One if the issues that will be addressed at next month's joint meeting of the MAFMC and ASMFC fluke board is the "regionalization" of fluke management. One of the proposals made by several advisors (including myself) would split Long Island Sound and Block Island sound off from the south shore of NY into its own fluke region. That should mean less restrictive regulations for fluke fishing in the sounds. If you support this effort please write to the ASMFC fluke management board and the MAFMC members. If you oppose it, keep you mouth shut. Shades

Perhaps you could explain why it would produce less restrictive measures?

I would suspect less pressure on the north shore

If it doesn't affect the south shore fluke regs, sounds good.

I'm interested Mike but I think we'd all like more info. I wouldn't want to feel like we're on opposite sides of the fence from our south shore friends

Since when would you only want a one sided discussion?

So boats fishing out of Montauk would have to follow two different sets of regulations? Fishing in the ocean, south of the point you'd be in one region, and north of the point you'd be in another?

What happened to the Regional plan that created a much larger region so states sharing those same bodies of water wouldn't have to worry about different regs between them?

Maybe the north shore can break off and become part on New Jersey???

Sounds similar to the problem in the NY Bight. Two boats fishing 50' from each other could be following two different sets of regs with one boat putting fish in the box that the other boat must throw back. ON the north Shore, with two boats moving in from opposite sides of the same narrow body of water having the same experience. Might not be such a bad idea, but agreed need more info.


At least the panic over the "Fiscal Cliff" proved the "Bush Tax Cuts for the Rich" montra was a load of crap repeated by Liars and ignorant lemmings.

CT. & RI already had less restrictive fluke regulations. Now you propose to pit New Yorkers against New Yorkers. Brilliant!

I agree with Chris about states sharing same bodies of water having the same regs.

While your at it MM why don't you keep your mouth shut. I for one will be sending letters opposing this proposal.

This should be interesting since ALL Montauk boats have to cross into the Block Island Sound zone to go back into the barn, so the most restrictive rules "win" by default.

How come this is not in the Fisheries Management Section?

Sounds like a pretty terrible idea to me...Totally defeats the purpose of regional management.
Fair regulations, for EVERYONE in the region is the way to go, and it's about time. I too will be writing opposing this proposal.
