Two weeks later this year, that means we can fish all three days for fluke. It's on Captain Jacks website

Brad has the right dates. Are you looking at the wrong site maybe? Captain Jerry, aka captain kayak.

Yes, they are the right dates, just stating it is being held 2 weeks later than last year. And we will have all three days for fluke rather the one day last year.

I'm getting married the following weekend and I fully expect to be running around with last minute preparations around this time so sadly I think I'm going to be sitting out of this years tournament.

Reconsider, it's the perfect antidote for the stress and madness that'll be your life for that period ;)

It's the same date every year....always the weekend after Mothers day.

Last year was the week before memorial weekend. Now it's 2 weeks before. And there's no regs in place yet for the 2016 fluke season yet. Is there?

Yup, and last year you could only fish for fluke on that Sunday when the season started.

pfd161, I was wrong, basically the same time:

 

2015 Kayak Fishing Classic at Jamaica Bay Tournament May 14th to May 17th 2015.

 

2016 Kayak Fishing Classic at Jamaica Bay Tournament May 12th to May 15th 2016.

 

Anybody know when NY Fluke Season starts, If it is the 15th one day for fluke like last year, if the 22th looks like it will be a striper and blue event. Will just have to wait. RJ

Yeah I know. I caught a 22" fluke on Saturday on an sp minnow in a foot of water. Wouldn't let me enter it. I wasn't even targeting fluke. All I had were plugs in my yak.

Looks like latest regs show may 17. Guess we will be fishing for bass, blues, and Weaks!

Regs aren't set yet for anyone on the east coast yet. That was the start date of last years season.

That is still being discussed. In July they called for a reduction. I think Jersey got approved to be on their own again and not lumped with NY and CT. March the earliest anyone would know about the new regs.
