Been good Bob. I went back to work again. 4th time since "retiring".

Didn't fish at all this past season and sold my boat. That will all change next year. Hope you and your family are well. You had some rough times back aways.

No boat, back in the suds.

Make Striped Bass a Game Fish.
So youre dismissing what recs do at the Canal and the Block all summer long? Charters, party boats hammering away at big breeder bass Every. Single. Day. And then you have spearfishermen from around the world taking their pick of 40-50# fish at the Block, again, all summer long. Youre saying that type of pressure on those two biomasses isnt significant? Excuse me if I fail to see the logic in that.

While I dont agree with, and downright despise certain types of commercial fishing, Id say rod and reel is a drop in the bucket compared to rec harvest and most other comm methodologies.

I do agree that its been another terrible fall run for big bass, though. Tons of small fish so its hard for me to say the fishery is going to tank, but Im sure we all agree to some extent that the fishing should be much better.

The harvest numbers show that recs harvest substantially more bass than commercials. This was to even a greater degree when recs could catch bass from shore up and down the coast from about 2000 to 2010. One can argue that both are to blame, but it is factually incorrect that commercial harvest is solely responsible.

No, no, no. were 30 30, three zero.

I'm done for the year- will still try some freshwater stuff, and might be tempted into some river/holdovers but that's not really my kinda thing. wouldn't mind if they closed the rivers to fishing over the winter, actually

In my mind its early october... and I have lots of nights left ahead of me...
somehow this fall season got away from me, and my stats are the lowest they
have been in 15 seasons. 24" bass dominate my log book.
