  1. I always felt that a large shark or 2 liked to shadow those large striper schools. Picking off the weak ones. I fished one of the first big tube and worm bites at Scorton ledge back in the ninties. A few guys had 15 pounders bit in half. The hit on the bass was violent, sharp and very fast. No blue dog can due that........
  2. Better your Mojo took the hit rather than you......Glad u didn't get seriously hurt
  3. http://www.landmanagementle.com/le/usace.cfm
  4. Sure but they need to be doable alternatives.........
  5. Guys the fed does not have control over the fish that swim in the ditch. The fish belong to the commonwealth. The feds cannot make the canal a C&R area. It's not within their authority. The state will never do it either so stop putting that idea forth lol https://www.animallaw.info/article/american-wildlife-law-introduction When citations are written the money from the fines has to go to the general fund. The EPO's cannot write tickets to generate income to hire more EPO's. It doesn't work that way. It would take an act of legislature to allow that to happen and that will NEVER happen so nix on that idea as well........ http://www.patriotledger.com/article/20110122/news/301229828 Sorry.....Just tired of reading those same 2 ideas in posts over and over........
  6. Ah won't happen.....Who's gonna enforce the ban? The town? I bet not........The state? Nah........ A million poachers down at the ditch and the state's lucky if they bag a couple of them......The feds won't do a thing.........
  7. I don't think the feds can......I cannot think of any federal land,waterbody or managed area within state borders that the feds can do that. They may own the land but the fish still belong to the state. I cannot imagine the feds would want to even get involved in such a practice.
  8. Bourne PD got a full cup already besides it's a federal waterway.......The feds should be doing the enforcing..... https://www.usace.army.mil/Protection.aspx
  9. How about a call my friend

  10. Not really.....Poaching is poaching no matter the size of the fish or what is done with them..........
  11. I think eddie is just hitching his horse to the canal striper bonanza......What he's doing is no different then the tackle shops, for sale plug makers and other outdoor writers are doing. A1 loaned me the book. I read it. Kinda boring but I can see where a newbie could benefit from his writing's. I talked to eddie via email....He seems like a decent sort.......
  12. The canal could have it's own full time warden in the warm months........
  13. Bob is explaining to the guy how the spot burning rule works.......He just doing his mod. thing..........I'm sure keith gets it now.....
  14. Sure you can.....Plenty of farm raised fish that size for sale...... It's not bad.....
  15. Most sailboats are Defined as "Auxiliary sailboats". Means they have an engine as well. You can go through the canal with your sail up as long as you are using your motor......
