The 2013 Massachusetts commercial Striped Bass fishery will open this Sunday, July 14. This year's quota is 997,869 pounds and commercial fishery limits will remain status quo.
For 2013, the open commercial fishing days are Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. On Sundays permitted commercial fishermen are authorized to possess and land up to 5 Striped Bass per day, and on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays they may possess and land up to 30 Striped Bass per day.
All commercial Striped Bass must be at least 34 inches in total length.
As with last year, Sunny's is licensed to purchase Striped Bass directly from permitted fishermen. We are looking forward to another great season.
