President Gerald Ford signed the Magnuson-Stevens Fisheries Conservation Management Act on April 13, 1976, culminating a sad period in American history during which massive foreign fishing fleets destroyed our marine resources as close as 12 miles from shore. There was no Recreational Fishing Alliance to turn to in those days, so I called together those party boat captains plus sportsmen and conservationists aboard Capt. Les Baletti's Palace II at Hoboken on a February night in 1972 to form an organization to fight for a 200-mile limit just as Ecuador had done to protect their waters from American tuna seiners.

We chased the MACKEREL for many miles today without finding them so unless another body of MACK's show up we are going to switch over to STRIPER fishing. WE WILL BE STRIPERS FISHING ON FRIDAY The water is starting to warm up and there have been some STRIPERS caught the past several days so we will be fishing for the them starting on Friday.
Gary Quon, of Tady Lures, had received a photo of a nice striper that Cat. Unfortunately, there were gale warning up for south winds offshore as this was written -- and it appears it will be windy every day through Monday.
That should be perfect for chasing stripers in Raritan Bay, or even for offshore fishing before the winds change -- though it will be very cold before the sun gets high in the sky. Capt. Vinnie Vetere hasn't started running his Katfish Carters out of Great Kills as yet, but he's very happy with the fishing vacation he enjoyed at Zancudo Lodge in Costa Rica.
