Somethings fishy in this story.....

Captains intently watching water temperature

Top individual catches included Mike Vastola, Lavallette, with 21 sea bass and four porgies; Alan Kinsey, Maplewood, with 25 sea bass and 10 porgies; Daniel Rue, Palisades Park, with 23 sea bass and a pollock; and Mike Langevin and Bill Tragesvr, Merrick, N.Y., with 30 sea bass, 11 porgies and three ling.

Isn't the rec limit 25 sea bass in NY and NJ??:confused:

Thats a rhetorical question....I checked- it is.

Seems kind of strange to print this guys name and **make it sound like** that he took five fish over the limit?

never says that he kept 30, all it states is that he was high hook with 30. I would imagine he only kept his limit or it would not be posted like that

True...but it reads like he took 30.

And never give the newspapers that much credit for discretion.

I read stories like that, which often state something that we all know is "improper" but they print it anyways?

That's how I read it, two with 30 and who knows if they kept them all.

This reminds me of a story in the cape cod times a few years ago about herring, in which the local bait shops were interviewed about "illegal"
herring sales and they all were saying how they only bought herring from "licensed" fishermen, when there is no such thing as a permit to sell river herring in MA......

Newspapers are always printing stuff without actually considering what they are printing:rolleyes:

Sounds more like a reading comprehension problem than a newspaper problem.
