Default save our future striper seasons

As you may or may not know dec is slowly leaning toward a moratorium, protecting herring and striped bass during the spawn ( in the Hudson River). They want to hear input from you.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today released a draft of the Hudson River Estuary Action Agenda 2015-2020, a six-year blueprint for conserving the Hudson River estuary and its surrounding valley. The Draft Hudson River Estuary Action Agenda 2015-2020 is available on DEC?s website at: www.dec.ny.gov/lands/4920.html. Public comments on the draft will be accepted until May 15, 2015. Comments may be emailed with ?Action Agenda? in the subject line to [email protected]. In addition, comments may be mailed to:
NYSDEC Hudson River Estuary Program, 21 South Putt Corners Road, New Paltz, NY 12561.

Oh joy.

If anyone wants to get more involved in protecting both striped bass and herring AND our ability to enjoy striper season, the time to act is yesterday. At the risk of tooting my own horn, I work in public relations, have a side gig in political consulting and founded a Second Amendment/anti-SAFE Act political action committee. I have some experience in the trenches and I'm willing to fight for this. If there are others who are willing to fight for sensible fishing regulations on the Hudson, please message me via this website. If anyone knows of any organizations that are already fighting to sustain our striped bass fishery, please let me know.

I know anything is possible especially in New York but how can the powers that b think that a moratorium on recreational guys is the answer?? Really? An angler who keeps one fish a day is doing more damage to breeding stock than commercial guys keeping hundreds?stripers aren't the only fish targeted during their spawn. I'm all for protecting the fisherie hell I wouldn't care if they made the river all catch n release for the run but to shut it down all together is ridiculous.Conservation is the CAREFUL use of a renewable resource!

I don't see anything in the draft Action Agenda that is particularly alarming. Good to see pictures of kids fishing.

I also responded to the DEC. I am okay with the slot limit... BUT (and I realize some people may disagree on this point) I would like to have seen them include mandatory (in-line) circle hooks for all bait fishing. If you have to throw them back anyway I would rather see people required to use hooks which are more likely to give a safe hook set.

I use a hook out made out of a 5/8 wood dowel. I can get the hook out of every gut hooked fish with no damage. The only hook I can't remove if gut hooked is a circle hook. They are great for live herring, but for a big chunk or a head chunk (pretty much all I use) most fish swallow the bait.

hone one end of an 18" dowel(5/8) to a flat point. Put a V groove in the flat end. when using, use a lip grip to hold the fish vertical (2 man job), the other person lines the V groove up with the line, slides it down to the hook, the hook will stick in the wood.With a taught line, push down on the hook with the dowel and pull out the hook, line, and dowel.

If you can, take a pic. I have some wooden dowel material here. I would love an easier way to un hook a gut hooked fish. The ones that do manage to gut hook I keep.. But with the new rules..

To each their own but I never mess with a gut hooked fish, smallies, large lippers stripers nothin, just cut the line, that fish will pass that hook faster than Arron Hernandez passing his gun to his girlfriend, lol, that's just wrong I know but true. It sucks and I get some crap from friends but I hate killing a fish I'm not gunna eat

I agree.....hooks are cheap and expenible. I've caught several fish with hooks that were almost dissolved and the fish looked fine. Sacrifice the hook because the longer you take to remove it the higher the likelihood the fish does not make it.
