Striped bass “schoolie” or shorty

The other night we attended the ASMFC symposium on Striped Bass in Dover. Out of twenty people in the room only three wanted/commented to have heavy reductions to help rebuild the stocks. The rest of the room wanted either the least reduction or none at all. The link for the draft is below and is self explanatory. We are pushing for the most reduction to help rebuild the stocks and trying to keep away from any fish over 38 inches being kept. Let the big girls go to keep the breeder stock alive.
