Captain's Focus

 Paul Haertel of the JCAA reports the New Jersey Marine Fisheries Council will be meeting at 4PM on Thursday, March 3rd at the Galloway Township Public Library, 306 E Jimmie Leeds Rd, Galloway, NJ 08205. The regulations for fluke and sea bass are expected to be set at this meeting. Though public comment will be accepted, it appears that there will only be one regulatory option offered for each species. The NJ Bureau of Marine Fisheries worked hard to develop various options. They were tweaked a little at the Advisers meeting and the end result was that a clear majority of advisers supported the following options.      Fluke – 5 fish at 18" with a season beginning on 5/21 and ending on 9/25 --- except for Delaware Bay, where there will be a 4 fish limit at 17" -- and at Island Beach State Park where there will be a 2 fish limit at 16".      Sea Bass – 10 fish at 12.5" from 5/23-6/19, 2 fish at 12.5" from 7/1-8/31 and 15 fish at 13" from 10/22-12/31.      Striped Bass – An overview of the 2015 fishery will be given but the regulations, including those for the bonus bass program, are expected to remain the same.
