I caught two, maybe three keepers all of last season out of 30 or so fish. One was just shy of 28 and the other two were maybe 22. I can't see keeping a 22 inch striper.
We caught MANY fish last season and only one legal 27" fish which we kept.
Now go figure, it was the only fish gut hooked using a circle hook no less
and we mixed them up with circle & J hooks..
There will be no circle hooks on my boat this year as we lost to many fish with them..
I'm not a fan of tourneys anyway..
