No fishing report today

Did not go out this morning as I was on Mike Sheppards radio fishing show at 7am. Striped bass situation and Fluke were discussed
Striped bass public meetings are ongoing until end of month on East Coast.Public Comment will be taken until Sept 30th…If you have an opinion make it public now or don’t complain
Fluke situation for 2015 will depend on how feds move ,do we stay with regionalization ?? ,which will continue to hurt NJ and especially South Jersey fishermen OR do they allow states to go back to State by State and that probably won’t be decided on until late in the year
Letters to NJ Federal polictians( Senators and Congressmen) would help in this situation,we need their support IF we are to return to state by State and have the potential of splitting the state. IF regionialzation stays the chances of putting South Jersey in the Delaware region is less than 20% as all States must vote on that change and I don’t think NJ has enough support to get this past
There is a meeting with Feds on Sept 29 at 6pm in Somers Point city hall where Feds will review a potential long term look at fluke regulations as opposed to year to year. This is a 2 year study and currently they are looking for public input
SO IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THE BETTER REGULATIONS FOR FLUKE YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER ATTENDING THIS MEETING even though it is just the beginning of a 2 year study
Hopefully I will get back out in morning but that will depend on weather,there appears to be some changes on the way along with some rain and wind so we shall see
