One of the dudes I work with showed me a picture of a nice striper bass.... 

I said "that's a nice striper bass..."

 

And I meant it. 

 

Do I need to tell him I'm "outraged"...? 

Should I "outraged" at myself? 

If the answer is yes to any of those questions.... Can you "outraged" at me real quick.. That way I can clear my conscience before I get to the office.... 

 

 

 

Haha...Its easy for those behind the keyboard. The face to face interaction isn't there. I would like to see these folks go around on a crusade and tell others what to do and see how that works out.

You should be totally ashamed of yourself for sharing some of your happiness with us.

The guys here posting pics generally aren't the bad guys.....they're stewards of the sport as much as those throwing shade.......

It's beyond stupid.

Sorta like if i see side boob i look

only it's throwing poo when they see a stripah pic.

 

The only thing it'll encourage is making avid posters spend time elsewhere than on Stripers Online

3 days ago i kindly told a tourist on the beach to make up his mind about his fish. he had it out of the water for longer than i feel you should and told him either put it in the cooler or the water. He released it with no animosity towards me. There is a time and a place for everything. And youre right doing it on the internet is just childish.

I just removed a bunch of posts and one person (from this forum) who can't participate without off topic name calling and insults.

 

Couple things - if someone posts a picture of a striped bass they obviously caught legally, whether they keep it or release, don't be the tool that jumps up on your soap box and starts lecturing them. I know legal/illegal is a real low bar to set for stewardship of such an important natural resource, but it is the bar we set. Someone clearly and obviously breaks the law, you are welcome to politely and respectfully let them know in a manner that would help them better understand the law in hopes they won't break it again.

 

And when someone obviously is NOT breaking the law but are instead sharing a nice fish or happy memory, it's not your place to snuff out their candle so you can feel more important. Your conservation shaming is off topic and inappropriate. You want to start a new thread and talk about conservation, do it - please. Those conversations are important. But DO NOT derail another person's thread - it's their thread - they established the topic - you want to talk about something different, start your own thread.  Thank you.

You are a strange man. Why do you even know these obscure animal sex laws?

Holy crap that’s a pig

you wouldn’t think something that fat could swim fast enough to catch a spook - there had to be a very long pause to let her catch up.

Most everyone who is on here is passionate about these fish, and folks are getting concerned.  We should be beating up the people who create the regs and dont even enforce what are the rules instead of folks who put time in to catch and release.
