thanks eclearyecleary wrote:Yeah, New Jersey. There is some good fishing there and the fishery is very well managed. They are significantly bigger than our flounders too so good sport on a spinning rod.

wow, wish I had known they were there when I was in wildwood 20 odd years ago!ecleary wrote:chuckaroo wrote:what do you mean the fishery is well managed - are you saying that the flounder are protected? is permission needed to fish for them?
Well they have minimum size and bag limits for a range of fish including fluke. You also need to register to fish, which was free from memory. I was in wildwood; I don't think it's a hot spot or anything like that but got a plenty of flounder there at 3 to 5 lb size. All on bucktails.
