Just had a long telephone talk with one of the N.Y.S. ASMFC Commissioner . He is all for what was in NYCRF letter for the new addendum on striped bass. One big step.

No the fish, the fisherman and all those who make a living from recreational fishing.
As the word now is it could be a 60% reduction.

Here's how to save the striped bass. Charter boats are obviously the #1 reason for the decline. That's no secret. So ban them altogether. Especially the whole montauk fleet.

2. The DEC and the rest of the waste of taxpayer money enforcement agencies should do their damn job and start arresting poachers. Go to any bridge or jetty and start there. you'll find all those poaching morons. and you guys know who i am referring to. Especially the ones who throw snag hooks during blitzes at Montauk. You know the i no speak da english idiots. And anybody who is not following the rules and regulations of the fishery.

3. Have the corrupt fishery managers removed from their positions and put in people that can't be bought and corrupted. People who will be honest and reveal the fact that there is overfishing occuring of the striped bass.

4. The kill limit should be 1 fish at 36" per person per day.

If all this can be met you'll see a dramatic change in the striped bass populations and it will flourish like it has 50 years ago. up

Ban charter boats so one that doesn't have the luxury of owning a boat or have a full surf set up shouldn't be allowed to fish for stripers? I have no connections to charter or party boats besides the back I frequent them when I feel the itch to get on the water and yea I'm a frequent surf fisherman too. I just don't think its fair to say that only avid fisherman can fish for stripers. Now with that being said I guess if party boats were limited to one keeper I guess I wouldn't be to mad but I think 36" is a bit harsh especially if a family goes out and spends 3-4 hundred dollars on a trip and have to release 35" fish just MHO. I think the fact the our boardering states have looser regs than we do May have a larger factor in the population of bass. Now as far as the dec I do agree with you there...

Wow ban the Montauk fleet.....unemployement for all of those boats...let the private boats catch all the fish that's brilliant !!

while we are at it get rid of all the party /charter boats great idea !


Now I agree with your DEC point......more enforcement and raise the size to 36" and one per day....problem is money

I cant tell you the last time i saw enforcement at the beach.

Well do the math, 2 fish per customer on a charter boat (striped bass) lets say at least 30 customers,2 fish per person that would be 60 fish per trip 60 fish X2 a day is 120 fish x7days=840 bass per week from that 1 boat. now add up all the boats in the whole charter fleet. That's thousands of fish per week all season long. Now are you going to tell me that's not affecting the population. Wake up!!!!!

I don't think there are to many captains that catch 840 keepers a week on a regular basis...
