom, Dick & Harry sold striped bass to either supplement their incomes or pay their expenses for owning a boat. To say "THESE REGULATIONS" are the same just shows your ignorance.

Nice fish by the way...up

I guarantee that I would look MUCH happier if I caught that fish. He looks like he's about to break someone's nose for talking about his mama. Bass rage? Could be a side effect from eating too many heavily contaminated jumbo-sized bass.

The current regulations are the similar in the sense that they aren't sufficient just like they weren't back then. If they were we wouldn't be having this conversation. True, there are more than one factor contributing to the decline in the Striper stock but I can say based off of my experience working as a analyst (which means you must take into account a number of different variables to make a conclusion), my 35 years of fishing, my father's 70 years of fishing, the observations by Rich Trox as well as fishing in the 80s, I know something needs to be done. Maybe you're the ignorant one thinking everything is butterflies and rainbows. Just like the regulations in the 80s weren't sufficient, neither are these. I wish I was wrong, I really do but the bottom line in numbers tells me otherwise and I really don't want to take up golf.

The limits should be [email protected] 28 to 40 inches and 1 @ 40 to 45 inches. All Big bass should be released. The only problem is that the Big girls are exhausted and most likely will die because people take pictures and have them out of the water to long. Trust me its rare to catch such a big fish and I understand the excitement of taking pictures. If done quickly and put back in the water and get water through its gills it can be done successfully. These regs should also be for everyone including charters. Make the rules equal for everyone with no exceptions and I think it would help increase the stocks.

my thoughts are that the regs should be 1 fish per person over 28 inches...and that's it...theres plenty of meat there for dinner...there shouldn't be bias and commercialism to the charter boats advantage...or people seemingly expressing their concerns based as to what benefits their size beliefs and personal needs...it all leads to abuse and misuse..a look at a report of a party charter boat with a 100 small bass lying on the deck makes my skin crawl...the effect isn't just the killing of those 100 fish...its those fish times 100 times 100 etc...based on what they could have reproduced...i agree with the scientific evidence i read as well as what billy the greek mentioned someplace that big fish have many eggs based on their sheer size but the majority of the eggs arent functional roe...simply look at it this way...take a bass that lives from 15 lbs to 40 lbs and think about how many eggs it has over its life and how many eggs its offspring could have rendered and its clear how much that benefits the bass society and the gene pool...a huge bass has already spread this huge influx to the population and done its job in the circle of life...killing a small fish ends this society growth process in its tracks...the release process for me begins as a fish approaches the boat..but sometimes big fish regardless of how fast you work have little chance of survival...lastly, i fished with greg myerson and we caught 20 fish or so in one hour and he released every one..he keeps very little and i suppose the thrust of my response is that i think the caring of this fish's future is everyone's problem and not just those that keep a big one or looking for a picture..

I'd imagine a fish this size has spawned more than its fair share of times. Don't really see an issue with him keeping it as long as its legal. He really is dialed in

He is not the only one getting fish that big. Some people aren't trying to sell a line of tackle and aren't trying to get fame. I have seen some amazing fish photos recently...
