Release a Breeder Club

SF_FINAL_RAB_LOGO_01


About The Club

Welcome to the Stripers Forever Release A Breeder Club “RBC”. This program is designed by Stripers Forever to promote the release of large “breeding size” stripers which are mostly female fish. Current striped bass management practices have targeted large striped bass. The result has been a considerable decrease in the number of these large, old fish found in the population. Nature never intended it that way. Striped bass are the top predator in their inshore range, and historically it was not uncommon for individuals to live more than 20 years and spawn each year. This long spawning life is needed because conditions are often not suitable for the production of good year classes. The older fish produce many eggs, and when conditions are favorable to produce young stripers a robust spawning stock biomass insures that the waters will be well seeded with eggs. If conditions aren’t good the long lives of these fish and low natural mortality insure that there will be good spawning potential the next season. Unfortunately for the striped bass we have knocked this system seriously out of balance.
There are two categories, each with their own dedicated page for posting images and information on the breeder released. The first category is for Guides and/or charter boat captains who pledge to promote the release of breeders to their clients, the second for anglers who release a breeder while fishing with or without a guide/captain. Joining the club is free, and the rewards are recognition on the RBC membership pages of our website as well as the knowledge that you are doing your part to turn around the decline in striped bass.
There is no cost for anyone to participate in the program, however individuals will receive only one decal and one certificate per year at no charge. Guides can make unlimited applications for their clients using the angler application below, but every angler will receive only one free decal and certificate a year. For any angler to receive additional decals and certificates a $10 contribution using pay pal on our donate page is required for each fish submitted.

Membership Requirements

The minimum size for membership in the RBC is 36” total length. This is largely an honor system, though either a photograph of the fish or the name of a witness is required with the application. If a picture is supplied with the application we will publish it next to the name of the club member. The fish must be released alive and either left in the water or held out only very briefly for the picture. These are the only rules.
All angler names will be listed on the individual angler page even if fishing with a guide. The name of the guide will be listed next to the angler, though if the application is submitted by a guide or if the angler lists a guide in his/her application.

Applications

Below are links to our application forms where you will also be able to upload your image. Please send all questions to: rbc@stripersforever.org
ANGLER APPLICATION (Angler application is used for all fish applications whether made by angler or guide)
GUIDE APPLICATION (This application is just for guides to register for the program. Guides should register in advance of submitting a fish application)

Rewards

  • Anglers who release a breeder will also receive this certificate:
Stripers4EVERreleaseCertFINAL4x8FLAT

  • All individual anglers will be automatically be entered (1) time into a year-end drawing (December 2014) for a prize of fly or conventional tackle or a guided trip. All prizes are currently TBD. The number of drawings will be based on the number of prizes we have donated to us. Each member can only win one prize. The number of prizes and number of drawings is subject to change

Maine Deep Sea Fishing & Light Tackle Report with Super Fly Charters: April 1st, 2014

Nearshore Light Tackle Cod Trips: Bath, Maine!!!

If you plan to be in the area in May and want to get out on the water…Our light tackle inshore cod fishing trip is definitely something to consider!!!
a10In addition to the Striped Bass trips that we offer…We also offer bottom fishing trips to target Cod. Now when most folks think of Cod fishing, they think of long rides to the fishing grounds, aboard a crowded boat, fishing with broomstick tackle and super heavy jigs, epic tangles etc…..Well here at Super Fly Charters we have re-defined the art of Cod fishing with light tackle!!!…Located just off the coast of Maine lie some very productive fishing grounds. Shoals,  ledges, rocky pinnacles and steep drop-offs provide great habitat for Cod, Pollock and other bottom dwellers. We have spent a lifetime learning which areas are the most effective and we have scaled our tackle down to provide the most sport. 67789_1462147957612_3456186_nThe majority of these trips involve the use of very lightweight & sensitive spinning tackle that we spool with ultra thin braided fishing line so you can feel every thump. This tackle allows us to use much lighter weight jigs even in heavy current. Most anglers that choose this trip often combine it with one of my Striped Bass trips as a way to throw some tasty fillets on ice!! This trip is also very popular with families as it provides a great variety of bottom fish species and fast action…These trips are available to start at the beginning of May and run through the end of October!! If you feel the need to get in on some saltwater fishing before the Stripers arrive please get in touch with us for available dates.
