Mass proposes new rules to help striped bass

fly fishing for striped bass

The Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries (DMF) will be proposing to implement two new conservation measures for the striped bass fisheries aimed at minimizing the number of fish that are killed through hooking and releasing.

The proposed measures would prohibit the use of gaffs and mandate the use of in-line circle hooks when using live or cut natural baits.
