MA Fishermen are Struggling to Catch Stripers – Does That Mean We…

By this time of year, the Massachusetts’ commercial striped bass fishing season is usually in the books. After the late-June opening, the rod-and-reel commercial fleet usually tops off roughly 800,000-pound quota by the end of August. But this year, as of this afternoon, the quota is just over 71% filled.

At the current rate that the quota is filling up, Massachusetts Marine Fisheries projects that commercial fishermen would need to fish into October to catch the full 847,585 pounds of striped bass they have been allocated. And that’s if the notoriously fickle fall weather allows fishermen to get on the water enough to catch those stripers before they leave Massachusetts.
