gives you an idea of how old those Bigguns are !


Male stripers are shown in black. Beginning at three years of age, the female is larger than the male at the same age. Males do not live as long as females. In this study, very few males over 8 years old were captured; none were found among large fish over 11 years old. Therefore, virtually all "jumbo" striped bass appear to be females. These results are based on calculated data derived from the examination of annular rings of scales from striped bass caught in various regions of Chesapeake Bay during 1957 and 1958.
