2013 NJ Summer Flounder Regulations

Summer FlounderThe New Jersey Marine Fisheries Council voted unanimously on Thursday to approve a 122-day summer flounder season that will run from May 18 to Sept. 16 with a 171/2-inch fish and a five-fish bag limit for the 2013 season. The Council approved Option No. 2 from a possible choice of six options available. That option was the preferred choice of most fishing groups going into the meeting.

“It’s fair for the state,” said Greg Hueth of the Save the Summer Flounder Fishery Fund. Hueth said the regulations give the southern part of the state, where the fluking is good earlier in the year, a chance for a good season while providing northern New Jersey part of a September season, when the fishing usually improves.

Several of the options included a longer season, a bag limit of eight fish and an increase in size to 18 inches. However, concerns over quota overages associated with those regulations led to a decision erring on the side of caution.   Source. App.com

Mantoloking, NJ house that Sandy washed into Barnegat Bay

MANTOLOKING, N.J. — On the surface, things look calm and placid. Just beneath the waterline, however, it's a different story.Cars and sunken boats. Patio furniture. Pieces of docks. Entire houses. A grandfather clock, deposited in a marsh a mile from solid land. Hot tubs. Tons of sand. All displaced by Superstorm Sandy.
"We did a cleanup three weeks ago. Then when we went back the other day, you could still see junk coming up in the wash," said Paul Harris, president of the New Jersey Beach Buggy Association, which helps take care of beaches on which the group goes surf fishing. "They go and clean it again, and two days later, you have the same thing again. There's nothing you can do about it; you can't vacuum the ocean."
Coastal areas of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut are racing to remove untold tons of debris from waters hardest hit by the Oct. 29 storm before the summer swimming and boating seasons begin — two of the main reasons people flock there each year and the underpinning of the region's multibillion-dollar tourist industry...........Read Full Story Here
