Jersey Shore Fishing: Don't forget Thursday fluke public hearing:

As has been noted in my blogs, there is a very important ASMFC Public Hearing on regulations for 2017 in the Summer Flounder Management Plan that will be held after the Marine Fisheries Council Meeting in Galloway Township Library at 306 Jimmie Leeds Road at 6:30. Since all of the options will be a disaster for N.J. fluke fishing, recreational fishing organizations are calling for status quo regulations until the new baseline stock assessment is completed this year. A strong turnout may convince the ASMFC to turn in that direction.
