Daily Fishing and Outdoor Report

5/20/2014 ... All kinds of stuff ... including NFL mockery

Fluking begins this Friday (May 23) and will go from zero to frenzy with a fine holiday weekend on tap. The minimum size if 18 inches, with a five-fish bag limit. I’ve already gotten a dozen or so reports of fluke being hooked as bycatch. Many have been legal-sized flatties, all dutifully released. Those nice sizes likely have to do with the larger bait chunks being thrown out for blues and bass.

I can’t officially say you can drift for fluke within Barnegat Inlet but it sure looks drift-able. I see no heavy equipment blocking the ebb and flow within the inlet. Oh, the equipment will be there soon enough, as work progresses on buttressing and mildly reconfiguring the North Jetty. That build will go on all summer.

To boaters, there is some nasty shoaling inside the Barnegat Inlet – and not just those usual shallows northeast off the concrete decked part of the South Jetty. Last week, I saw waves breaking inside the inlet, clear out near the submerged section of the North Jetty. The surf was large that day but still keep a close eye on your depth finder.

Black seabass season is just underway. This seabass segment will run until June 30. You can keep 15 fish with a minimum size of 12.5 inches. Come July 1, you can keep only three seabass, 12.5 or greater, until September 1.

Starfish went out to the artificials on Tuesday, finding a nice batch of seabass. There were some must-release tog out there and even a few ling. The dogs were also out. Which bring up a bone of frustration for surfcasters and drift anglers alike. Garbage fish are everywhere, mainly smooth dogs and skates, with some spinys mixed in. This is an above-average showing of these bait-scarfers. My best advice is to go to garbagefish.com to see how to best utilize these also-swams. I have often eaten spiny dogs. Decently tasty when milked (soaked in milk). Smooth dogs are somehow not as good. Go figure.

((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((()))))))))))))))))))))))))))

I’ll likely catch hell for this mockery but freedom of speech looses lips:

I hear the NFL is working on new, politically-correct penalties. Roughing remains a 15-yard penalty – unless the players involved kiss and make up, reducing it to five yards or less.

Certain penalties might be fully negated by allowing the flagged player to jog off to the locker room with the ref who threw the flag?  

“Uh, they sure have been in there a long time, Mel. I guess this play is still under review.”

“I agree, Hank. And I’m not sure if the Rams even have a back-up tight end -- except maybe that rookie running back from USC.”  

 “Well, Mel, let’s just hope they get this call straight. Oops, I didn’t mean to use the “s” word there. I sure hope that’s going to be my ass.”

“We better go to a commercial break, Hank.”

 Commercial: “Men, are you suffering from low T?” Not in this league, dude.

(If you have any, please add.)

ALERT: Little Egg Inlet is a mess -- a shallow, shoaly, dangerous mess!

Talking with top-notch captains Frank C. and John K., the entire south end charter, commercial and recreational fleet is in danger of being literally grounded for the entire upcoming angling and boating season. I’m talkin’ all summer. We’re also talking event like the famed White Marlin Invitational Tournament, which draws in larger vessels to be sure. This past weekend, a couple charters had to be canceled by captains because of impassable channel conditions. That’s how hideously bad the shallowing of Little Egg Harbor has gotten. It’s so bad the Capt. Frank thinks the only solution is opening up the “closed” Beach Haven Inlet.

Frank is not sold on reconfiguring the existing buoys. “They can put them anywhere they want; it’s not going to help. There are solid breakers in the inlet,” he said.

As to why the shoaling is taking over, I’ll bet the farm it’s the fallout from thousands and thousands of cubic yards of sand being swept from a horribly-eroded Holgate. Where else could those acres of south end sand have gone? Gimme aerial photos, past and present, and I can point out the equivalent of an entire island’s worth of sand being driven into Little Egg Harbor.

