I went out again this morning to work on my striper game since I've been a little off. I managed to land a dozen or so fish with the largest being the 22 incher shown.
I spoke to a couple of guys and at least one had the same concerns as me over the new 20 inch minimum. He said his "throw back" percentage is way up this year. I would have limited out twice today under the old regulations.
Let's hope most of the 18-20 inch catch and releasers are viable and will come back as 20+ fish next year.
