It's a different mentality down there. They get shots at bass, especially large, only during a short portion of the year, and that is a time of year (winter) that bad weather can make it hard to fish.

The guys down around the mouth of the Chessy are, from what I've seen, more inclined to kill fish because of this. It's not like Rhody or Mass, or even Jersey, where the fish are around for longer periods of time.

And I would note that anglers north of the Mason-Dixon line are not exactly a beacon of conservation on the issue. Every time I see a six-pack charter boat with five grinning idiots and 10 dead 35-pound fish, I want to puke.

Yes, I agree. Sport fishing needs a lot of work north and south. Many mind sets don't get it. I have distant family that take a charter now and then and catch monster stripers without knowing anything about what they are doing. "Johnny grab that!"

I caught a 35-pound bass once on a charter boat in Cape May. It was -- and I'm 100% serious -- way less of a challenge, and way less rewarding, then catching any fish in the surf. I've felt more pride, more sense of accomplishment, getting a runt schoolie on a teaser in the wash than I felt catching that fish.

It's true that doing it in the surf is the hard way.

Not only that but it costs a lot of money for a boat ride for which you can keep only one fish. I assume patrons are required to quit fishing when they do keep one fish; otherwise they are exceeding the limit. In all fish and game once you have filled your limit you are done fishing. Catch and release fishing is not an option once your limit is filled.

The Fisherman papers took stripers off the Dream Boat Challenge a long time ago. And the publication that used to do it just dropped stripers from their contest. Meanwhile down south they are holding kill tournements. The beat goes on.
