Understand that hybrid striped bass must be 18 inches long or longer. The hybrids in the posted pictures appear to be too short. A 17 and 1/2" long hybrid is not big enough and must be returned to the water. If a game warder should see the pictures, someone might be in trouble big time. Do not kill hybrids that are too short. We need the opportunity to catch big legal hybrids in the future.
"Freedom" is not free. Many men died to bring freedom to you and to me. Some of them sang: "...Christ was born across the sea with a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me. Entitlement programs are not free. Someone did the work for you and for me.
