Default Striper Swipers - Westchester County

Striper Swipers - Westchester County
On March 11, ECOs Tompkins, Thibodeau, and Franz conducted a plainclothes fishing detail focused on anglers taking out-of-season striped bass. The Officers patrolled George's Island Park in the town of Cortlandt and Croton Landing Park in the village of Croton-on-Hudson. During the detail, the ECOs observed several anglers taking and keeping out-of-season fish. The ECOs issued 10 citations for violations including possessing out-of-season fish and fishing without a valid license. The Officers seized 42 striped bass from violators and recovered 38 striped bass from large black garbage bags concealed in a nearby wooded area. Several fish were released back into the Hudson River to survive another day and the rest of the fish were donated to a local Wolf Conservation Center.


Catch Undersized Fish, Pay Sizeable Fine - Westchester County
An angler busted for taking undersized striped bass last year paid a hefty fine in the Village of Croton-on-Hudson Court. On Sept. 1, 2020, ECOs Tompkins and Crisafulli were patrolling the Hudson River when they noticed several groups fishing. The officers began checking each group for licenses and any fish caught. ECO Tompkins checked the bucket that contained many fish, including white perch. A closer look found 17 undersized striped bass in the bucket. New York State regulations restrict anglers in the Hudson River to one fish per person with a size limit of 18 to 28 inches. One of the anglers in the group took the blame for all the illegally caught fish and was issued two tickets: one for possession of undersized striped bass; and another for possession of over the daily limit of striped bass. The fisherman pleaded guilty to both charges and paid a fine of $900 for the violations.

Many thanks to the ECO's in this case. These rat bastards need to pay big time for the abuse and should be banned for life. The majority of us would take 42 pictures and be sure to release the fish unharmed for our children and grandchildren to have a chance to experience striper fishing. Their names and photos should be posted publicly.

They can not be banned they are not even smart enough to get a license that’s free.

Between dirtbags like this and the dirtbags taking 100’s of herring a day it’s no wonder our fishery is hurting. I know they don’t do as much damage as the commercial fisherman but it still does damage. Thank to the DEC Officers
