actually......there would be no regard for the "40inch fish cast after cast for hours".....those annoying 1000  people that you speak of are killing 99% of the stripers that are being caught.

and as your avatar suggests, you are on the same team.

the big ones are the breeders with the good want them to live and die a natural death.

eat  yourself a 25 inch fish every once in awhile.

if your state regulated the slaughter of the breeders of that species then i guarantee you that there would only be a few fishermen on those rocks instead of the dozens in the line you see in that pic.

the big  red drum that  are being caught and released  in nc are  consistently at larger sizes since the slot size popped up.

20 yrs ago a 45 inch fish was a big we catch 50's all the time.

try not killing EVERY striper for 15 yrs or so and watch the sizes and the numbers jump for your kids.


and lets talk drum rigs....


Thanks for the reply but up here in mass we do not have a slot limit. The law states 1 fish over 28in. Unfortunately I don't make the laws I just follow them. If I choose to keep a fish I caught to eat so be it. And as far as I'm concerned the laws are just bs. When every state on the east coast differs from one another nothing is being accomplished.  Every state should be on the same page as far as limits go. Any ways drum rigs. Worst pic ever but I make mine similar to yours.

20170913_091054.png yourself a striper. i fully support your lunch.

just try to promote the idea of not killing the largest and oldest of the species.....there are always going to be more 30 inch fish than 50 inch fish for natural reasons.

the gene pool that makes the largest and smartest  needs to be looked out for.

call me a fish hugger....i  could care less....i like the idea of big fish down the line for my grandkids to catch.
