Huge Cut Back in Bluefish. 3 fish bag including snappers for private anglers

In this episode, George talks about his long-standing opposition to the original Bluefish plan that included the transfer of quota from the recreational sector to the commercial sector. Come to think of it now that we are seeing a separate for hire mode, why not give the fish to them. They won't catch them either.

George also speaks with the Dustin Colson Learning, the ASMFC Fishery Management Plan Coordinator for Bluefish, northern shrimp, summer flounder, scup, winter flounder

about the plans for the future of this great gamefish. The fact is that bluefish are in much worse shape than striped bass, yet no one seems to care. When you consider we're catching too many striped bass, and too few bluefish that alone should explain it.
