      Take a moment to help protect the striped bass..   11/09/2018

      As the title suggests, please take one minute to let NOAA know that re-opening any portion of the EEZ to striped bass fishing is a horribly short sighted idea.  Give the follow thread a glance - there's a link in the OP - it only takes one minute to add your comment - it doesn't need to be fancy or eloquent or lengthy. And it can be done so the comment is posted anonymously.  Please, take a minute...opening the EEZ around Block Island is just the first step to opening the EEZ coast wide and adding an incredible amount of fishing pressure on a stock that is already in real trouble. Thank you