I’m hoping to help the south end folks fight for their channels but it’s gonna be a bitch since the feds seem to think the Intracoastal Waterway, from roughly the Causeway south, is of little commercial import. That s*** doesn’t fly with me. The ongoing growth of population and boating in Southern Ocean County, the ICW is beyond essential. Now to sell the brass on that reality.

Lawmakers are working on new legislation that would make most of New Jersey's state parks and beaches smoke-free. (May 19, 2014 8:02 PM)

Lawmakers are working on new legislation that would make most of New Jersey's state parks and beaches smoke-free.

State Sen. Shirley Turner says she has heard stories from constituents that made her stomach turn. "He was disgusted because his children were playing on the beach and made a sand castle and used cigarette butts to decorate the sand castle," she says.

Now that is one big fish.

The state Department of Environmental Conservation announced Tuesday that a 60-pound female striped bass caught in the Hudson River last week is a record for the largest inland striped bass ever landed in the state.

The fish, measuring 53.4 inches long and 33 inches in girth, was hauled in by Eric Lester of Campbell Hall, Orange County on May 14.

"This is a remarkable new record catch," DEC Commissioner Joseph Martens said in a statement. "I congratulate Mr. Lester on his success and determination."

Indeed, the DEC described Lester's fish story as a "comedy of errors."

According to the agency, Lester was fishing alone in Newburgh Bay when he hooked the leviathan.

As the fish fought, the reel came off his rod. Lester managed to fix the problem only to find the line tangled around his prop.

In spite of it all, he landed the fish.

Lester's striper surpassed the previous record of 55 pounds, 6 ounces, set in 2007.

Biologists estimated the fish to be at least 20 years old, the DEC said.

FAO: 70% of global fish stocks fished within sustainable limits; sfd production up 10 million tons


SEAFOODNEWS.COM  [SCOM]  May 19, 2014

The FAO has released its latest "State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture" report, covering 2012,  and there are a number of positive news items. First and foremost, 70% of wild capture fisheries are now being fished within biologically sustainable limts. 
 
This is a "reversal in trend observed during the past few years, a positive sign in the right direction," says the FAO. Global capture fisheries remained stable at 80 million tons. 
 
Secondly, the aquaculture production continues to surge. Global aquaculture production marked a record high of more than 90 million tonnes in 2012, including almost 24 million tonnes of aquatic plants. China accounted for over 60 percent of the total share.
 
Other positive trends were the increase in employment in fisheries and aquaculture, the greater share o trade coming from developing countries, and the fact that seafood now accounts for 17% of global protein consumption. 
 
The report also emphasizes the importance and positive role of the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries which, since its adoption almost two decades ago, remains key to achieving sustainable fisheries and aquaculture.
 
More people than ever before rely on fisheries and aquaculture for food and as a source of income says the new FAO report published today.  (link to full report
 
According to the latest edition of FAO's The State of World Fisheries and Aquaculture, global fisheries and aquaculture production totalled 158 million tonnes in 2012 - around 10 million tonnes more than 2010.
 
The rapid expansion of aquaculture, including the activities of small-scale farmers, is driving this growth in production.
 
Fish farming holds tremendous promise in responding to surging demand for food which is taking place due to global population growth, the report says.
 
At the same time, the planet's oceans - if sustainably managed - have an important role to play in providing jobs and feeding the world, according to FAO's report.
 
"The health of our planet as well as our own health and future food security all hinge on how we treat the blue world," FAO Director-General José Graziano da Silva said.
 
"We need to ensure that environmental well-being is compatible with human well-being in order to make long-term sustainable prosperity a reality for all. For this reason, FAO is committed to promoting 'Blue Growth,' which is based on the sustainable and responsible management of our aquatic resources."
 
The renewed focus on the so-called "blue world" comes as the share of fisheries production used by humans for food has increased from about 70 percent in the 1980s to a record high of more than 85 percent (136 million tonnes) in 2012.
 
At the same time per capita fish consumption has soared from 10 kg in the 1960s to more than 19 kg in 2012.
 
