Closure of Black Sea Bass Fishing
Written by Rod Houck

Black Sea Bass NOAA announced today the temporary closure of the black sea bass recreational fishery in federal waters north of Cape Hatteras, N.C., for 180 days in response to recent landings data that showed recreational fishermen may catch more than double their annual quota by the end of the year. The closure will commence Monday, October 5, 2009.

Landings data and scientific analyses show recreational fishermen have reached their quota and could exceed their 1.14 million pound harvest limit by as much as 84 to 225 percent if the recreational fishery is not closed.

An independent body of federal and university scientists recently determined that the black sea bass stock has been rebuilt. However, both the scientists and the Science and Statistical Committee of the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council have cautioned against increasing fishing of this stock for several reasons, including the complex and poorly understood reproductive cycle, and limited information on life span and important habitats for this species. The Council recommends catch limits for black sea bass in federal waters.

NOAA understands and predicts changes in the Earth’s environment, from the depths of the ocean to the surface of the sun, and conserves and manages our coastal and marine resources.

Fishing Saltwater
Fishing traffic may see a significant decrease around New York City once the mandated
license takes affect.

Is this what a picture from a New York waterway is going to look like once the Recreational  Marine Fishing License is mandated in two weeks? If the nominal fee of $10 rapidly increases  like the State of California's marine license, who knows for certain?

Last Wednesday, I opened my mail to a letter requiring already licensed party and charter boat  operators for the State of New York to purchase an additional license they call the Recreational Marine Fishing License. It costs $400.
Commonly thought of as a saltwater Fishing license by the angling public, my research tells
me that major confusion lies on the horizon as this is clearly a vehicle by some northeast
states to create extra revenues through existing saltwater fisherman.

IBSP Fall StriperJason DeCarlo thought he would take the day off to meet up with some friends from PA Thursday. As the plans fell through, He decided to fish instead with his buddy Tom.  They stopped at Betty & Nicks for some bait and were on their way.  Jason said,"John wasn't proud of his stock of clams, but they took some from the bottom of the bin anyway".  The boys headed in to the park and were on the sand around 11:30am.

Jason and Tom fished the outgoing tide with high being around 7:20 this morning.  There was a lot of wood on the beach that washed up.  They parked next to a chunk that was about 100+ lbs. 100 yards North of the Judge's Shack.  Water temp. was around 72 with a steady breeze from the North/NorthEast. 

Deadsticked 2 rods with clam and bunker holding decently with 6 oz, they hooked up with a short dogfish, and a sea robin fairly quick.  Jason then casted out with double clam on a hi-lo rig and went to get the second going when the 10' rod doubled over and started taking the spike with it.  He Picked up the rod and BANG!, hook set, drag sucking.  Tom and Jason looked at each other knowing there was something nice on the other end of the braid.  Jason got the drag set and started reeling in.  Jason said "My rod was bending like I've never seen it bend before. A lot of WOOT WOOTING was going on during the fight.  A good 5 minutes later and my first Striped Bass ever was escorted onto the sand!  Grabbed my tape after showing my catch proudly to a passer-by.........38".  After a good 3 minutes of fist pumping and five slapping, ol' stripey hit the cooler."

Jason left Tommy on the beach and proceeded to weigh in at Betty & Nicks.  In he walked with his cooler and said "...Clams seem fine to me!"  John threw the fish on the scale, 15 Lbs. 7 oz......Shot a video, and back to the beach he went. 
They finished the day off with a few more birds and dogs, and called it a day.
