APRIL 4, 2018 - NEW JERSEY: 2018 FLUKE & SEA BASS OPTIONS from Paul Haertel, JCAA Board Member

Thanks to Paul Hartel of the JCCA for providing this information to anglers...
=================


Below are the options for fluke and sea bass that the New Jersey Marine Fisheries Council will consider at their next meeting on 4/5/18 at 5 PM at the Bay Av. Community Center located at 775 East Bay Av., Manahawkin, NJ. The public will have an opportunity to give their opinions before the council votes on which options to adopt.

A top priority for JCAA is to close the gap between when fluke season ends and sea bass season begins. We certainly don’t want to go seven weeks with little to fish for inshore as we had to do last year after fluke season ended on 9/5. I will post the final regulations on the JCAA FB page on Thursday evening. Please “like” our page to keep abreast of the regulations and other important fisheries news. Paul Haertel, JCAA Board Member – Past President
