Long Island, Metro NY - North Shore Fishing Reports

UPDATE YOUR LICENSE AND REGISTRY, AND MORE ON CIRCLE HOOKS

The season is fast approaching and it’s a good time to make sure your freshwater fishing license and marine registry are up-to-date. There are plenty of options for getting it done as managing editor Matt Broderick explains in this week’s E-News. The ASMFC’s Striped Bass Board will be meeting on March 14 to discuss possible changes to the requirement of using circle hooks when bait fishing for striped bass. The results of that meeting will guide the state’s circle hook regulations. Senior editor Fred Golofaro has the info you need to listen on the meeting.
