Default Female striped bass Vs. the Male

According to the Maryland DNR, a study that was done from various fish caught in the Chesapeake Bay regions in 1957 and 1958 highlights 2 facts.

(1) beginning at 3 years of age, the female is larger than the male at the same age. and (2) males do not live as long as females. Very few males over 8 years of age were captured; none were found among large fish over 11 years old. Therefore virtually all "jumbo" striped bass appear to be females. Their weight to length calculated data you find in all the weight to length charts were derived from annular rings of scales taken from striped bass caught in the Chesapeake.

All of the more recent tagging studies support this analysis. The most recent class of fish as well. The last huge class was 1981 1982 when the world record was broken 4 times.

According to their data it appears that very few males live to be older than 11. That would of course rule out any fish over 38 inches being a male. Doesnt sound reasonable but thats what the report says.
