Latest NJ Saltwater Fishing Reports

  • 2015-02-05 Ristori Bay Head

    Driving back from that meeting, N. J. Governor's Appointee Tom Fote called to report that the Striped Bass Management Board had approved the various state conservation equivalency proposals, including New Jersey's which allows for both a 28-to-under-43-inch striped bass and another of 43 inches or more rather than the basic coastal reduction to just a single striper with a 28-inch minimum. The disparity of N. Y. anglers having a higher minimum than those in N. J. fishing the same waters was the driving force behind the ASMFC forcing N. J. into regionalization with N. Y. and Ct. last year, but there was so little sympathy with the same inequity in Delaware Bay that Fote couldn't even get a second in his effort to create a region to the south.

    Muffley doesn't anticipate any problem there, and is also working on getting legislative sponsors for those regulations as striped bass regulations can only be changed in N. J. through the legislature. Fluke regulations will also be decided when the Summer Flounder, Scup and Black Sea Bass Management Board meets from 3 30 to 6 30 on Feb. 4.
