Getting ready to up my game a little.  May is time for "Baby Everything."  Need more tanks, so I can keep all the little guys safe from the big guys and the exotics that will come later.

 

The tank on the right is the one I've put pics of so far.  I think it's a 40 gallon.  The empty one, getting filled tomorrow, I think is a 90, and that will hold all the bigger guys and exotic stuff I hope to get as the summer goes on.

 

For anyone that lives in between Point Pleasant and Cape May, if you wind up catching anything small and awesome, I'll come to you if you'd like to make a donation.

I've never seen a big one caught up here.  Always little guys, late summer.  I guess they all die once the water gets into the 60s, and none of them have a chance to grow.  If they did, in the lagoons, we'd occasionally catch a big one, but it's always babies.

 

We've had a few occasion where we've been able to keep them alive all winter, then release them in the inlet the following July.  Whether or not they ever made it, who knows, but at least they were given a chance.

Bigger ones mix with snook in the docklights down in FL, they usually stay pretty deep during the day.  Never seen one up here very cool to see they make it up this far, even if they’re babies.

It's kind of funny.  These 2 are actually inseparable.  I really thought the little should be concerned that the big one would eat him, but I guess not.

Would this be considered poaching? The regulated species anyway? 

Too many people are taking the fun out of life already.

of course not, it's considered long term catch and release, look it up in the NJ fish and game regs

By the letter of the law, probably.

 

By anyone who isn't ****ing insane, probably not.

I think he has a special permit or something and works with local aquarium. I could be mixed up but think I remember that detail from a prior thread.
