This nice 16 inch striper is the first of my 2015 season. MD just changed the regulations from a 18 to a 20 inch minimum.
Personally, I wish they would have dropped the minimum length to 16 inches and also reduced the daily limit from 2 to 1 fish per day per person.
This guy took my rattletrap deep and may not have been viable after I released him. If the law was different, I could have a nice dinner for 2 but as it is he may just end up crab food.
