    2018 Fluke and Sea Bass Regulations Set

    At the New Jersey Marine Fisheries Council meeting on 4/5 the following regulations for fluke and sea bass were set. However, there may be a problem with the sea bass regulations as states to our north have filed an appeal with the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission and they are threatening to go out of compliance. The process is pretty complicated but they are going after a portion of New Jersey’s quota. Depending on the outcome of the appeal our sea bass regulations may or may not have to change. We will keep you posted as things develop further.


    Fluke
    5/25 – 9/22, 3 fish at 18" except that there are special regs for Delaware Bay 3 fish at 17" and Island Beach State Park 2 fish at 16".
    Sea Bass
    5/15 – 6/22, 10 fish at 12.5”
    7/1 – 8/31, 2 fish at 12.5”
    10/8 – 10/31, 10 fish at 12.5”
    11/1 – 12/31, 15 fish at 13”

    The New Jersey Marine Fisheries Council (Council)met at 5 p.m. on March 15 at the Stafford Township Municipal building where they took action on porgy and tautog for the 2018 season, while hinting at good things in store for summer flounder (fluke) and black sea bass in the coming weeks.

     

    BLACK FISH SEASON: Once made official by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), the following fishable days and bag limit will be in effect for the rest of the 2018 tautog season with a 15-inch size limit.

    Jan. 1 to Feb. 28 (4 fish)
    Apr. 1 to Apr. 30 (4 fish)
    Aug. 1 to Nov. 15 (1 fish)
    Nov. 16 to Dec. 31 (5 fish)

     

    Council also approved measures which would keep the porgy season open 365 days a year with a 50 fish bag and 9-inch size limit


    On the fluke front, the Council reported that ASMFC had approved New Jersey’s proposal for an increase in the length of season; the ASFMC technical committee also approved what one NJDEP representative said would amount to a “significant increase in RHL (recreational harvest limits)” for the 2018 season for recreational black sea bass. However, the Council’s advisory committees must first meet to review the approved options sometime in the next week, after which the Council will convene again on April 5 to review options with the public. That meeting will take place at the Bay Avenue Community Center at 775 East Bay Avenue in Manahawkin, NJ at 5 p.m.

    Shark Endorsement - HMS Angling or Charter/Headboat permit holders that wish to recreationally fish for and/or retain sharks are required to add a Shark Endorsement to their permit.  To obtain a shark endorsement, applicants must watch a short (3 minute) online educational video on shark identification and handling, and complete a quiz (7 questions).

    Charter/Headboat Commercial Endorsement - Charter/Headboat permit holders that wish to fish commercially for HMS must add the Charter/Headboat Commercial Endorsement to their permit.  Adding the charter/headboat commercial endorsement will subject your vessel to US Coast Guard commercial fishing vessel safety requirements. 

    See https://hmspermits.noaa.gov/news for more details.

    This past weekend the Stafford Twp PBA held their annual Striped Bass Tournament and 62 Boats fished it.  Considering the Wave and Wind Forecast that was a great turnout.  Anyway it is worth mentioning that The Beach Haven Marlin and Tuna Club was well represented.

    On Wednesday, December 14, 2016, members of the Mid Atlantic Fishery Management Council (Council) and Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (Commission) voted to move a new summer flounder plan through for 2017 which includes options to curtail recreational fluke harvest in the upcoming season.  Click here for more information from The Fisherman Magazine
