I would have liked a 18-28 inch slot limit. Itís going to be difficult to stay below the high side on this with a gun.

Seems to be part of the point... trying to confidently size a 28-35" slot fish is difficult enough that it may cause many average joes such as myself to abstain from shooting bass when this goes into effect. I will say my personal feelings are related to all the science showing low stock assessments.

wow judging a bass inside this limits is going to be way too hard they should just leave the 28" over limit or make it 28-35 for Rod n reel and keep it 28"+ for spearfisherman
mean while comercial netting guys can take all the bass they want..
also now is mandatory to use circle hooks too what next limit on fishing line to 6pound test for bass too... they claim the stock is low we see the real numbers of bass out there. we get to see thousands of bass swimm by owr heads all the time there numbers are not low like they claim this is some bull

I agree it'd be a challenge, but my concern was that they'd ban taking striped bass altogether, so glad that did not happen.
