I'm gonna put myself out there and tell ya that I didn't have a license yesterday. I just couldn't stay in and let the striper go unmolested. I went to Ocean's East and picked one up today. Are ya gonna head out to the bridge?

Hey Shoeless I thought C&R was out of season just like the C&E(catch&eat) season. Please correct me if I'm wrong. I wouldn't mind continueing playing with the schoolies even if I've got to throw them back. I just don't want to have to worry about Ranger-Rick looking over my shoulder with his ticket book in hand.

Yesterday is as it should have been for an illegal fisherman...SQUAT! I think today/tonight should be good with the winds out of the NNE and cool down. I'm legal as well, so the fish should cooperate.

Just double checked the regs:

B. It shall be unlawful for any person fishing recreationally to possess any striped bass while fishing in an area where or at a time when there is no open recreational striped bass season. Striped bass caught contrary to this provision shall be returned to the water immediately.

Here is another one that we should all be reminded of:

G. It shall be unlawful for any person fishing recreationally to transfer any striped bass to another person, while on the water or while fishing from a pier or shore.

Above copied from 2003 striper regs.

Chick's was a bust this evening. I casted the bridge for a while with no luck, moved to the jetty for a bit with no luck and back to the bridge with no luck. Birds were working about 3 lights out, way out of range. :(

Jay B,

It is Illegal to POSSESS or TARGET striped bass in the EEZ (waters between 3 and 200 miles off of the coast) I don't know about tickets for targeting but you CERTAINLY will get a FEDERAL ticket for possession of striped bass beyond 3 miles.
