A posting yesterday on njfishing.com revealed there was massive abuse of conservation regulations during the fall. An officer from the N.J. Division of Fish and Wildlife Bureau of Law Enforcement noted at the recent Marine Fisheries Council meeting that over 200 summonses were issued in just one month last fall for over-limit stripers. Worst of all, that was probably only the tip of the iceberg. It’s the sacrifices by anglers that have led to the great striper fishing of recent years. Hopefully, those cases will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
A gale warning is up from Friday morning through late in the night. North winds of 20-25 nots plus gusts to 35 increase to 25-30 with gusts to 40 knots in the afternoon.
Jeff Merrill reported a fine trip yesterday with Fish On out of Sailfish Marina on Singer Island, Fl. as they went one for two on sails along with some gaffer dolphin up to the 35-pounder shown before adding some bottom fish.
