We ended up getting 267,135 fingerling stripers this year. A BIG THANK YOU to some of our board members for getting on the phone with VDGIF and making great things happen. We only received 211,000 first but after the calls we got the rest. Folks, we need to continue to grow our club and get some big names involved to help OUR striper fishery.
On a side note while out fishing I'm hearing a lot of people still catch and release. I'm hearing the words " I only had 5 KEEPERS". Please continue to educate these that are catch and releasing the fish, tell them about the 20 percent survival rate during the summer months. WE as a club are working on getting sign's at the ramps to help get the word out.
