Striper NEWS<<<<.......<<<<<On Thursday, the New Jersey Marine Fisheries Council approved an option for a two-fish limit for the 2015 striped bass season. The approved option allows for one fish between 28 to 43 inches and another fish at 4...3 inches and above. The size and bag limit must now meet with legislative approval.

The Council was considering the nine original options contained in the Draft Addendum IV, which calls for a 25 percent reduction in the recreational harvest of striped bass, plus two other options of one fish between 29 from to 36 inches with another over 36 inches; and one bass from 28 to 42 inches with another over 42 inches.
