2020 Stripers/Rock Fish

Some of my friends went out to pre-fish for stripers and hit them pretty good. They caught five fish all together, the smallest being a mere 44". Here are some pics...
These are the guys I go out with every year.

Looks like some good cows. Hopefully the pressure on them will be lower and they can all spawn.

I thought you could not do that right now?
Is this in the bay?
Lots of changes this year.

I know they are seeing some legal size in the OC bays right now.

The rules as usual are confusing but you can still catch and release until Apr 1 from what I can tell.

Exactly

FYI, these fish were caught and released two weeks ago, when it was legal to catch them trolling single barbless rigs.

Unfortunately, the trophy fisherman heading off the big females like these are the reason their numbers fluctuate so much. Even worse is when later in the year they try and blame the commercial guys pound netting them for a living after the spawn for their depleted population 😕

Doesn't matter, if you want to "pre fish" you can no matter what you want to call it. Fact of the matter though is that many of these big rocks or any for that matter have a small chance of surviving after a fight like this even when you do release them. The same people will cry when the regulations tighten up. However you slice it, humans are instinctively animals and will hunt/kill things into exhaustion...
