Default Re: Fishing Reports Winter 2019

As an alternative to fishing, I considered going clamming. I picked up some waders for waterfowl hunting that I did not do this year.

But just found out since I am no longer a state resident, clamming is restricted to a narrow window of the summer months.

Looks like the rolled the clamming and crabbing license into a single fee.

You need to check out New Jersey?s site. It?s not the most user friendly, but clamming is not restricted to residents only. I clam often enough and though I?m a resident I know that you can purchase a non-resident recreational shellfish license for $20. Check out the link if you?re truly interested. And make sure you follow up on the water classification charts for the region you intend on clamming. Also make sure there are access points. The lovely thing about this great state is that there are far too few access points for zones open to clamming. A few good ones have become over crowded in the last 5 years or so. Kayak and or boat helps but is not necessary if you know where to go.

Yes, I had already checked that link out. Other NJ resources document restrictions for Non-Resident Clamming with more clarity..."License valid only during June, July, August and September."

It's like you need to be a lawyer sometimes to fish in NJ!

Rob, these are White Perch you're talking about? They are on my list for "new fish to harrass." I would guess that they could be caught in hard water, too. I think I will finally get to try for them this spring, like as soon as Toms River opens up and my guides won't freeze solid.

!

I don't think they enforce the rules in the winter, though... maybe.
I'm a non-resident, too, and asked the same question earlier in the month.

I've never encountered a CO in NJ.

In other states, they generally only want to see your fishing license, so how would they know?

It's not like the CO would ask why my car has a VA plate? It's not his job to enforce motor vehicles. No?

I do believe I am still in the NJ system as far as previous fishing/hunting licenses. I still own several properties in NJ and have family there, so I could always just reference those locations in the registration.

But I want to keep everything legal.

Just for giggles, I just went thru the NJ fishing/hunting license site and logged in. It allowed me to log in with my Resident info and still had my NJ address, then I validated child support and it let me pick a license and all the way up to paying for the purchase and I stopped there.

As the National Socialists have taken over NJ, I would not be surprised if one day a CO asks "Zeigen Sie Ihren Pass?" or to present my wrist to show the tattoo with my NJ ID number! Ha! (Yes, that's a bit extreme - just havin fun!)

Just a word for the other side...
Sitting in an office writing rules and trying to cobble up a system that's pretty fairly administered and kind of functional isn't my idea of fun. Also, with no system and no enforcement the resource would be stripped pretty damn fast.
As a real Out-of-Stater, I'm delighted that they let me fish (or clam) here at all.

There are places where you will get checked while clamming (just like certain times and places are checked more frequently for anglers). Other places very unlikely.

Also, you're behavior will draw attention even if you might not otherwise be checked.

Not likely, but if you are out there all day, it's likely you've got a whole lot more than the allotted 150 clams. If you have a crowd of people, all are supposed to have clamming licenses, not just you, even if "only you" are clamming.

Collins cove down here used to be a favorite ice-fishing spot for white perch.
We don't have much fishable hard saltwater nowadays, and that spot seems to be less of a hot spot...from what I'm told. I don't ice-fish so have never ventured over there.


But yeah, Toms River I would suspect hold them... don't really know that much about the Toms (except the upper, freshwater, stretches)

All clear until next week


We are in this pattern where storms are swinging to our west, keeping us in the warm sector of rain each time.


A few clippers might bring us snow, but not sure when a coastal storm will form off the coast to give a true winter dump of snow. Should happen, but who knows when.
