I understand the DMF voted for a rec and commercial closure beginning early September.  Does anyone know more detail on this?  PS - I have greatly enjoyed the fish reports and pics recently!

Goal is to get a 62% reduction in 2019 and 72% reduction in 2020 forward.

Hook and line- Rec season projected to close sometime by the end of next week and will not reopen until August 16, 2020 for a season that will run through Sept 30.

Commercial season closes next week and then will reopen on Sept 15, 2019 with staggered closes North to South- Northern – Sept. 15 through Oct. 13;  Central – Sept. 15 through Oct. 17; and Southern – Sept. 15 through Nov. 2.

The 2020 commercial season will be- Northern – Sept. 15 through Oct. 6; Central – Sept 15 through Oct. 11; and Southern – Sept 15 through Oct. 20.

Why the variances in dates and why is anyone allowed to take flounder after the first closure date?

I heard it's twenty fish per day.

Think about this math-

SC has basically zero commercial landings of southern flounder.  They have reserved that stock for the recreational sector, which is smart if you're trying to drive coastal economies with the biggest bang for the buck.

NC allows commercials to land about 80% and recreational anglers to land 20% of its total combined harvest of Southern flounder.

Here's where the math comes in-

The rec limit is four fish per day.  If NC gave 100% to the recreational sector like SC does then recs would get anther 4/5 of total landings or 16 additional fish taking our rec limit to 20 fish per day...exactly what SC allows.
