2003 fluking will be super

All this bad weather is keeping the commercials at their docks. This is good because they won't take as many fluke this winter.
There's a 500 pound catch limit for fluke each trip. How do the commercials get around this in the winter ? It would hardly be worth there while to go all the way offshore for such a small catch. You can bet that they got around this limit some how.
let everyone here hope the bad weather continues and the fluke fishing is great in 2003.

Where are you guys getting your figures from? I've never heard of the 500 lb trip limit in NY, infact I always heard it was much less. And, fluke draggers are not confined to federal waters, so the three mile limit has nothing to do with them.
