    I'm over here now!
  1. Try to control yourselves in public. Just a thought.
  2. I totally disagree. It was a big event. IMHO, far from a great event , that needs repeating. Personally, after hooking and releasing these fish for a couple of hours, it got a bit weird for me. It was WAY too easy, as I saw hundreds of healthy breeders, leaving the biomass, to end up in a dumpster, or on someones plate, or maybe in a chum pot. A#1, you've been around for a long time, it seems. Why is this a great thing? How was the fishing in all other areas of the striper coast this year, last year, the past 10 years. I figured, an educated/experienced angler, would have a better grip on what is happening to our speedily shrinking biomass. Please tell me why it was a good thing. So anybody with a rod can kill multiple breeders in a day? Or, because there is money to be made by tackle shops? One can only dream that those fish never come near that poachers ditch ever again! Poachers ditch, has a nice ring to it, methinks.

  6. just carry the bucktails, one pencil, and one polaris. anything beyond that in M is useless during day forays. good luck, i miss that place alot. nothing like a few big johnny burgers after a day of crushing schoolies. and the shake aint too bad either.
  7. Glad you are ok. How many other boats were out there with you that day?
  8. here is your explanation: 1) the weight of these fish was/has been/and always will be, greatly exaggerated by half assed chest thumpers. total fabrications and lies. - this handles the 'oh i caught ten 50's this year' crowd 2) the striped bass biomass has been in the process of and is going to continue, to take the most precipitous and drastic decline seen since the 1970's. - this handles why all the biggest and best fish were in ONE place. If you need proof of statement #2, pick up some books, and get to reading. Find out what the striped bass has gone through to get to where it is today. Don't listen to some jamoke, who only cares about how much money he made off the backs of bass this year. Don't listen to some new fangled jamoke who only fishes the canal and thumps his chest like he did something important today. And certainly, don't listen to the other jamokes, who think all things known to mankind are in their tiny little brains. Listen to the heartbeat of nature, and especially to the heartbeat of our oceans. Our oceans are dying, and the severe decline in striped bass recently, is a symptom that cannot be ignored by responsible fishermen. .02
