DEC Regulations

Rich, please clear this up for me. The DEC regs says there is a limit of 10* Atlantic Cod but the * indicates the following:
Anglers on board federally permitted party or charter vessels may possess any number of Atlantic cod, consistent with federal rules.

I have noticed fishing reports lately where the Captains are saying that the fishermen only kept their limits.

Which is right?

What about the other states in the area, mainly NJ, CT and RI ? I see boats for cod going out of there. Is the limit 10 there also?

You are just raising a great point. If boats in our nearby states are covered by the Federal Guidelines I would be willing to drive there. I know that we kept everything we caught in Mass.

Any one who wants to go can get a free ride with me..............
