LIGHTNING PHENOMENA Most lightning strikes occur in the afternoon--70 percent between noon and 6:00 p.m. As the air temperatures warm, evaporation increases. This warm, moisture-laden air rises and evaporates, forming fluffy cumulus clouds. As more moisture accumulates, the clouds darken and change into cumulus nimbus clouds--thunderstorm clouds--frequently, with a flattened top or anvil shape, reaching to 40,000 feet or more. Let’s consider a few possibilities. Lightning strikes the ungrounded radio antenna on your boat. The metal antenna carries the electrical charge to the radio, which does not have a good conductor to the water. Your hand is on the radio, or on metal connected to the radio. Your feet are on a wet surface, which is in contact with metal which extends through the hull of the boat to the water. Your body may then become the best conductor for the electrical charge.

LIGHTNING-PROTECTED BOATS There is no such thing as lightning-proof boats, only lightning-protected boats. All-metal ships are rarely damaged, and injuries or deaths are uncommon. These ships are frequently struck, but the high conductivity of the large quantities of metal, with hundreds of square yards of hull in direct contact with the water, causes rapid dissipation of the electrical charge. But small boats are seldom made of metal. Their wood and fiberglass construction do not provide the automatic grounding protection offered by metal-hulled craft. Therefore, when lightning strikes a small boat, the electrical current is searching any route to ground and the human body is an excellent conductor of electricity! Today’s fiberglass-constructed small boats, especially sailboats, are particularly vulnerable to lightning strikes since any projection above the flat surface of the water acts as a potential lightning rod. In many cases, the small boat operator or casual weekend sailor is not aware of this vulnerability to the hazards of lightning. These boats can be protected from lightning strikes by properly designed and connected systems of lightning protection. However, the majority of these boats are not so equipped. Lightning protection systems do not prevent lightning strikes. They may, in fact, increase the possibilities of the boat being struck. The purpose of lightning protection is to reduce the damage to the boat and the possibility of injuries or death to the passengers from a lightning strike.

If you are considering the purchase of a new or used boat, determine if it is equipped with a A second example is a sailboat. Lightning strikes the mast. The electrical current follows the properly designed and installed lightning protection system. Such a system is generally more mast or wire rope to your hands, through your body to the wet surface, and then through the effective and less costly than a system installed on a boat after it has been constructed. hull to the water.

Further, the connections must be secure and noncorrosive. accurate, but small localized storms might not be reported. Therefore, it is important that boaters learn to read the weather. On a large power boat or sailboat, a properly designed and grounded antenna could provide a cone of protection. Presently, however, the vast majority of the radio antenna is totally Watch for the development of large well-defined rising cumulus clouds. Once they reach 30,000 feet the thunderstorm is generally developing. Now is the time to head for shore. As unsuitable for lightning protection. This is also true of the wires feeding the antenna.

Watch for distant lighting. Listen for distant thunder. You may hear the thunder before you Sailboats with portable masts, or those with the mast mounted on the cabin roof, are can see the lightning on a bright day. Seldom will you hear thunder more than five miles particularly vulnerable as they are usually the least protected as far as grounding or bonding from its source. That thunder was caused by lightning 25 seconds earlier. The sound of is concerned. thunder travels at one mile per five seconds. You are two miles from shore. The thunderstorm which is now five miles away is traveling in your direction at 20 miles per hour, which means it could be overhead within 15 minutes. Can you reach shore--two miles away--and seek shelter within that time? You better move!

Ideally, an effective ground plate should be installed on the outside of all boats when the hulls are constructed. Unfortunately, this is not often done. Such a ground plate would help manufacturers design safer lightning protection systems for the boats.

DARK OPS- How - How Nightfishing Dark Ops to: to: Nightfishing

By Lenny Rudow

In the heat of summer, the night bite is the right bite.

by Lenny Rudow

Okay—you’ve got the gear, the sun’s getting low on the horizon, and you’re psyched to hook into some serious scale. What next? That depends on whether you’ll be chasing croaker, stripers, and trout, or swords and tuna.

