"I'm tellin' ya, there's a grub in here the size of your fist!" 

Monday, May 04, 2015: South winds are adding a load of chop to the ocean bluefish waters. The bay is a little easier to handle – though the blues remain wild and woolly.

I can’t keep track of the incoming “big bluefish” reports. I can only repeat it is odd to the point of epic. I like to go on the recollections of old-timers and most of the ones I’ve talked with say they can’t recall this many big blues in the spring mix. Might it be the ocean stock coming in close for some reason, as someone asked? Possibly. Far more graspable, there is going to be one helluva spawn. No, that doesn’t mean cocktail/tailor blues this fall. Any year-class fish will only be a few inches long.

Due mainly to the fishing pressure, bass are also appearing the hook-up mix. However, they’re really not showing to any great degree. Nonetheless, the Simply Bassin’ event is arriving. I have to think that once the blues go north, the bass will move in to reclaim their near-beach surf-turf. Unlike the blues, bait will prevail as the better choice for bass coaxing. Jigs will also shine. I need to stock up on plastics after sacrificing many to the blues.

Slow and bumpy start to SB replen ... winds should die off a bit.

Hacks ... or not????

Stop New Line From Tangling - When you've spooled fresh new line on to your reel, it can take a while for it to form a memory and to stop spilling off your reel at every chance. To get new line to conform to your reel, run a newly spooled reel under hot tap water for a minute or so. The heat will cause the line to form a memory of the reel, preventing tangles and twist later on.

This makes sense:

"I am at the ASMFC meeting in Alexandria and word came down that the 
Governor signed the Striped Bass bill today (May 4th) changing the
regulations. So instead of being able to retain two Striped Bass at
28 inches you now are allowed one fish 28 inches but less than 43
inches and one fish 43 inches or greater.

Sincerely
Tom Fote"

We're going to chase the big bluefish that have been tearing up Barnegat Bay. After a break in the action (last) Monday, we had 5 fish in 4 hours, they resurfaced further north in the bay. Same size, 7 to 12 pounders, and good numbers for the last two days. We will be armed with poppers and combing the bay until we get into them. Doesn't get much better on 10 pound spinning tackle in 5 feet of water throwing surface lures.

 
Sailing Open Boat Friday afternoon, May 1, 1PM to 6 PM, and also Sunday and Monday mornings, May 3 and 4, 5AMto 10AM. $150 per person. 3 people max. Last weekend we ran this same trip at $130 per person as the fish were only 3 miles from my marina. The last few days we've been running 10 to 11 miles each way so I am anticipating the extra fuel burn.  
 
Call to reserve a spot.

DEP ENCOURAGES ACTION TO IMPROVE AIR QUALITY

(15/P37) TRENTON - The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is encouraging New Jersey residents to make basic changes to their everyday routines to help improve air quality as part of Air Quality Awareness Week, which starts today and runs through May 1.

"The Christie Administration has made cleaner air a top priority and we have seen greatly improved air quality in our state as a result," DEP Commissioner Bob Martin said. "During Air Quality Awareness Week, everyone has the opportunity to take simple actions to improve the air we breathe. It's my hope that all New Jersey residents can follow these easy actions at all times to reduce air pollutants."

Air Quality Awareness Week promotes education about air quality and encourages changes in everyday routines, especially when air quality is unhealthy. These include reducing automobile trips, not idling a vehicle, keeping vehicle's maintenance up-to-date, using environmentally-friendly cleaning products, and checking the Air Quality Index (AQI) before heading outside.

New Jersey's air quality has improved greatly in recent years as a result of laws regulating power plants and industrial emissions; better pollution controls on cars and trucks, especially those with diesel emission; and updating dry cleaning equipment. Governor Christie has targeted out-of-state polluters, in particular, whose downwind emissions cross over to New Jersey. 

Most notably, the state won a major victory with the Environmental Protection Agency's approval of New Jersey's Clean Air Act petition in 2012 that resulted in a mandated 60 percent reduction in sulfur dioxide emissions that had long crossed the Delaware River and into North Jersey from coal-fired units at a Portland, Pa. power plant. The plant's coal-fired units shut down last summer. 

New Jersey has also achieved the national standards set by the EPA for fine particulate matter. Ozone, however, still remains an issue. Air Quality Awareness Week is timed to the beginning of the ozone season. 

As warmer weather fast approaches New Jersey, residents are encouraged to take steps to protect their health from ozone. 

Ground-level ozone, also called smog, is a strong respiratory irritant that can bring on asthma attacks and adversely affect the health of sensitive individuals, including those with respiratory and heart illness, older adults, young children and people who are active outdoors. 

There are numerous opportunities for people, municipalities and elected officials to improve air quality in their neighborhoods. Some tips on reducing air pollutants include:

* Do not idle your car. It will save you fuel and money, as well as benefit your health.
* Develop good driving habits; Combine automobile trips to reduce "cold starts." Choose a cleaner commute via carpooling, use of public transportation, biking or walking when possible.
* If your check-engine light is on, get your car emission codes read to determine what type of maintenance your car needs. 
* When refueling vehicles, ask your gas attendant to stop when the nozzle clicks off to prevent overfilling. Tighten gas caps securely. Refuel vehicles in the late afternoon or after dark to reduce evaporation of gasoline, a volatile organic compound capable of forming smog.
* Maintain an energy efficient vehicle. Keep vehicle tires properly inflated to increase your gas mileage and reduce engine emissions.
* Turn off lights when you leave a room. Reduce usage of heating and air conditioning units while not home.
* Before doing household work that cause air pollution, like painting or mowing your lawn, check your local Air Quality Index (AQI) at www.njaqinow.net. If it is an orange or red-level day, postpone projects that use solvents or engines.
* Clean and paint using products with low volatile organic compound (VOC) content or none at all. Water-based products are best.

Earlier this year, New Jersey launched a Clean Air NJ website to educate the public about ground-level ozone and the role the public can play in reducing ozone forming emissions. The website can be found at www.cleanair.nj.gov.

NOAA Fisheries Announces a Final Rule to Adjust the 2015 North and South Atlantic Swordfish Quotas

 

 

 

This final rule establishes the 2015 adjusted North and South Atlantic swordfish quotas taking into account the carryover of allowable underharvest and international quota transfers, consistent with the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) Recommendations 13-02 and 13-03.

 

The final North and South Atlantic swordfish adjusted quotas are 3,359.4 and 75.1 mt dw, respectively.  Specifics on landings and quotas can be found below.

The available 2014 underharvest is based on data received from commercial dealers and anglers; it does not include dead discards, late reports, or changes to the data as a result of quality control adjustments.

* Under Recommendation 13-03, the United States transfers 75.2 mt dw (100 mt ww) annually to Namibia (37.6 mt dw, 50 mt ww), Côte d'Ivoire (18.8 mt dw, 25 mt ww), and Belize (18.8 mt dw, 25 mt ww).

 

This notice is a courtesy to the Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (HMS) fishery participants to help keep you informed about the fishery.  Official notice of Federal actions is made through filing such notice with the Office of Federal Register.  For further information on this final rule, contact Andrew Rubin at 301-427-8503 or Steve Durkee at 202-670-6637.  Copies of the final rule are available upon request from the Highly Migratory Species Management Division, 1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910 (phone: 301-427-8503, fax: 301-713-1917).  The information will also be posted on the HMS website at:
