Don't turn the striped bass fishing over to the commercial businesses. This is one of the last fish that is great fishing for private citizens.
Don't forget it wasn't too long ago that their were limits on size because the stock was becoming depleted because of over fishing(commercial).

Let me,and other little guys the pleasure of fishing these great sport fish.
