2019 NJ Fluke Fishing Regulations – Summer Flounder

2019 NJ Fluke Fishing Regulations Are Still In The Works


At the March 7th NJ Marine Fisheries Council Meeting, Summer Flounder was one of many topics on the agenda. While dates, minimum size and bag limits were discussed… nothing was finalized.

Fluke Love Bucktails! They are one of the most effective lures for targeting fluke all season. This early season fluke was caught drifting along a sod bank sitting right on a drop off.

Once the State sets the regulations they will be posted here.

Until then here’s what we can expect… Jim Hutchinson Jr. at The Fisherman, shared the following details about the possibilities of the New Jersey Summer Flounder (Fluke) Fishing Regulations. “At this point it looks like status quo for 2019. The NJDEP officials are still mulling over the options. In all likelihood we’ll have the same three fish bag at 18″ and the same season length (most likely Opening Day Will be Friday May 24, closing on Sept 21).”

Jim said, “We’ll have a full write up in the April edition of The Fisherman. It will spell out everything.”
