    Default keeping flounder question

    With the possibility of the crappy regs, would it be legal as a cape may marina boat to fish Deleware waters,limit on there regs early in the day, run over to the ferry terminal, have 1 of my guys board the ferry with the cooler, then meet me back at the dock later in the afternoon Once i get back in with the legal limit of N.J flounder and split the fish between us all ? I understand the money and practicaity of the scenerio ,just curious.

    Or keep it simple and not try to push the envelope and just abide by the rules like everyone else..........Another option that would make sense for you would be to just move your boat to Delaware, slip it there and it would be less of a hassle for you.

    The general consensus on the rules is that it comes down to "possession" and "location."

    If you are in NJ, and you are found in "possession" of fish that are illegal in NJ, I don't see why they would care where you caught them.

    It's not really any different from legally catching stripers just off the beach in early am, and then going out to a wreck for some Tog over the 3 mile line. The fish were legal where you caught them, but you have now brought them into an area where it is illegal to "possess" them.

    JZ nailed it. If you come back to a Delaware marina you're fine. It goes based on possession. If you're found in NJ waters or come back to an NJ marina and are found in possession of those fish you'll be fined. They actually don't care where you caught them.
