Its where the boat is caught. If that NY boat is fishing in CT waters but make it back to NY waters before they are boarded then there is no infraction. Boats must be caught breaking the rules within that specific area. Another example is this: Fluke season closes for NY state at the end of October, BUT Federal law closed fluke Oct 1
in federal waters. (Most fed waters are at about 60ft depths off the south shore) Well as we all know most fluke were being caught 50 -70ft depths which were in fed waters. So if a boat made it back to less then 3 miles offshore than they would have nothing to worry about. Now how ridiculous is that?
