By now everyone has probably seen the picture in Dave Pickering's column of the remains of a dozen schoolie stripers that were filetted at the Charlestown Breachway recently. I won't copy it here because it is extremely disheartening to look at. I'd like to think the culprits were out of state visitors, but who knows for sure. Whoever it is, they need to be caught and banned from fishing in RI (or anywhere for that matter). How could anyone do something like this, especially with news about depreciating striped bass stock.
Dave posted RI DEM Enforcement phone number which I thought was a good idea if anyone needs to update their contacts - 401-222-3070
