Just a reminder for you folks that stray south of the MD line. The limit is one striped bass per person in VA bay waters as of Dec. 21st. If you are fishing in the coastal waters you can still keep two fish per person.

I have a question for you..On the regs its says "1 fish of the 2 fish possession limit may be 34 inches or larger"...since there is no longer a 2 fish possession limit, you can no longer keep a fish 34" or over right??? unless they made a mistake writing the regs...

From the website
4VAC20-252-90. Bay fall striped bass recreational fishery.

A. The open season for the bay fall striped bass recreational fishery shall be October 4 through December 31, inclusive.

B. The area open for this fishery shall be the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.

C. The minimum size limit for this fishery shall be 18 inches total length.

D. The maximum size limit for this fishery shall be 28 inches total length, except as provided in subsection G of this section.

E. The possession limit for this fishery shall be two fish per person from October 4 through December 20.

F. The possession limit for this fishery shall be one fish per person from December 21 through December 31.

G. The possession limits described in subsection E and F of this section may consist of only one striped bass 34 inches or greater.


The way I read it is that you may keep one fish per angler either one between 18" & 28" OR one over 34"
