Nice, this is great that they got caught. But, How many others out there are doing the same thing. We need to report all violations to the police.

I just read the article in the Lowell Sun tonight and would love to know the names of these asshats. here is a link to the article in the Sun

Posting this to the hall of shame is a must! Any mods that can do that?

Dont hesitate to report anyone!!!!

So awful that people do this kinda stuff. If I saw someone do this I would not hesitate to call the police, its disguting. They don't seem to realize those laws are there for a reason.

My grandpops told me that where we used to fish in San Luis Res, there was a group of people that would come by at night with a net that had to be a good 100 yrds and just sweep through the water and pick up the stripers. To this day they still haven't been caught! How sick is that! If I ever go back to Cally and see that sh*t I'm going to call the Fish & Game SWAT team on their ass.

:rambo: :assault: :pistols:

I'm glad to see the Lowell Sun has reported on this. Perhaps it will send a message to the few in the Lowell community commiting these crimes and that these criminal acts will not be tolerated and will be dealt with.

I searched the Lawrence Eagle-Tribune for any related stories, specifically the one relayed by the Lowell Sun about the two Lawrence people who were caught twice poaching stripers. Since I didn't find anything, I wrote a small blurb to their "Sound-off" section. Here's what I wrote.

To the Eagle-Tribune
Recently there was an article in a Salisbury newspaper and again in the Lowell Sun concerning poachers of Striped Bass. 14 people all-residing in Lowell committed the most recent offence. The Lowell Sun article also conveyed a previous offense perpetrated by two Lawrence men. The article goes on to report that many of the offenders are from the Lowell and Lawrence areas. I applaud the Lowell Sun for reporting these injustices. I have searched your web site and have not seen any related stories. I'm hoping that I just missed it.

It's important that the public be made aware of these crimes so that more people, not just other fishermen, can aid the game wardens in controlling these criminal acts. More specifically, I'm writing to your newspaper because we the public need you to send a message to the poachers in the community you service. The message being the perpetrators of these criminal acts will not be tolerated. That the public is watching and that offenders will be reported and dealt with.

Stripers forever.org emailed out the following comment on James Allens article about salisbury poachers in its newsletter.

Stripers Forever members -

One of problems with a legal commercial striped bass fishery of any size
is the cover that it provides for an illegal one. While commercial
fishing cheerleaders on the ASMFC make zero allowance for the black market
catch of striped bass, every regular bass angler knows that it exists, and
in a big way. The following article is just more proof of the illegal
A few months ago Stripers Forever commented negatively on Massachusetts
proposal to allow the sale of small wild stripers in Massachusetts. It is
certainly bad enough that small wild bass are legally taken commercially
anywhere, but to allow their importation into a state like Massachusetts -
where the minimum recreational fish is 28" - just makes it easier for
restaurants or fish dealers to market stripers that were taken illegally
from within their own state waters.
Stripers Forever is putting the finishing touches on a version of our now
well-known and highly-regarded Southwick Study that will be specific to
just the state of Massachusetts, the state with the largest coastal
commercial quota. It will show that the continuing a commercial striper
fishery in Massachusetts will cost that state many millions of dollars in
unrealized economic activity, and several thousand year round jobs. It's
a lot to give up to allow a comparative handful of guys to fuel up their
boats and beach buggies with the proceeds from the bass they sell during a few weeks each summer.
