Below is a quick note regarding striped bass regulations that was posted on our facebook page today. Standby for a much larger explanation of what this means, and more information regarding DNR's likely path forward.

There is plenty to say about yesterday's striped bass board meeting. The attached graphic shows Maryland's only CE proposal that is left as an option. Maryland DNR removed #1-#3 as an option.

Maryland DNR also stated that [email protected]" w/ no seasonal changes, but DNR's Assistant Secretary, Bill Anderson referred to this option as "Insanity" at last weeks SFAC, so it's pretty likely that Maryland DNR has NO intention of considering that option.

All items with a strike through will not be happening.

If DNR is serious about stopping discards in the summer, they will shift the August closure to July, when water quality is at it's worst.

Much more to come soon.

I fish a lot so I would be fine with 1 fish at 18" but I feel this unnecessarily restrictive to attain the 20% reduction goal. If they go that route they will get a very large reduction in harvest. To save the big spawners close the commercial season permanently or at least until the spawn is over. Also close the trophy season for a few years.

Totally agree!! They did cut the limits on the Trophy Season but why not have a moratorium for a few years??
