Mass has a slot now as does CT.  1 bass per day between 28-35".  That's brand new for this year.

Yep, same slot as Maine if I remember correctly?

Yes I think so. 

12 stripers is nothing to sneeze at Joe.  I'm going to start chucking large flies for them soon.

I had about 15 minutes this morning after dropping my better half off at work before I needed to head to work myself, so I threw some big topwaters (IMA Big Stik 175, if I would have had more time I would have tied on a Megadog or the big Daddy Mac Bomb for a bit) in the back cove this morning (high tide always treats me decently there). 4 blowups, hooked 1 that was decent but lost him when i slipped on the rock I was standing on and put slack in the line.

I hear they are catching bigger Kings in Ontario.   Kings 34" long are not to laugh at.  to bad to have to play with those small Strippers.

This season I have caught lots of 18”-26” Stripers . Jigging  bait from shore has been tough at times catching . As soon as you put a live Mac or mostly pollack you get bites. Then it’s back to the jig🤦‍♂️👎.

The slot limit is not 28" to 35"]  It's less than 35".   Why didn't they just make it 28-35????

Hi Joe, I went out to a Ledge this morning. I was able to catch 6 pollack for bait but couldn’t reach the mackerel from shore.I  Had 6 bites and landed 4 Stripers. No keepers this outing they were 22”-25”. The view and the sunrise was nice.

Great pictures. I don't have a camera and couldn't figure how to post them if I did. Fish are around but maybe not for long in my area. Saw about a 30 incher caught right by the dock where I launch.

One day you'll eventually use eels....then hopefully eels at night...then you'll be telling us about the 40lbers your landing!

I think you'll really enjoy using them.  Simple fishing cast out, reel in slowly.  If you are patient I'd take some time to rig eels too.  They keep well in kosher salt and can be fished aggressively like a plug.  Its absolutely amazing how hard stripers will smash them.
