I'm sure you get 50 lb-ers in the woods, else your freezer would be empty

I come from a sub-culture of subsistence fishing and hunting. In that world the reason for fishing and hunting is the acquisition of natural foods. They have over-regulated fishing to the point where you can't do anything but catch and release: one striper of a size that hardly exists; selling fish is license required and complicated with seasons, bag limits, permits and allowable days. At least hunting you can go out, get something and bring it home and eat it -- celebrate one's skills at the dinner table. Of course hunting is also over-regulated where even if they give you a free hunting license, when over 70 where all you can shoot is a squirrel, they then sell you the animals one species, one number at a time. We just bought a buck tag, a doe tag muzzleloader. Then one each for shotgun. Four tags at $25 each -- $100 for each of us, after you buy the out-of-state license. Of course we could stay home.

reported 11/11 in the asbury park press:

The Den weighed a 58-pound striped bass for Jeff Fairbanks of Bradley Beach who landed it trolling bunker spoons off Asbury Park.

a 67 was caught off Jersey last week before the blow. Been a good amount of 50's on the Jersey boats this fall. I'd say half a dozen were reported thus far.

The big story since last week?s report is the 67.55-pound striped bass caught on a TGT rattle spoon by Tyler Lang aboard Capt. Vinny Vetere?s Katfish Charters out of Staten Island.

The count this year is the lowest I ever recorded. It could be that anglers today are more conservation minded, thus returning fish that tape out at over 50 inches which satisfies them before returning. If not taken to a weigh in, they are not counted in-spite of being caught. The angling society is no doubt in the midst of evolution.
