island princess captree sailing schedule for 2019 season

for most of us, it’s one bass daily limit at 28 inches or greater… and… while drifting and casting live and rigged eels are traditionally methods used for bigger bass during the Fall season, believe it or not there are rumors that striped bass DO NOT look at the calendar if they see an American Eel in front of them. So, if you do use eels for bait tomorrow or anytime this season unless or until the DEC changes the rules on us, here are the current possession and size limits for  American Eels as well…
