Spring Balckfish Season Open & Sea Bass Limits

As we all know by now the NY State blackfish season is open this spring and started on Sunday April 1 and runs through April 30. Here are the limits now for blackfish in NY State for 2018
LI Sound
16 inches / 2 fish / Apr 1-Apr. 30
16 inches / 4 fish / Oct 11 - Dec 9
NY Bight District
16 inches / 2 fish / Apr 1-Apr. 30
16 inches / 4 fish / Oct 15 - Dec 22

Sea Bass is all in the news and the meeting in Stony Brook last weekend was super well attended and we will not accept any new limits with a biomass up 240% and we want NY State to go out of compliance. Last time we saw a biomass up this much it was porgies at 240% and we got more porgies to catch.. Your sea bass limits as they stand right now for 2018 are
15 inches / 3 fish / Jun 27-Aug 31
15 inches / 8 fish / Sept. 1-Oct.31
15 inches / 10 fish / Nov. 1-Dec 31
