​ATTENTION ALL FISHERMEN

WELL IT LOOKS LIKE OUR FLUKE SEASON WAS CUT SHORT BY THE PEOPLE AT NMFS.  NOW WE ARE FACED WITH THE SITUATION WHERE WE WILLN NOT BE ABLE TO FISHED FOR EITHER FLUKE OR SEA BASS, WHICH IS THE MAINSTAY OF THE STATE OF NJ. AT THIS TIME OF YEAR.  


WE ALL WENT ALONG WITH THE 18 1/2 INCH FISH, INSTEAD OF THE OTHER OPTIONS AND THE LONGER SEASON.. IN RETURN, WE WERE TOLD THAT THERE WOULD BE A STRONG EFFORT TO OPEN OUR SEA BASS SEASON IN SEPTEMBER.  THE FISHERY HAS 100% RECOVERY AND NEITHER THE NMFS OR THE STATE WILL ALLOW USN TO FISH FOR THEM.  IT ALWAYS SEEMS THAT WHATEVER HAPPENS DURING THE SEASON (WEATHER IT HAS BEEN A GOOD OR BAD SEASON) WE ARE TOLD THAT WE HAVE OVERFISHED THE SPECIES AND THEY PLAN TO TAKE EVEN MORE FISH AWAY FROM US AND SHORTEN OUR FISHING SEASON.  IT IS COMICAL HOW THIS OPERATES.  THE NMFS CAN CARE LESS ABOUT THE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE THAT ARE AFFECTED BY THIS AS LONG AS THEY ARE ABLE TO KEEP CUTTING BACK OUR FISHING QUOTA AND MAINTAIN THEIR NUMBERS.  IT AMAZES ME THAT THESE PEOPLE GET AWAY WITH THIS FLAWED DATA BULLSHIT AND THAT NO ONE IN THIS COUNTRY WILL STAND UP AND HELP FISHERMEN THAT DO THIS FOR A LIVING, RECREATIONAL FISHERMAN AND GUYS THAT JUST WANT TO PUT SOMETHING GOOD TO EAT ON THEIR TABLE.  THIS IS AMERICA'S FAVORITE PAST TIME AND WE HAVE ZERO RIGHTS, NO REPRESENTATION.  IT IS NOTHING BUT AN ONCOMING TRAIN COMING THRU THE TUNNEL, LIGHTS ON , FULL SPEED AHEAD.  


THE FUNNY THIN ABLOUT A FISH IS THAT IT HAS A HEAD AND A TAIL.  FISH HAVE DIFFERENT MIGRATORY PATTERNS, SO THEY DON"T ALWAYS COME BACK TO THE SAME AREA EVERY YEAR.  IT JUST DOESN'T WORK THIS WAY, HOWEVER THE NMFS SEEM TO COLLECT THEIR DATA FROM THE SAME SPOTS EVERY YEAR.    IT IS NOTHING MORE THAN A GIANT WASTE OF THEN TAXPAYERS MONEY.  IF THIS IS THE WAY IT IS GOING TO BE, THEN GET PROFESSIONAL FISHERMEN INVOLVED TO AQUIRE THE DATA TO DO 100% OF THE SURVEY ALONG WITH NMFS.  THEIS WAY THE DATA WILL NOT BE FLAWED AND EVERYONE WILL BE SATISFIED WITH THE RESULTS.  WE HAVE ALL HEARD OF THE BOSTON TEA PARTY, WELL MAYBE IT IS TIME TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE AND HAVE A NJ TEA PARTY,  IT MAY BE TIME FOR NJ TO GO OUT OF COMPLIANCE AND STEP UP TO HELP THE PEOPLE OF NJ,  AND TAKE BACK THE RIGHT TO GO FISHING AGAIN.  IT IS TIME FOR THE GOVERNMENT WHETHER IT IS FEDERAL OR STATE NTO HELP US.  WE ARE PLEADING WITH YOU!  ALL WE WENT IS TO EARN A LIVING AND HAVE A RIGHT TO FISH!  IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE IN A POSITION TO HELP US? PLEASE COME FORWARD.  SHAR3E THIS WITH AS MANY FISHERMEN AS POSSIBLE.  PLEASE REACH OUT TO ANYONE WHO CAN HELP US.




THE FOLLOWING IS A RESPONSE FROM NICK CICERO WHO HAD A RECENT MEETING IN DC. ABOUT THIS SITUATION   PLEASE READ AND SEE THE ATTACHED LETTER WRITTEN TO SENATOR BOOKER.


