Commercial bluefin tuna fishermen in the General category will be able to land three large medium or giant bluefin tuna ((over 73 inches) from June 1 to August 31 — up from the present one per day. This also applies to the Charter/Head boat category for boats with a commercial sale certificate while fishing commercially.

The weekend outlook remains good for Raritan Bay stripers plus sea bass in the ocean. A small craft warning is up for Friday with south winds at 10-15 knots plus gusts to 20 along with possible showers and thunderstorms.

The photo below relates to striped bass fishing on Chuck Many’s Tyman from Highlands when the Wakefields were aboard this week.
