“The Amazing Underwater World of Gamefish: FEEDING FRENZY”
A Video Presentation by Mike Laptew: AKA The Diving Fisherman

You won’t need to slip into a wet suit or don mask, snorkel, and fins -- Mike Laptew, “The Diving Fisherman” will take you into the secret world of all your favorite saltwater game fish.

Remarkable new footage of striped bass, bluefish, fluke, tuna, and sailfish will show you how these apex predators actually feed. In addition to lots of great fishing techniques, Mike will also focus on the many different baitfish along the East Coast.

This insightful footage will help you choose the right lures and the right flies to catch more and larger fish.

Mike's presentation will be held at the Downstairs Theatre, Nashua Public Library (2 Court Street; Nashua, NH) at 10:30 a.m. Please come early, as seating is limited to the first 100 people. There will be a door prize offered. Admission is free of charge.

Public Hearing on Proposed Rule to Increase Striped Bass Limit

The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department will hold a public hearing to consider a proposed state rule change on increasing the daily bag limit for striped bass.

The proposed rule would increase the daily limit on striped bass to two fish. Currently, anglers may take one striped bass per day. The proposed rule also would set a new size limitation, specifying that only one of the two fish may be over 40 inches in total length. The minimum length, 28 inches, would remain the same as under current rules.

The hearing will be held on Wednesday, March 5, 2003, at 7 p.m., at the Urban Forestry Center at 45 Elwyn Road in Portsmouth. This is New Hampshire's only Public Hearing on this matter.
