I think a good fisherman is someone who really cares about the fish, including where they live. Nature is important. Someone who fishes for them rain or shine, big or small, inshore and offshore.....a dedicated Striper Angler will reach a point where it becomes "a way of life", part of your personality, what makes you who you are, and it can become such a big part of your life that you seemingly schedule your seasons around them, etc. Someone who is first and foremost dedicated to the fishery and the protection of it, is what I consider a good fisherman.
