I wonder what they intend to do, to replenish the fisheries or even if thats in the equation. In the comming years we'll see a marine license that won't be cheap. With the revenue from that will come more fish cops and a slew of regulation's to keep them busy and earning
I wonder if they plan to start hatcheries and stock the oceans?
Wonder if before I die will I have to buy a flounder stamp/weak fish stamp/whiting stamp/etc.

Or will they just regulate the recreational angler out of existence

I agree too!  Under regulated and mismanaged.  If it wasn't because a lack of Regs than it certainly was because of a lack of management of the species.  They need to find out why and what can be done.  I guess eventually, we may be able to add winter flounder to the same list whiting are on and soon to be weakfish Cry!

I'm sorry to bump an old thread, but what is meant by they are regulated (or under regulated) out of existence? Is there no more fishing for winter flounder in NJ waters?

If they are still fished for, is mid/late-March still the best season?

Thanks to anyone who can help out a winter flounder noobie Smiley!

Winter flounder season opens March 23 and closes on May 21. There is a two fish limit and they have to be at least 12 inches.  Tongue

Ah okay, thanks man. Even though flounder is by FAR my favorite fish delicacy, I'm a catch-and-release guy with just about everything, believe it or not, so the limit doesn't bother me. Smiley

Wow bucktail I'm glad the topic wasn't world peace. Thanks for the info my input is egg sinkers painted yellow or pink.Small pices of tape worm work well for me and small blood worms too. I use the sam set up as my shallow fluke rod especially with tjhe stronger currents and the smaller fish its important to me not to dead stick but hold the rod and don't be over anxious because then tend to slurp on the bait

I know this was a very old article but, I found it very informative. I see several people mentioned Manasquan/PP. I hope to have the boat in the water in the next two weeks or so.

Do you think the Manasquan is productive this time of year to just take the wife and kids out to catch a few? Would the sod banks before or after the railroad bridge be my best bet?

Do you know where I can get chum in the Manasquan area?

No need for any of that go buy 2 sand worms, drive to the bridge, drop down to the bottom, reel up flounder, repeat last two steps, go home with limit. thumbs up

Nice! I am just looking for something to wet the line. 2 fish to take home is ok for me. Who knows, maybe an unlucky striper could be found on a dead stick.

Grab a chum log at brielle b&t by the bridge in brielle.  I've never done that well with winter flounder but there is definitely a fishery for them in this area.  Upper barnegat seems to be alittle better on the whole, like the canal mouth or the mantoloking bridge.  I mostly look for whatever structure has the warmest water.  Unfortunately, the sod banks in the river do not really drop off to deep enough water to be fishable at most tides.