I see what you wrote and YOU ARE RIGHT   !!!    But I don’t think New Jersey will not have balls enough to vote us out of compliance again ….. with sea bass they should The sad truth is that we have failed to get the new administration and Commerce officials  to understand the severity and injustice of our situation with regards to sea bass! A recent person to person meeting in DC with Dept. of Commerce key personal and countless letters and phone calls from RFA including detailed justification for allowing some relief has fallen on deaf ears!
I’m afraid that this will be the trend as fisheries concerns don’t seem to be a current priority with this administration or legislators and now fall well below the attention span of our elected officials!  The republican leadership is at odds with the administration  and will move nothing forward while at this time the opposition party has an even better excuse to do what they’ve grown accustomed to …………sit by and do nothing ! 
Jim Hutchinson , John Depersenaire, and myself personally met with Mr. Bookers staffer assigned to fisheries issues on a recent Washington trip  in which we briefed her on the dire situation NJ  was facing this fall. We went to Congressman Pallone’s office and spoke about the same issue 
To remind the Senators of this upcoming disaster, I sent the letter [ see below  ]  to both our New Jersey Senators over a week ago and have not heard a word back !
Face it they don’t care ! or that’s my interpretation…  that they don’t    and in my view  we are collectively back were we started…… which is saddled with a Fisheries act that lacks by design any ability to reward fishermen when a species has rebounded and is in abundance and an agency that fine with that level of injustice  
And the very sad truth is at the end of the day BLAME has to be assigned to the guy we elected as President  If he can pardon a Sherriff in Arizona He can make a phone call to the department of Commerce and ask that they come up with 30 to 50 thousand Sea Bass to bail us out !  

 
Dear Senator Booker 
Black Sea Bass is the poster child of regulatory backwardness and is an example of a complete lapse in government regulatory timeliness!  Until just recently , the Black Sea Bass population has been commonly recognized by everyone with any on the water experience  [ except the National Marine Fisheries Service ]  as biomass growing in unprecedented numbers and moving northward in its’ range.  Recreational anglers in both the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast - especially in New England - started to more frequently target black sea bass because the previously popular cod fishery was at an all-time low.  And yes, admittedly, black sea bass harvests have grown most significantly during the years between the last and most recent stock assessments . 

Simply put ….it’s because they are there and fishermen tend to catch the most abundant species!
Yet, it took almost eight years for NMFS to recognize and confirm what fishermen had been reporting and they now document that this fishery is currently over 130 % above their scientifically unsubstantiated and  utopian population goal that had been set as a recovery benchmark many years before. 

Note… that during all that time, when the NMFS numbers and corresponding bag limits and seasons were completely punitive , anglers were burdened with unreasonably restrictive regulations and shortened seasons based on inaccurate science.  And this past year, after concluding that the population was in fact much higher than previously recognized, the same anglers were rewarded with shorter seasons and smaller bag limits because questionable government catch surveys indicated that the recreational community caught too many in the previous year!   

 To add insult to injury, no attempt was ever made to pro rate and to reward the fishermen for all those years that the recreational community lived with limits and seasons that could have been, and should have been, much more liberal!   Simple logic would dictate that the 130 % stock level wasn’t reached in one year, but in fact was based on years of significant population increases. 

 I’m asking for your help to convince the NMFS that they can allow more liberal seasons and bags limits on Black Sea Bass with NO adverse harm to the biomass . Most importantly, this will greatly help the costal businesses and their recreational angling patrons here in New Jersey who will very shortly be facing weeks with no reasonable fishing opportunities, or reason to fish. 

 NMFS needs to allow a small emergency allocation of Sea Bass between the time when the summer flounder season ends (Sept. 5, 2017) and the fall Black Sea Bass season begins (Oct. 22, 2017).

Recreational angling groups have been lobbying NMFS for a small interim quota that would allow anglers a Sea Bass bag limit during the time period that is currently slated to be a closed season. 
Government agencies need to be responsible for both the health and sustainability of our natural resources as well as the livelihoods of those of us who earn a living based on accessibility to those public resources. Moreover, federal laws pertaining to and dictating how recreational fisheries are managed need to be amended to take into consideration the limitations and timeliness of the recreational data collection programs and their inability to be used for the fair and equitable enforcement of annual catch limits on our sector. 
Regulations need to not only support marine biomass health  but, as in this case ,  when a population has recovered to an historical all-time record , regulators must consider and reward the sacrifices made by recreational anglers and fishing related businesses
