Gonna go bottom fishing this weekend and target seabass.Just wondering if you can keep any blackfish now or do you have to toss em back since the season doesn't start until Oct.1?

October 1 is not a significant date in NJ. If you are referring to NY, you can not keep anything before October 1 and legally you cant target them either. If you are fishing in NJ, you are allowed 1 until Nov 16th.
