The following is a news release from the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission:

Specifically, the Horseshoe Crab Management Board will now be on May 4th; the Weakfish Management Board will be on May 4th; the Atlantic Menhaden Management Board will be on May 5th; the Spiny Dogfish & Coastal Sharks Management Board will be on May 6th; and the American Eel Management Board will be on May 6th.

So what does this mean? Does this mean we need to wait until May 4th to even hear when Seabass will open?

Inshore seabass is open now. If the water warms and they come in for the end of april you can keep them.

I was referring more to offshore. I believe the close was 180 days from October 5th, no? So does that open early april, or do we have to wait until this meeting for it to be reopened?

Also, are you certain that inshore seabass is open? I mean that regs that I saw show a tentative opening of May 22nd. If you go to the state of NJ DEP webiste, they show the season as May 22nd to Sept. 12th. Doesn't that seem to imply that its closed inshore of 3 miles before then? This is confusing.

From what I see the season so far is the same as last year 'til they vote. A slplit season is still up in the air.
