I have been hearing some different closing dates for the 2008 fluke season.. Is it the 1st of Sept. or August 31st???I just got off the phone with DEC and the season closes at midnight on August 31. So yet another way to ruin a good thing is to not allow the fishing for fluke on the last true day of summer..For those who want to fish on September 1st (Labor Day) for fluke keep in mind the DEC will be out in full force watching and boarding who they can..


I hope this clears things up for the NY angler...Only a few days left so go gettem' and fill that freezer for our long winter!!!

The DEC website lists the Open Season for 2008 "summer flounder (fluke)" as May 15 to September 1. I just telephoned the East Setauket Bureau of Marine Resources (631 444-0430), spoke to a very, very nice pleasant woman, who stated that the season ends midnight, Sept 1.
