This Topic has just come up elsewhere and I
thought it was important to let our members know.

That in the New Jersey Fish & Wildlife 2004
Digest,it states that the proper way to
measure a Fish (Striper etc.)is from the
Closed Mouth to a Pinched (Pushed Together)
tail to obtain the greatest lenght...

The reason this is so important?

Say you catch a 27.5 or 27.999" Slot under
the New Regulations,If you measured that
fish without the pinched tail you think
you are fine.
Keeper Right ?
But push the tail together now it becomes
a 28.5 or 29" Bass, Illeagal Under The
Current NEW Regulations,(No Striper Between
28-34")... Be Careful How You Measure......

Check out this Link,that shows you how
to properly measure a Fish in N.J.

Give You Some Slack on This???

It also can work the other way. If you have a striper just under 34" and you pinch the tail to measure 34" or greater I guess it would be legal. Thanks for the info.
