yes Party Boats stand on the fact they are a recreational fishery, essentially a taxi to the fishing grounds in which case every passenger should have the same quota as if on the sand or a private vessel, no tossing them an extra fish to encourage ticket sales

 

The funny thing is that down in the Gulf of Mexico, where this sector separation stuff started, the for-hires are all about being held accountable, believing that being held accountable is good for the fish, and that what is good for the fish is good for their business.

 

It's a mirror image of what we have up here.  Down there, the for-hires tend to be the responsible parties, who were hurt by the private boats chronically overfishing their red snapper quota, then continuing to fish in state waters when the federal season was closed and federally- permitted charter and party boats had to shut down.  Sector separation allowed them to have a longer federal waters season without being hurt by the private boats' excesses; they fish under the same bag and size limits as private vessels.  Here, the for-hires want special bag and/or size limits and/or seasons, and so take more of the quota that they share with the private boats and surfcasters.

Anybody having solid bluefish action in SS nassau county? I usually have no issues finding them but just can’t seem to so far. 

Keep searching! The last 3 Times I went to look for the blue. I was skunked.
