With the fluke season ending today for the majority of recreational sportsmen and woman. Many feel cheated out of a long weekend of summer flounder fishing.. However, if you had the money to be the highest bidder for a RSA permit you will beable to keep fishing during a closed fishery..

Just doesnt seem right... first we're hit with 6 fish at 18" while commercial limits are at 14"s and closes sometime in Jan. Then the season doesn't include both holiday weekends and now if your willing to fork out a ton of $$$$ you can get a permit to keep fishing..

Yeah sounds just like the pay to play scam in politics!!

just not right!![down]

It is just like last year if you were fishing in the "governor's cup" tournament on Island beach you could keep keeper fluke after the season closed

And does anyone know just "WHO" owns these permits ???? Should be public info. I heard it was like 80 grand to own one and they are only a limited number of them granted.

Summer flukin has become a joke for the Recreational angler,I won't throw shots at any commercial guys but the politicians who let's just say have "interests" in the matter have caused the debockle. The whole way that the rec size and catch limits are figured is a complete farce.

The commercial rod and reel season opens in early April so you really dont know too much about it.His catch[the state gave me all the info on his landings]was staggering[wallmad]We are throwing back 17 3/4in. fish and hes in the boat next to us keeping EVERYTHING 14+[wallmad]And laughing about beig able to do so when other anglers question him on it.