Bay Breeze You wish for zero competition on the water, dead-calm seas, comfy-cool temperatures, and a red-hot bite— during the dog days of summer? You can enjoy these conditions, if you just plan on leaving the dock as the sun goes down, instead of as it rises. Whether you fish the bay or ocean, at this time of year night fishing is the best way to experience awesome action in ideal surroundings. Ready to catch fish while the rest of the world is catching Z’s? Then check out these tactics, fill up the fuel tank, and brew a fresh thermos of coffee. Gearing Up To try night fishing, you’ll need some special equipment. Flashlights, obviously. But you’ll need your hands for tying knots and baiting hooks, so get lights that clips to your hat brim (such as Pelican Lights, available at Bass Pro Shops for about $15) or headlamps that you wear like a hat (Petzel or Survival Systems, between $30 and $50, available at REI or Bass Pro Shops). You’ll also need night lights for your boat--the more light you can put on the water, the more bait you’ll attract. The more bait you attract, the more big fish you’ll catch. White halogens work but for pure fish-attracting value you can’t beat green fluorescent light tubes. The good ones are expensive (the Hydro Glow, for example, available through Melton Tackle runs about $200, but they’ll throw a halo of green light 30’ around the boat. In bays, menhaden are attracted to it like moths to a porch light. Offshore, the green glow sucks in squid like a vacuum. At times like these, one throw of the cast net or a few drops with a squid jig provides a livewell full of prime baits. Bass Pro Shops has their own smaller versions of green night lights, as do a couple of other companies. While I’m sure they work I can’t vouch for them, as I haven’t tried them personally.

When inshore species are on the menu for a night fishing trip, you’ll want to stick with baits. Stinky baits, that is. Soft or peeler crab, bloodworms, shrimp, and squid can all be effective. Live baits are also a good choice, and as mentioned earlier, can usually be caught right next to your lights with a dip or cast net. No matter what bait you choose, put some on bottom and some near the surface; just as you do during the day, you’ll want to cover the entire water column. Your surface and mid-depth baits should be deployed at or near the “light line,” where the light peters out into darkness, as opposed to inside the bright halo of light. Most predators will cruise the dark side while trying to spot baitfish, so they’re not seen by the bait, and will dart in and out of the light to pick off strays. Whether you’re using livies or cut bait, remember that so far as tackle goes less is more. Skirts, teasers, and flashing blades won’t help in these conditions, so stick with plain hooks and minimal rigging. Where to set up depends on which species you plan to target. Points at river mouths and points with sharp drops and shell bottoms, channel edges, and bridges with their own lightlines are all good places to look for trout and stripers. Once you’ve found a good spot, drop anchor and set out your night lights. When it comes to croaker, shallower flats adjacent to channels are a better pick.

Some anglers also use small lights that attach directly to their lines, usually at the line-to-leader swivel, or they clip a cylume light stick on. When fishing for big game offshore, like tunas or swordfish, these lights are considered a must. In the bay, however, their effect is debatable. If you’re not worried about the budget check out clip-ons like the Electralume, which are pressure-activated LEDs that go for about $30 each.

If you want to specifically target stripers, find a well-lighted bridge with relatively deep water in the channel (at least 15’) and a decent current. You’ll also need to fill your livewell with live peanut bunker. Anchor up-current (or up-wind, if there is little or no current) within easy casting distance of the bridge’s light line, where it crosses over the the channel. The best spots have close access to water with a lightline that crosses into a shallower zone near by, because stripers will frequent these intersections during both cycles of the tide. If you set up in a spot surrounded only by shallow water, for example, you’re not likely to have much success on a low tide. But if you set up in a spot surrounded only by deep water, you’re not likely to have much success during a flood tide—so whenever possible, find a light-line that has the best of both worlds.

Another tool all night anglers need is a good handheld spotlight. You shouldn’t cruise with it on, since it will destroy your night vision. But in bays and inlets a strong spotlight is invaluable when you’re trying to find channel markers and other landmarks.

Once you’ve pinpointed your hotspot, cast out live peanut bunker rigged on a single short-shank hook with a four-foot leader of 30-lb to 40-lb fluorocarbon and no weight, and cast it towards the lightline. Then let the baitfish swim wherever he likes, with a slack line and the reel set to freespool. If there are

The Ultimate Fish Scaler The fish scaler was designed to make the fish scaling process enjoyable. The unit removes the scales from any size fish with out damaging it’s skin. It can be used with 120volt AC outlet or 12volt DC on your boat, camper etc. This unit will expedite the process of scaling fish with no effort. The following are more amazing facts about The Ultimate Fish Scaler: • Scales fish easily and quickly • Minimizes the mess • Portable (Small enough to fit in your tackle box) • Light weight and very maneuverable • Soft Rubber handle for a comfortable grip • Unique blade design for safety will not cut or hurt operator when in use. • No maintenance required • Left or right-handed people can use it • Provided with a clip to hang when not in use • Clear cover snaps on and off for easy cleaning • Rust Resistant Visit www.theultimatefishscaler.com to watch it in action.

