Correction.... Commercial season starts at night before the day of. :dismay:

 

I also wonder how much of that quota they're gonna fill this year. There was a struggle to fill it last year. I don't remember if that quota ever got filled. This year it's 869,813 lbs of striped bass to catch. That's about 41,000 fish averaging about 21lbs. That's a lot of fish!

Those poaching operations are an all year event

I heard that people are now catching fish all year and wrapping them and freezing them whole to sell them during commercial.:dismay:

I absolutely believe that. I heard rumors of that a few years ago. If frozen and thawed properly, those fish will be almost discernible from fresh. I don't know how you'd stop this?

They won't hit 50% of the quota this season.    Anyone want the over/ under on 50%?

I believe you.  Did they end up adding the unused portion of last years quota to this year?

The bet to wager, is this the last season for commercial bass fishing in MA??

What kind of logic says to use last years unused quota for this year. I want to know who thought that was a good idea. What's the point of having a quota

I think they will beat 50%. Season may be extended and extra days added, but they beat 50%
