Yes, just kept a 38” fish the other night (first one I’ve kept in about 20 yrs) because I promised s good friends father I would get him one. Have absolutely no desire to kill another one with the current state of the the striped bass population!

Something that has lived that long wow man I would just let it go.  I keep one every few years anyway,  been thinking of going all catch and release recently.

Would like to think I would release it, but can't answer that until it happens. I think I would try to get a couple pics and quick measurements to have a mount recreated, hoping the fight didn't finish it off.

I’d get my pics, max out my hand scale and let her go....prob to just have some googan on a party boat jig her up the next day. But at least it’s not on me, can’t really make the argument for harvest either as the bigger anything gets from deer to fish the worse the meat tastes (maybe some exceptions like tuna).
