The MA Striped Bass Conservation Bill hearing is set for Thursday, Jan 14th at 11 a.m. at the State House in Boston. Details and directions will follow in a separate e-mail.

Plan to arrive at the State House by 10:00 a.m. on the 14th for a pre-hearing briefing. The proceedings will probably last into the early afternoon.

All anglers who fish for striped bass in Massachusetts – whether they are residents of Massachusetts or not - are invited to attend and to be heard if they wish. The economic value of tourist fishing is an important part of this bill. So ask your fishing friends to join you. Remember there is great strength in numbers. This is YOUR CHANCE TO HELP US MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Thank you and look for a follow-up email in a few days with all the details.
