Thanks for all the hard work you put into this Paul.. We really appreciate it. I'm going to try my best to make it (Tax day for me!) representing Grumpys Tackle. We're all for the longer season and 18" size limit.

----To all NJfishing members and friends----

Please let all your fishing buds know about this and tell them to try to make it Thursday. A longer season would not only help the fisherman but also the Bait Tackle Stores and Party/Charter boats. We need the longer season point blank!

Ummm The stock has been rebuilt for 4 years already maybe 5. This crap they are pulling now is all about politics not about the fluke.

When the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act was imposed and a finite time frame to rebuild fluke stocks that have fell to a record low was implemented, they gave themselves a 10 year time frame starting in 2000. IMHO by 2007 the stock was rebuilt but to them they still needed more, so the kept this charade going and then said well we will not make the 10 year deadline so lets impose stricter laws.

These people are idiots and if you think for one second the fluke stock isn't rebuilt, you need to go fluking more often.

This isn't about the stocks any longer it is like I have stated before about politics...

I don't know about anyone else. now. i voted for the 18 inch size limit.

but I saw someone say a split season. I think that can work for all parties. say from early April you can keep 2-3 fluke per day (i think 1 is a little light) at 18 or 17 1/2 inches

then starting early May and going through mid October lets say 15-16-17 for arguments sake your allowed 6-7 fish PD, PP at 18''

everyone wins! a little confusing for the average guy??........ maybe but many people have already stated (screw the 3-4 time a year guy) so this way you have you fluke for almost an extra month. and all you give up is 1 or 2 fish on the bag limit during the main season. I think that is something that everyone could live with. 12 or 14 fillets to take home if you limit........ and you get to fish for the jersey favorite during most of April and you still have a legit shot to get a real doormat.

tackle shops sell fluke rigs and bait and bucktails for an extra month almost and party boats could sail special fluke trips during the week instead of targeting Stripers or bottom species only. and we all know that when fluke opens a different clientele starts to fish on a more regular basis.

While i agree with most of what angler paul is saying i think we should take into account that problably 80% of the people fishing for fluke are not really good at it.These people are moms and dads with their kids,boyfreinds,girlfreinds,grandpop,company charters,rental boaters etc.Having a 5 fish limit @ 17.5inches would a least give all these people a shot at bringing home a meal or two or seeing a smile on a kids face.For us in the other 20% we know you have to go to the rough stuff to have chance of getting a limit of 18 inch fish.If you go on a party boat who do you think is catching the most and the biggest fish its the guys in the bow with their custom rods and reels and tackle boxes full of jigs while the regular fares are catching shorts or nothing at all.The party boat captains are not going to take a boatload of rookies to the rattlesnake even know they know thats where the keepers are.We in the 20% fish more often and are alot better at it so having enough fluke fillets is usually not a problem.I hope we just dont think about ourselves but take everbody into account.

Couldn't agree more. And for what its worth, I also like the longer season 18" option if that's what it comes down to. I think every option is decent.... Except for #6.
