I attended the Mid Atlantic Council meeting tonite and they voted on the 2006 allotment
After some strong arguments by JCAA,RFA, and United Boatman and some from Jersey reps they voted and passed an admendment that reduces the catch for 2006 to 23.59 lbs DOWN from 30 million lbs in 2005
NOW ,(tomorrow Wed) the ASMFC will decide what the new regulations will be.
The whole process needs to be redone in my opinion as currently they are not paying any attention to ecomonic impact
Stay tuned

But an seriously thinking of imposing my own regulations on flounder going forward. The way that flounder has been tightend every year is ridiculous. Every year there are more flounder, but every year I take home less. I want the same regs as the commies, 14" FISH. Seriously, how about something reasonable like 6 fish, 15" min.
With the increasing costs of boating/fishing, I think alot more people are going to start to consider the "Fillet & Release" practice if the regs continue to increase size limits. :rolleyes:
