Episode 60-Summer Flounder Fishing with Russ Allen and Al Ivany

June 30, 2017


Fishing is a popular pastime in New Jersey, and you can’t talk fish without mentioning the summer flounder, also known as fluke. New Jersey is pursuing an agreement regarding 2017 fishing regulations. Currently, New Jersey’s regulations for summer flounder fishing are: 18-inch minimum size, 104-day season, and 3-fish possession limit. To keep this recreational fishery strong, DEP is working with NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) to implement best practices that keep summer flounder population strong. Russ Allen and Al Ivany from the Division of Fish and Wildlife sat down with Bob Bostock to talk about summer flounder and its importance to New Jersey
