Fluke Management: New Sense Of Urgency
If your fishing logs for five consecutive years show consistent fluke catches along a particular inshore lump for the entire month of July, yet in season six you’re skunked all the way through August, what does this tell you about the fishing?.. “It’s kind of early to figure out what’s going to happen, but it sure gives us a sense of urgency,” said Greg Hueth on July 28 at an SSFFF presentation to local stakeholders at the Reel Seat in Brielle. Hueth said scientists are “very interested in what we’re doing” in terms of the current work by researchers at the universities at Rutgers and Cornell, while adding “hopefully we’ll get a seat at the table next summer,” where the commissioned research findings can be presented.
