2017 Striper Report – Don’t You Hate It When The Fish Box Is Not Big Enough
It’s a real dilemma when the Chesapeake Big Stripers don’t fit into the fish box. Its even worse when you have more than one of these slugs that you have to deal with. But its a very good problem to have.
2017 is starting out to be a very good year on Chesapeake Bay. Captain Shawn with Never ENuff Charters has really been putting on the hurt to these big Spring and Early Summer Stripers. As of June 1st the Summer / Fall season has officially kicked off and the limt is “2 fish per person per day between 20-28 inches OR 1 fish between 20-28 inches and 1 fish over 28 inches” per the Maryland Fishing Regulations.
Per these regulations Remember it is illegal:
- To possess any cut up or filleted striped bass at any time aboard any boat on the tidal waters of Maryland. Striped bass must be landed whole.
- To use more than 2 hooks or 2 sets of hooks for each rod or line. Artificial lures or plugs with multiple hooks are considered 1 set of hooks.
