    I remember when Don Zahner was soliciting partners in NYC for peanuts to start the mag. Hope his heirs got a pc of this. Mag has declined in my opinion. Less literate writing about the sport, more like a Sears manual on how to fix your lawn mower.

    We as sportsman are descimating the stripped bass fish stock total larger commercial taked. The fish stock is about to,or already reached the point of no return.
    It is time for us to stop fishing them or at best barbless hooks along with catch and release backed by heavy fines and taking of fishing license. I for one do not want stripped bass to go the way of the passenger pigon.
