Money talks!!![eyeroll]

Starting tomorrow and for the next 2 1/2 weeks, New York anglers won't be allowed to catch summer flounder, the popular fish also known as fluke that has long been a major engine of Long Island's recreational fishing industry.

But not everyone's cooling their heels at the docks.

A select group of charter and party boats have paid for the right to take customers out fishing without interruption - even during the midseason closure intended to reduce New York's fluke catch.

Faced with the state's tightest-ever recreational harvest restrictions, those boats are turning to an unusual federal program that raises money for fisheries research by selling off a portion of the annual catch, usually to commercial boats.