Shurhold’s Dual Action Polisher The design goal of Shurhold’s Dual Action Polisher was to allow users to achieve the same high gloss, professional finish that the pros do with a rotary buffer/polisher, but in a unit that less-experienced, everyday users can operate with the same effectiveness. Traditional rotary polishers have a larger wheel spinning at a high rpm, which means the operator’s technique is important as to avoid burns and swirls. The Shurhold polisher’s dual action, 6 inch oscillating head eliminates these issues, and allows anyone to get the same great finish, without burns or swirls. General detail maintenance like waxing and buffing can now be done in half the time, with half the effort and half the amount of product.

THE QUICKIE By Captain Ramsey Chason

Everyone loves a quickie. Running both a 68’ Hatteras and 43’ Viking express with out a full-time mate, I’ve

grown to appreciate quick fixes. Sometimes shaving twenty or thirty minutes off a cleaning or maintenance project gives the added time to tweak your tackle or rig baits, especially true at tournament time. Here’s a list of my favorites. • • • • • • • •

• •

Before washing your boat next time, apply liquid flitz metal polish to all of your stainless. After washing and shamying the boat the stainless will be cleaned and polished in half the time. When waxing the boat, wax over your stainless as well, that will add the protective coating missing from the flitz. (After using Flitz, it is always recommended to use another high quality protective wax. I use Collonite Fleet or Insulator waxes) Use a hose clamp to compress your raw water pump impeller next time it’s due for a change. After applying rain-x to your EZ2CY spray curtains, use a damp shamy to remove the haze instead of buffing with a dry cloth. When stripping line off reels, run all of the lines through the top eye of one rod. The larger diameter makes it easier to grab and all are finished in the time it takes to strip one. If you have teak covering boards, once a month, after washing down the boat, give them a quick hand sanding with 100 grit wet/dry sandpaper. This will keep off the fuzz that develops after cleaning teak and will prolong the time between more aggressive sanding. If you routinely oil your teak, try mixing your regular oil half and half with Watco Teak oil. Watco teak oil contains a mildewcide that will stave off the development of mildew in the oiled teak, keeping your teak bright and clean longer than a traditional oil application. Next time you’re changing the skirts on your Marlin plugs and artificial lures with octopus skirts try this. After trimming off the proper amount, turn them inside out and spray the inside of the hole with Pledge or any other furniture polish, then push the head through backwards. Check for proper fit and then tie off with waxed thread. Grab the tail of the skirt in one hand and the head in the other; pull the tail of the skirt toward the butt of the plug head. For the outer skirt, begin as you did for the inner skirt with trimming, turning inside out and soaking with Pledge. The difference is now you insert all of the inner skirt through the hole. Grab the inner skirt with one hand and the outer skirt with the other and firmly pull in opposite directions. Finish off by tying outer skirt with waxed floss and pulling the skirt back to its right-side-out position. While we are discussing Marlin plugs, how are you securing the hookset to the rear of your lures? By gluing a hook lock (a rubber piece similar to a door stopper or bumper) to the rear of your lures you can control the hooks ride angle with out cumbersome toothpicks. I apply small petcocks to the bottom of my Racor fuel filter bowls. This makes draining water from the filter housing much easier and cleaner than removing the bolt that comes with the units. However, you must add checking these petcocks to your engine room check list, accidentally knocking one open can create a nasty mess!

You and and Your YourDiesel DIESEL FUEL ... KeepingItItClean Clean You Fuel...Keeping Marshall Solomon, Marsh Marine

I

am often asked, “What can I do as a boat owner to keep my diesel fuel clean?” Without clean fuel your boat is not dependable, safe, or fun. Maybe you have been lucky and never been stranded by clogged fuel filters, but have no doubt, when it does happen, it will be a very bad day boating! Furthermore, with the cost of fuel rising each week, this issue is becoming ever more important.

