    Default 1 @ 32 Pledge

    From their site:

    The 1@32 Pledge

    The 1@32 Pledge is an interim step that we are proposing to help reduce the striped bass harvest. While catch and release is always preferred, the pledge is simple...in situations when you do not practice catch and release, you pledge to only take one striped bass per day at no less than 32". The 1@32 Pledge applies to fish caught from the surf or shore, on private boats, and party boats.

    We are hopeful that the Pledge can help to rebuild the striped bass biomass, one angler at a time, as we wait patiently for the ASMFC to act. Please consider joining us in taking the Pledge.

    We encourage you to share your Pledge with others via conversations, social media or other avenues. This grassroots movement will not only help striped bass, but will also serve as a ?wake-up call? to the ASMFC that we are serious stewards of the resource. Take the 1@32 Pledge.

    Seems to me lots more surfcasters are talking and posting about saving the Striped Bass population.
    I think this was a good idea. Like they state, an interim step, its a way to get people thinking, discussing the problem.
    A little more peer pressure.

    lol finchaser the meat man. I would like to see that johnny bucktails take this pledge. He could be an inspiration for all the kids his age. How many want to bet that it would never happen.

    ^^^^^ Is this a trick question? Which part- that he could be an inspiration for his generation or that he would take the pledge. I bet neither. Its all about hoisting those big slobs onto the dock when he gets back home for the kill pic. People like that will never be happy with just one.

    Thrilled to see a reaction on this site. I am also supporting the 1@32 pledge, but have a slightly different take that focuses on how we can also use social media to actually make a difference. This would never have been possible ten years ago. I would greatly appreciate any comments and suggestions. Please see 1@32 Pledge - New Weapon for Fisheries Management.

    Seems lots of fisherman are willing to "join together" for this Pledge 1 @ 32, and I would think they would for other groups or organizations that are rallying towards saving the striped bass population. They have the attention of a decent number of fishermen. I look at the pledge as a symbol of a number of people stating something must be done, the pledge is the start, it shows unity. Looking forward to whats next.
