    Default Where Are The Keepers?

    Made it to the ramp just before sun up. The only one there was a fox that acted like he wanted to go fishing with us. Had to throw rocks at him to get him to go away.
    Caught a lot of fish. Lost count in the 30's on the flounder, in the 20's on the trout and about 7 or 8 drum. Everything was short except 1 nice 20" flounder! Lost another one that was pulling some pretty good drag before coming loose.
    Around 60 fish and only one keeper! At least we were catching!

    Nice one!!! I hate to hear they plan to close the season unsure if this will help as I think recreational fishermen do not hurt the resources that much. Hard to find keepers in most species now and I think a lot of small fish released do not survive

    NC has a statutory requirement to end overfishing within a given time-frame when that species is determined overfished. Southern flounder has been declining for decades. This closure was needed to allow time for a more finely-tuned management plan to achieve the ultimate goal of a sustainable fishery by increasing spawning stock. Makes no difference how or by whom the fish is removed hence the closure.