I

n previous articles, I’ve written about what can happen as fuel ages and sits for extended periods of time. If you’ve followed these stories, then you know there are two major contaminants which can spoil your fuel; water and sludge. Notice here that I have not listed Algae. I hope by now that most of you have learned enough from my articles to know that Algae cannot exist in your fuel or tank. The term is often incorrectly used to describe the black, gooey mess that typically is found on your fuel filters. This is not Algae; it is break down fuel and is actually a substance called Asphaltenes.

W

ater is probably the worst contaminant. Water will do serious damage to your fuel delivery machinery, namely your fuel pump and certainly your fuel injectors. Injectors are meant to spray diesel fuel into the engine’s cylinders under extreme pressure. This spray must be so fine that is it is virtually a vapor. Too heavy a spray and the fuel will not ignite. To accomplish this, the injectors have spray nozzles which have minute holes in them. Depending on the type, these holes usually range in size from 7 to 10 thousands of an inch in diameter. Visualize holes which are just twice that of a human hair! If water is pumped through these hot injector tips the holes become eroded destroying the tip’s ability to create a proper vapor pattern. Sometimes the water will crystallize the tip rendering it useless. The point here is that water can cause serious Good / Water Homogenized and expensive engine damage. Most of the time water in the fuel will settle to the bottom of the tank. Here it can be removed without damaging the fuel, but it can also become so mixed into Photo 1 the fuel it becomes homogenized. When this happens it will never separate from the fuel and all the fuel must be disposed. Water homogenized fuel has a milky pink color (See photo 1). This is the most dangerously contaminated fuel. Run it long and you will destroy your fuel delivery system.

T

he next and most often found contaminant is sludge. I use sludge as a collective term for it can be either inert or biological. Biological sludge is caused by bacteria and/or fungi growing in the diesel fuel where water is present. Believe it or not, but this, from my experience in having cleaned hundreds and hundreds of tanks, is actually rare. It cannot occur without the presence of water since this is needed for the biological to grow. Though rare, this is another very bad condition to clean up. Inert sludge is the most commonly found. This brown to black goop is what has become known as Algae. It seems to be alive since it appears to grow in the fuel. This “growing” process is really microscopic fuel components breaking down and forming larger clusters. This clustering tendency is called agglomeratation and as previously stated, is called Asphaltenes (See Photo 2). Call it what you might, this is the substance most often found in your fuel. Fortunately, it is the easiest to prevent. Let’s see how.

These are the things you can do to keep your fuel clean:

continued from page 32

• Use your boat regularly. Boats idle for long periods of time provide the perfect, stagnant environment for diesel fuel deterioration and biological growth formation. • Purchase fuel from a reliable source. If the fuel is not clean to start, it won’t get better with time. • Install the largest fuel filters you can. There is no such thing as too large a fuel filter. Examine your fuel filters regularly and change them frequently. Filters are cheap compared to engine repairs! • If you do not have them, install AlgaeX magnetic fuel conditioners on the fuel intake lines (See Photo 3). These no- maintenance units break the molecular bonds in Asphaltenes and thus prevent their agglomeration. • Use a quality fuel additive. These specialized chemicals will provide protection for your fuel. But beware, these additives are totally unregulated by any government agency and many offer nothing but smoke and mirror claims. A good additive should provide: a fuel stabilizer to reduce storage deterioration, a lubricity agent to lubricate the fuel delivery components, a biocide to prevent any biological growth, and most importantly, prevent and dissolve sludge.

I

n coming articles I will be examining the operation of AlgaeX’s magnetic fuel conditioners and various fuel additives on the market. Even though I am an AlgaeX service dealer, for my money there is no better fuel additive than AlgaeX’s AFC 705 Fuel Catalyst. It provides all these benefits and more. Simply put, it is the best fuel protection insurance one can buy.

W

ith fuel being the life blood of your boat and too expensive these days to waste, you must develop a fuel maintenance program such as outlined above. If you don’t, write my phone number down ‘cause eventually you’ll be calling me.

S

ee you next month when we’ll examine AlgaeX’s magnetic fuel conditioners and see just how they work.

continued from page 16 stripers in the area, they’ll hop all over it. Big Water Blackness Offshore night fishing is beyond spectacular, it’s the experience of a lifetime. Of course, you have to be doublecareful. Leave the dock early enough to ensure you reach the fishing grounds well before darkness sets in, and buddy-boating is a great way to ensure your safety. Obviously, it should only be attempted when the weather report is absolutely ideal. Whether you intend on hunting tunas or swords, the basic technique is the same: pick a canyon edge, offshore hump, or temperature break, and set up as much light as you can muster. Note that in the deep it will be impossible to anchor and drift fishing is the usual tactic, but on humps that come up to 200’ or less, anchoring can be more comfortable since the waves won’t be hitting you on the beam. Bring along butterfish for chunks and bait, but plan to switch to live squid as soon as possible. Usually, they’ll show up about an hour after the sun sets. If they don’t, chances are there aren’t many predators around, either. Most of the night feed is on squid and if they aren’t in the area, a move is usually in order. Catch the squid with squid jigs (available at most coastal tackle shops) or by scooping them up with a long-handled dip net. As soon as you have one squirming on the deck, hook it once through the tip of the mantle with a short-shank 8/0 hook rigged to 80-lb. to 150-lb. leader (go heavy if you expect to find swords, lighter for the tunas).

light line, because you may be able to spot fish coming in to eat them. Also be sure to keep an eye on the squid, even if your livewell is chock-full. Often you can predict a bite by watching them. When they all dart from one side of the boat to the other, or suddenly disappear, it’s commonly because there’s a large predator on the prowl near by. Trying to bring in a tuna or billfish is tough enough during the day, much less at night, so it’s better to be safe than sorry; when you hook up, get the other lines out of the way. Leaving a light in the water is helpful for the gaffman, but pull the light in as close to the boat as possible while the fight goes on. And as usual, keep the chunks flowing and you may be able to hold a school of tuna at the boat. Remember that in all cases, when your boat is off the dock in the dark someone must be awake and on watch at all times, period. Do your running before the sun goes downt, which is clearly safer than running in the dark. And give everyone onboard a light stick and a whistle, and have them attach it to their wrist or a belt loop with a rubber band, so that they can signal you or another boat in case of emergency. Take the proper precautions, plan ahead, and try night fishing this summer, and you’ll likely discover there’s a whole new galaxy of fishing out there. One that’s effective, comfortable, and incredibly enjoyable. Open your eyes, and take a look in the dark. The author’s book Rudow’s Guide to Fishing the Mid Atlantic has more information on night fishing along the Atlantic coast, both inshore and offshore. The new Rudow’s Guide to Rockfish includes extensive info on how tonight fish for stripers in specific.

Stagger your lines at the surface, 50’, 100’, 150’, and 200’ down. For weighted lines attach the lead with a rubber-band, so it breaks away when you hook up a fish. Use balloons as floats (except on your surface lines) and attach a different color light stick to each so you can identify which line is which at a glance. Chunk continually and try to get your surface baits near the light line, as you would in the bay. Be sure to watch the chunks as they pass through the 36 I found it in The Coastal Mariner

