Release A Breeder: Guide/Captain Application


I agree to promote to my clients the release of all breeding size striped bass of 36 inches or greater in size. I understand that I can either send in applications for my clients or can encourage them to do it themselves. If they apply themselves, as long as they say that they were guided by me, I will receive credit for the guiding. This does not mean that my clients cannot keep a breeding size fish. It simply means that I will suggest to them that striped bass need these large breeders to remain in the population, and that I encourage them to release the fish. The final decision is the client’s.

My name will be listed on the Guide’s/Captain’s page, and a total will be kept there of all breeders released on my boat whether or not the individual angler pays for and receives the individual certificates and decals.

By submitting this application I agree to endorse the conservation and game fish goals of Stripers Forever and agree to be entered into the membership database. No signature is required, just fill out and submit the following application.

Welcome to the official web site for Stripers Forever, an all-volunteer organization dedicated to making the striped bass a gamefish. By eliminating commercial exploitation of the #1 recreational saltwater fishery on the east coast, over 3,000,000 recreational anglers will enjoy the social and financial benefits that will come from an improved striped bass population.


Stripers Forever advocates for the conservation and responsible stewardship of wild striped bass along the Atlantic Coast.

Stripers Forever, a non-profit, internet-based conservation organization, seeks game fish status for wild striped bass on the Atlantic Coast in order to significantly reduce striper mortality, to provide optimum and sustainable public fishing opportunities for anglers from Maine to North Carolina, and to secure the greatest socio-economic value possible from the fishery.
