Default Number of Trips and /or sales in 2013 due to Hurricane Sandy

For all but participation by Sponser PB / Charter Boats and Bail &Tackle stores will greatly help the impact. Goal is to provide reality to fight the "flawed" Landing numbers for 2013 on all species

Gerry,
Yes and Yes. The more participation the better.
I believe the more impactful information has to come from the Party, Charter Boats and Marina's / Bait and Tackle stores so hopefully those sponsors will chime in.

Not sure where it will go as it should be OBVIOUS but may be useful at Mondays meeting and another wake-up call to our elected ones here in Jersey who swore they were going to pay attention to NJ economy after the storm. Allowing shut downs or decreasing our fisheries in NJ is NOT paying attention.

Due to the aftermath of Sandy, my dock was destroyed, I totally lost the first 2 months of the season before my boat was in the water. Next came the wind and cold water, did not waste the money for just a boat ride.

Early in the season participation was WAY down. Hell, Atlantic Highlands didn't even complete rebuilding the harbor until late July I think and even then there were empty slips. The waiting list for a slip used to be years long, not anymore.

Opening day fluke was the fewest amount of boats I've ever seen in Sandy Hook/Raritan Bay for what's normally a parking lot situation.
How these bozos think we over fished fluke is beyond me.

In the same boat as most have commented here. Due to the condition of our Marina, we were not able to get our boat into it's slip until June 1. We usually start fishing in April so we lost April and May.

Opening day fluke and the following 6 weeks was a complete waste of time, money,fuel and bait. Waters off Monmouth & Ocean Counties were ice cold, as evident of the numerous Ling, Squirrel Hake & Fourspot Flounder we caught while bucktailing Fluke. The handful of Fluke we caught during that period of time were all in the 15-16" bracket, and were as cold as winter bottom fish, much less to the fact that they didn't even put up a fight. It was a season I pray never to see again in my lifetime!!!! And everytime I see these numbers reports, I inch closer & closer to making my own rules.......Beginning to think I'm being ruled by a communist government!

We really aren't that far off that assessment.. However, thats the way society is headed.. Its what we demand as a nation, and in our respective states, you in NJ, and me in NY.. We get and deserve the leaders we elect... Its hard to swallow for some of us, but try and keep in mind, we are getting precisely what we demand... bob
