I have to admit that I am a little surprised at lack of entries for the Fall Striperthon. I have not been actively fishing this fall as I am preparing for NYC Marathon and I found out early on I cant do both. (If someone is curious about why and what am I doing here is the link , warning its not fishing related http://act.autismspeaks.org/site/TR?px=4722477&fr_id=3831&pg=personal )
Having said that, my friends are having hard time getting few even “keeper” sized fish regardless if they are in MA or NJ. To some of you who are younger, I would offer the advice to fight for what you believe in when it comes to striped bass conservation. A lot has changed in the society since we fought for striped bass on the verge of collapse many years ago. What it hasn’t changed is the attitude of commercial and for hire sectors who still think that ocean is a bottomless pit God put on this Earth so they can pay their bills and vacation in FL in the winter. Yeah, they are some very good eggs in that business, but most are rotten to the core, and would kill a last fish in the ocean to make a buck that day.
But this post is not about that, although I felt I had to mention it. This is about congratulating the winner Jared Clairmont on winning Fall STRIPERTHON 2018 with 43″/29lb striped bass
Congrats Jared..you got some stuff coming your way
