You don’t have to tell fishermen to social distance – most of the time they’re already angling that way.

The Fishing News returns with an update on the migratory progress of stripers (they're here, and bigger ones are coming). And this year striped bass have a new limit. Fishermen are allowed to keep just one fish a day between 28" – 35".

Plus, we've got reports of a strong bite for black sea bass and scup.

More details in the 4-minute conversation below with Steve Junker and On The Water editor Kevin Blinkoff. Give it a listen.
