Yesterday morning on my way to pick up my client I had slowed my boat down to check out a long point and when I got to idling speed I could not believe what I saw floating on the water at first light. I verified five striper's floating on the surface and there was possibly another one along the shore line. It is great sport, if you want to call it that, to fish for striper's at night using lights to draw the bait to the boat and then have a field day catching young striper's. Some fishermen catch them for food and others for sport. What they fail to realize is that when you pull a striper up from the deep and then release then back into 80 some degree water with low oxygen content, the stress of the fight and the water conditions creates a situation whereby the striper's odds of surving are slim. South Carolina is all their wisdom has placed a ban on catching striper's in the summer months on the Santee, for this reason. If I spotted five and possibly six striper's floating in a short period of time, you can imagine how many others that were nearby that I just did not see or take the time to do a survey of the area. I took some digital photo's of the fish, but it appears that the operator of the camera did something wrong or I just did not have enough light. It is legal to do what the fishermen did, but I don't find it to be a good way to manage the fisheries. What do y'all think about this?
