Release it...I don't need a mount to prove anything, it's about the salt air, the hunt, tuning your intuition into knowledge, bending a rod and maybe (just maybe) dinner.  I'm single, so even a 28" striper is too much for a meal and maybe one leftover lunch. I just won't eat fish multiple days in a row and freezing it  defeats the flavor.  Because of these points, stripers, for me, equal 100% C&R.  To each his own within the limits of the law.  I wish you wouldn't take big breeders like from the OP but it's your option.  But if you're not going to consume the meat, if all that you're going to do is hang the fish's corpse off of your ego, I implore you to instead, take lots of pictures, get some good measurements, get a quality foam mount with some nice frames for the snapshots and display them together.
