Don't know if all of you CT fishermen are aware, but this is the new reg as stated by the DEP:
Declaration of Regulation Change
April 11, 2003

Under authority of Section 26-159a of the Connecticut General Statutes and Section 26-159a-22 of the Regulations of Connecticut State Agencies, the Commissioner of Environmental Protection is authorized to establish or adjust, by declaration, closed seasons, length limits, creel limits, trip limits and trip limit adjustment values in order to comply with interstate fishery management plans adopted by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission. Such changes are implemented after a 30-day notice period.

In accordance with the aforementioned authority, the following changes in Department regulations will be effective on Tuesday, May 15, 2003.

Recreational Fishery Rules

1. Striped Bass length and creel limits for private recreational anglers and anglers on party & charter fishing vessels will be 2 fish at 28 or greater in length, per angler per day.

I've only listed the first change; others don't involve our usual target species, but if you'd like more info it's available at the CT DEP website.

This post is for informational purposes only. I'm not necessarily saying that I agree with the change from the slot.
