    24 inch flounder !

    My 91 year old Dad caught a 24 inch flounder In Ocean City's Great Egg Harbor Bay two days ago !
    Problem is the legal flounder season ended days before Labor Day !
    There is an 18 inch minimum catch size during the season.
    We kept maybe 1 in 20 flounder caught this season!
    Real heartbreaker when you catch a 17 or 17 1/2 incher and have to throw it back !
    I have not seen a 24 incher caught on any of our boats in at least 25 years !
    Oh: we DO have PHOTOS of his 24 inch monster?
    I wonder how old this flounder was to have gotten to 24 inches in size?
    Sadly I pulled the boat for winter lay-up today !
    Our boating & Fishing season is sadly over !
    Now it's time to winterize the 24 ' American Skier Eagle
    And~
    Start restoration on the Donzi 18 C " Benchseat Gentleman's Racer" project !

    I caught several 20" Fluke late August off Holgate in the inlet.How long was that laying in the sun a fresh fluke should not look dehydrated as that. Nice catch!I want to see wet and slimmy fish.

    18 1/2 " Minimum keeper size limit in NJ

    We caught that 24" and a 26" fluke earlier last summer.

    The 2010 NJ flounder minimum legal keeper size is 18 1/2" !
    Looks like we will not be taking very many home for dinner this year !
    Sadly most will be "Throw-backs".
    I often wonder how many of these "throw-back" undersize fish do not survive being caught and let-go ?
