Stripers for the Future

Via Moldy Chum:

"There is 8 percent hooking mortality rate for striped bass caught and released by recreational anglers in the marine environment."

John Tiedemann & Andy Danylchuk cover the proper care and handling of striped bass in the latest issue of On the Water  Given the vast amount of striped bass that are released every year (NY anglers released close to 1.5 million in 2011) proper handling is a critical component of the striped bass conservation effort.