The new report also says fish now accounts for almost 17 percent of the global population's intake of protein -- in some coastal and island countries it can top 70 percent.
 
FAO estimates that fisheries and aquaculture support the livelihoods of 10-12 percent of the world's population.
 
Since 1990 employment in the sector has grown at a faster rate than the world's population and in 2012 provided jobs for some 60 million people engaged in capture fisheries and aquaculture. Of these, 84 percent were employed in Asia, followed by Africa with about 10 percent.
 
Global marine capture fishery production was stable at about 80 million tonnes in 2012, the new report indicates.
 
Currently, under 30 percent of the wild fish stocks regularly monitored by FAO are overfished - a reversal in trend observed during the past few years, a positive sign in the right direction.
 
Just over 70 percent are being fished within biologically sustainable levels. Of these, fully fished stocks - meaning those at or very close to their maximum sustainable production - account for over 60 percent and underfished stocks about 10 percent.
 
Global aquaculture production marked a record high of more than 90 million tonnes in 2012, including almost 24 million tonnes of aquatic plants. China accounted for over 60 percent of the total share.
 
Aquaculture's expansion helps improve the diets of many people, especially in poor rural areas where the presence of essential nutrients in food is often scarce.
 
However, the report warns that to continue to grow sustainably, aquaculture needs to become less dependent on wild fish for feeds and introduce greater diversity in farmed culture species and practices.
 
For example, small-sized species can be an excellent source of essential minerals when consumed whole. However, consumer preferences and other factors have seen a switch towards larger farmed species whose bones and heads are often discarded.
 
The role of fish is set to feature prominently at the Second International Conference on Nutrition jointly organized by FAO and the World Health Organization (WHO) for 19-21 November 2014 in Rome.
 
Fish remains among the most traded food commodities worldwide, worth almost $130 billion in 2012 - a figure which likely will continue to increase.
 
An important trend sees developing countries boosting their share in the fishery trade - 54 percent of total fishery exports by value in 2012 and more than 60 percent by quantity (live weight).
 
This means fisheries and fish farming are playing an increasingly critical role for many local economies. Some 90 percent of fishers are small scale and it is estimated that, overall, 15 percent are women. In secondary activities such as processing, this figure can be as high as 90 percent.
 
FAO, through the 2014 International Year of Family Farming, is raising the profile of smallholder activities - including fisheries and aquaculture - with an emphasis on improving access to finance and markets, securing tenure rights and protecting the environment.
 
An estimated 1.3 billion tonnes of food are lost per year - to about one-third of all food produced. This figure includes post-harvest fish losses, which tend to be greater in small-scale fisheries.
 
In small-scale fisheries, quality losses are often far more significant than physical losses. Improved handling, processing and value-addition methods could address the technical aspects of this issue, but it is also vital to extend good practices, build partnerships, raise awareness, and develop capacity and relevant policies and strategies.
 
The report also notes that illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing remains a major threat to marine ecosystems and also impacts negatively on livelihoods, local economies and food supplies.
 
Food chain traceability is increasingly a requirement in major fish markets, especially in the wake of recent scandals involving the mislabelling of food products.
 
FAO provides technical guidelines on certification and ecolabelling which can help producers demonstrate that fish has been caught legally from a sustainably managed fishery or produced in properly run aquaculture facility.
 
In particular, the report stresses the importance of the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries which, since its adoption almost two decades ago, remains key to achieving sustainable fisheries and aquaculture.
 
The Code promotes the responsible use of aquatic resources and habitat conservation to help boost the sector's contribution to food security, poverty alleviation and human well-being.
 
FAO is also promoting "Blue Growth" as a framework for ensuring sustainable and socioeconomically-sensitive management of oceans and wetlands.
 
At the Global Oceans Action Summit on Food Security and Blue Growth held last month in The Hague, Netherlands, governments and other participants committed to actions focused on tackling climate change, overfishing, habitat loss and pollution in a bid to restore productive, resilient oceans.
