Re: Commercial fluke fishery closed in Mass.
Is the Belford boat Bellatrix still in operation? Back in late 60's we saw it had a Huuuuuuge school of bass in the net within sight of North Beach at 8 am on a saturday. It and another boat just offshore were boarded by the Monmouth Beach marine police when the Belford MP boat was "unable" to respond. I seem to remember the two boats had 24,000 lbs of very large bass in their holds. Both crews arrested and ultimately fined $1000 per.
