Federal waters for stripers?

Looking for some info on a possible opening of the EEZ to striper fishing this season. Does anyone have some insight into that?

I would love it and I know some may feel otherwise, be jeez, I would rather ride another 45 minutes to fish alone in some great spots than to fight over a productive edge. Plus, I hate feeling like just because I want to fish a rip that is out of bounds, I am taking a chance on being boarded and fined when all I want to do is fish some really great waters.

Definitely will not be opened this year. The vote on Amend 6 was to ask the NMFS to open it. Now the NMFS will have to do a study on the impact of the issue. It'll be at least 2 years before it's opened, if ever.
