I see why you say that but I dont agree. Male and females stripers age to length ratio is very close.Male stripers reach sexual maturity around age 2-3, @ 3 years old these fish are 20" long at age 7 there about 30" and usually stop spawning around 11 which is about 37". Females reach maturity from 4-8+ and stop usually around 15 which puts them from 25"-46" plus fisf under 6 yrs dont usually migrate

I lived in Md for a couple of years in the '90's. These were the regs

- one fish at 18" to 24"
- one trophy tag per angler per year over 48".
- Closure in the Spring. I don't remember when the opener was but I remember productive C&R on bucktails in May.

As I have said OVER AND OVER AGAIN

No matter what regs. you have will not do any good to really know the TRUE stats of fish being taken--until you have LEOS at every port-dock-etc. to check--and you know that won't happen.

To answer my own question about where the bonus tag money goes to Well -- a small percentage goes to the striped bass sector of the F&G and the majority goes to a second party company that issues the tags online.

Now--as far as TRUE anglers--I think we need to POLICE ourselves as as to other anglers (OR NOT SO OTHER ANGLERS)--NOW the worst part of this is--and I really regret posting this--but when the week-end "angler" comes in with a cooler full of fish---And have seen this many-many-many --times and they ask who's taking the fish home--NONE ICED and dumped in the dumster--when 6-7-8 people say I don't want them--THIS is what makes me sick --stop this too--?HuhHuhHuh?

when getting your boating PERMIT--there should be a fish managing section--1--yes 1 violation no-boat-no--fishing--clause.--If the fines for illeagle fishing/boating were harder--there will be less of all this CRAP......
With all the people on the water in NJ--I would like to see the same as NJ driving --PAY to take a boating permit and a test on the water--and the monies from that go to fisheries management.

BUT the bottom line is STILL INFORCEMENT

This thread really got out of context . Guess there's a thin line between opinions and facts, and to some people facts are offensive and to some people opinions are offensive and then there's the people who get offended by somebody's opinion on a fact

I was referring to the photo when i said it doesnt affect me. Dont quote me out of context. And don't edit my quotes by CAPing them either. I wouldnt spend my time debating this topic with someone i never met if i didnt think fish stocks and regulations affected me.

 See now one thing my education taught me was when writing you break your thoughts into paragraphs. See when i said it doesn't affect me I was still in the "I personally, IN MY OPINION, do not like the stacked limit pile of dead fish, a species that was once scarce, that we all claim to love and respect, photo paragraph. It was just an aside with little to do with the actual original post.

That's ok though, i really dont care if you respect me or not.  Im sure you are a wealth of local knowledge, but you have some of the most scatter brained posts out there. It's so hard to read through your random observations (which seeminlgly is all they are as are mine) that I still have no idea what stance you take.

Come on guys...this is a great thread and topic...

but

Let's keep it cool and not get personal here...no finger pointing, name calling and or insults...fine to state your beliefs and opinions but respect others as well...

That's what separates us from many other fishing boards...we can have a debate with out the fist fighting in the parking lot....

Thanks... Grin

The surest way to never correct the issue is to have recreational fisherman battling with each other instead of the real problem.  The battle lies with the commercial fisheries and the mountains of flawed data being used to set the rules.  While we sit here and argue about whether a charter guy should advertise that he catches fish for his clients with pictures, boats are netting huge amounts of bunker and killing by catch that makes what the charter guys take laughable in comparison.  Tuna pens are holding millions of tuna in captivity to fatten them up for the slaughter.  Pots are all over our reefs.  It goes on and on.  

Fighting with each other is nonsense, especially guys on this forum.  People who frequent this site, charter or recreational, do so because they are the few that are passionate about the sport.  We are the ones who actually give a damn.  I woud be willing to bet pretty much everyone on this site has NEVER taken an illegal fish.  The charters guys livelihood depends on a healthy fishery.  They can only follow the laws that are in place and need to advertise.  I know one thing, if I were for some reason needing to go out on a charter I know exactly which ones I would choose.  I'll decide what I do with my legal catch whether I keep or release, but you can bet I'm going with the charters that catch fish and prove it regularly with.......pictures of fish.
