Remote Name:


One vessel fished Stellwagen shoal water, 80-100 feet, this past week. The charter returned with mostly scrod. What they lacked in size, they made up for in number, filliing all the boxed on board. Feb 1- April 30th, the Gulf of Maine including Stellwagen will be closed to commercial fishing. No new restrictions will be imposed on recreational, charter or party vessels as a result of this closure. Catch B-Fast Display at the National Fishing and Outdoor Expo, Nassau Coliseum, LI, NY, Jan 29-31.
