I'll keep 1 if deep hooked (won't survive) or 1 for the grill here & there, like a planned cookout with family &/or friends. Mass has a 1 fish > 28" limit per day. Personally I wished we go for a 'slot limit' like the state of Maine has, that protects the breeding females. Where an angler can keep 1 fish per day measuring between 20 and 26", but if you're lucky enough to catch a striper > 40", you can keep that as a trophy fish. Their Marine Fisheries report that most Maine anglers release the big ones.Do you keep them where you are?
