These regulations do not bother me. I grew up in a NY moratorium for striped bass. I think that some measures like this are necessary.

I saw 3 keeper bass (NY 28 inches and larger ) floating dead in my canal earlier this week. Not cleaned - nothing taken off them. This is such a waste of a resource.

I’ve also witnessed over a dozen large fish belly up around the trolling fleet the last couple of weeks....... strange, it’s not something I remember seeing before.

And at least suspend, if not end, commercial fishing for them.

I’d be ok with upping minimum keeper size up from 28” to something in the 30s. Would not have any issue at all with a minimum 35” at one fish per day per angler and a significant reduction in commercial limits but that proposed slot size limited at 35” sucks! It will result in more big fish, particularly out at Block Island dying then are currently being harvested by recreational guys....

I like the idea of a slot limit more than just raising the minimum size. Now we wont see hundreds of 40"+ stripers on bikes on good canal days and those block island spear fisherman will have to stop targeting the 40+ pounders.
Are there any changes to the commercial sizes? new regs for recreational 1 fish at 28-35" slot. Current MA commercial regs are 15 fish at 34" or greater. If commercial size limits remain the same, poachers will continue to take 15 monsters from block island and sell in MA. Id like to see a commercial slot as well.

You people that want to ban commercial bass season and make it a game fish are off the rails. Make sure you renew your Pew subscriptions. There are and have been shit loads of bass in federal waters.

the largest cause of striped bass mortality is catch and release.

The commercial sector takes the smallest part of the resource and its take is the most accurately counted.
Leave it alone.

” yea ! Make everyone stop catching them!except me,of coarse”
Same tired bullshit, every single winter from the user group with 10X the mortality as any other. It’s a fact, but envy,indifference and greed sometimes get in the way of those pesky facts.
You want to save bass? Don’t fish for them. There, wasn’t that easy ?

There is zero evidence to prove that.

Fish them till they are gone like other species..... something does need to change or else you it will not end well.
If you change RI, then MA will abuse, or commercial, or spear, etc. Figure out a common ground for all regulations

Please show me this in some data.

EDIT- I was posting at same time above chart was put up. So question I have is how do they measure recreational catch and release mortality? Seriously.

Every commercial fish caught and sold is tagged and documented-that's the law....ALL commercial fish have a paper trail..again, its the LAW
Tell me how they count rec fish? And the ones that die after released? And the charter/ party boat fleet (although monitoring is being mentioned with this faction)...And the ones, all sizes, caught illicitly and sold to restaurants, clubs, neighbors, etc...…

Absolutely !
When I take my limit of two fish, I get chastised by the sport fishing guy that “releases” all his fish. You see sport boats and charter boats catching fish all day .
How many of those fish don’t survive?
It’s a waste.
On the spear guys, please don’t target the breeders.
