The regulations are so complicated now I want to make sure I am understanding them correctly. If I am understanding the regs - the change for 26"+ fish is only for the section of the Pungo north of the 264 bridge.

Does this mean it is still 18" - 22" with a limit of two and 1 of which can be over 27" everywhere else in the Pungo and Pamlico??? Or did that change too?

I wanted to go fishing this weekend without my lawyer....

It covers all inland waters of the central-southern striped bass management area. Here is a link to ncwrc.

Here is a link to maps of designated coastal, joint, and inland waters.

In the Pungo River it will also include basically all tributaries with the exception of Slades and Fortescue which are considered coastal waters in their entirety.

There is a lot of water that is designated as inland that is mostly fished for saltwater species which can add to confusion so take a good look at the maps that plugneck linked above.

Thanks, y'all. This clarifies it a little better for me from DMF - http://portal.ncdenr.org/web/mf/recreational-fishing-striped-bass-information
I'm glad they're trying to give them a chance to spawn.
