Daisy, I was told that the shallowness of NJ side was the reason. I wonder if 60' slough would be a viable sight for one of them.

NJ has dropped quite a few just off shore, so they are not completely neglectful
Actually the 60' and 20' slough area's were designated as dredge spill areas as well as the deep water site at Henelopen. I not sure where this proposal stands now.

The oyster beds present a structure problem as well as water depth and bottom type regarding artifical reef sites.

Additionally the State of Delaware is pro fisherman, one only has to look at the number of free del ramp sites, They know the economic value of the rec fisherman.

Some years ago the State of NJ talked about an all waters lic simular to Del's,At the time it was shot down with good reason. This was before the Fed got involved. Now it appears that we will be hammered with both with no consideration regarding how much economic strain this will put on a typical NJ family. The trickle down effect will hurt B&T shops as well as marina operations, And then they wonder why people leave NJ and take there hard earned $ with them.
