Friday saw small craft advisories up for the bay and ocean with gale warning up for Saturday. Sunday may be fishable, but we go right back to high winds and rain on Monday.
On Thursday, November 8, at 6:00 PM the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission will hold a public hearing in Dover at the DNREC Auditorium, 89 Kings Highway. The commission has developed new addenda for summer flounder, black sea bass and scup (porgy). This hearing is meant to inform the fishing public exactly what the addenda contain and how these guidelines will affect the regulations for the next few years. They also want to her from us as to what new regulations are needed and how more or less restrictions will affect our recreation or business.
Summer flounder and black sea bass are two very popular fish for Delaware anglers. If you don’t come out and express your thoughts, do not complain that no one takes recreational fishing seriously.
Right now Delaware is in a region with Maryland and Virginia and this has worked to our advantage. The new addenda could change that.
