Thread: Old Lyme Stripers

  1. #1

    Default Old Lyme Stripers

    I just read they have thousands of dead striped bass dead in Old Lyme. They think a very low tide during the real cold snap trapped them with no way to deeper water. What a shame.

    Agreed, but I am sure this is a drop in the bucket when compared to illegal harvesting.

    The fish that winter over in ct, ri and ma are mostly prereproductive females and a few larger females that will not spawn this year. The real issue that striper fanatics should be concerned about is recruitment in Chesapeake bay. Numbers of spawning fish are irrelevant if there is very little recruitment.

    Yes. This incident is unfortunate, but a mere blip on the radar. Thanks for the insight.
