El Nino has provided us with the nicest possible March weather, but few anglers seem to be taking advantage of it. Capt. Howard Bogan has room on Saturday's 1 a. m. limited cod trip of the Jamaica from Brielle.

Summer flounder regulations were already imposed on most of N. J. by the ASMFC as we are incorporated into a region with Connecticut and New York that will have the same limits as last year a five-fluke bag at a minimum of 18 inches. Bob Matthews said there were lots of anglers fishing from the pier and docks at Belmar Marina during the March 1 season opener, though he didn't get any reports from that area which produced lots of big flounder well over the 12-inch minimum and up to just over 4 pounds last fall when the two-flounder limit was easy to come by.
