Cape May County, NJ weakfish late June 2013.
The weakfish has carved a special place within many saltwater fishermen. If you are one of them, do not miss this week’s episode of On The Water fishing show. Sunday at 10AM on Comcast SportsNet New England. The show is all about the fish that are found in the New Jersey region. The weakfish are making a come back, due to the efforts of many saltwater fishermen. They took the time to write a letter, attend a hearing or make a phone call, asking for a moratorium. It is such a beautiful thing to see the purple hue of the weakfish return to our waters. The management system works best when the participants get involved.