RFA CHARGES ENVIROS WITH USING OIL TO START A FIRE Fishermen Say It’s Time For Preservationists To Put Up Or Shut Up The New York Times is reporting at least one environmental non-governmental organization (ENGO) is using the tragedy in the Gulf of Mexico as a calling card for fisheries reform. The Center for Biological Diversity, a non-profit ENGO heavily supported by the oil-endowed Pew Charitable Trusts, is citing the Gulf oil spill as a reason why the U.S. Government should list bluefin tuna on the endangered species list. The Center for Biological Diversity filed a request under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) in May demanding the government declare bluefin an endangered species. The ESA process typically takes several years, but with scientists actively looking at how the Deepwater Horizon tragedy could affect spawning bluefin in the Gulf, it’s led to increased media opportunities for groups like Center for Biological Diversity which self-purportedly use “science, law and creative media to secure a future for all species, great or small, hovering on the brink of extinction.” Jim Donofrio, Executive Director of the Recreational Fishing Alliance (RFA), says using the Gulf tragedy to drum up support for anti-fishing measures may be creative, but it’s also disingenuous. “An ESA listing on bluefin could be devastating for our recreational fishing community, our anglers know that and so do the ENGO’s.” Donofrio said as a rights-based organization RFA is wary about ESA designations due to the potential ramifications of incidental bycatch. “The ENGO’s tried to get white marlin listed as endangered several years ago, which would’ve shut down many of the top offshore tournaments in America and could’ve led to more serious gear restrictions in our recreational sector,” Donofrio said, explaining that the same high-speed trolling tactics employed by tuna trollers result in billfish hook-ups. Donofrio pointed out ENGO’s have already set a precedent in forcing anglers out of California’s marine protected areas citing what they have called ‘damaging effects of mortality associated with catch and release programs on long-lived fish populations.’ “Bluefin are frequently found mixed with billfish and yellowfin on the offshore grounds, as well as striped bass in some of our inshore grounds like Cape Cod and along the Outer Banks,” Donofrio said. “The South Atlantic Fishery Management Council just closed 5,000 square miles of South Atlantic waters to all bottomfishing to protect against snapper bycatch, so imagine what a pelagic ban could do.” The RFA agrees with leading scientists who believe it’s virtually certain that eggs and larvae have been killed in the Gulf spill, which comes at the worst possible time of the year as spawning season for many Gulf fish stocks runs throughout the summer. But while the resource devastation will undoubtedly have some type of impact on bluefin and other stocks in the Gulf region, to use the spill has a reason to go for full-blown ESA listing is going too far, too fast, and without any scientific guidance. “Right now there’s no science to support such a measure, nor have I seen any literature that finds the oil will result in a spawning failure for bluefin or other pelagic species,” said John Depersenaire, RFA’s Fisheries Policy & Science Researcher. “Marlin and bluefin are longlived species that can get by with a couple years of very poor recruitment, so even if the 2010 year Gulf class is a complete failure it will not necessarily damage the overall health of the stock.” Depersenaire pointed out that the current restrictions in the recreational bluefin fishery this season should already lead to the some of the lowest fishing mortality for bluefin on record, while adding “the spawning stock is already being protected.” For researchers like Depersenaire who have followed the plight of the bluefin stock for years, there is a relatively simple answer to the bluefin conservation question, but it requires an end to the rhetoric and a State Department willing to protect American interests. “The U.S. is already protecting the spawning stock, it’s time all other ICCAT contracting parties do the same; and if they don’t, then impose trade sanctions,” Depersenaire said. ICCAT is 40 I found it in The Coastal Mariner

August 2010

the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas, an inter-governmental fishery organization responsible for the conservation of tunas and tuna-like species in the Atlantic Ocean and adjacent seas. “It’s been well-established through ICCAT and our own State Department that the European Union (EU) has been overfishing their quotas for years, even subsidizing the expansion of their national bluefin tuna fleets,” said Donofrio. “The EU keeps overfishing the stock, the Japanese keep buying up the illegal harvest, and here in the United States a well-financed environmental movement is punishing our American anglers.” The RFA has openly lobbied for international trade sanctions against the EU for most of this decade, and the group believes it’s time to pressure the Department of Commerce again for increased protection on behalf of America’s fishing communities. “If these ENGO’s really wish to protect bluefin, they should put up some of that oil money they’ve received in charitable contributions and help cure the disease as opposed to just treating the symptoms,” Donofrio said. In 2002, the RFA filed a petition for relief under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 asking then President G.W. Bush to take action against the EU for ICCAT noncompliance. The RFA argued that EU’s disregard for quotas and management measures caused bluefin, blue marlin and white marlin stocks to seriously decline, resulting in injury to U.S. commerce. RFA’s 301 petition received tremendous support from Congress, recreational and commercial fishing organizations, and environmentalists alike, and led to high-level assurances by the Department of Commerce under the Bush administration that the EU would be held to its international obligations. Rich Ruais, executive director of the American Bluefin Tuna Association and Blue Water Fishermen’s Association, called the 301 petition “an important and legitimate first step” towards getting the EU to begin complying with ICCAT. “Highly migratory species are truly shared resources and we cannot conserve and rebuild these stocks only on the backs of US recreational and commercial fishermen,” he said at the time. A member of the Advisory Committee to the US ICCAT delegation, Ruais recently cited amendments to the Magnuson Stevens Act and the longstanding Marine Mammal Protection Act which require the Commerce Department to restrict import of fish products from countries that do not implement “similar or comparable conservation standards” to protect fish species. “Congress has recognized the U.S. fisherman’s world conservation leadership and demanded our fishermen not be disadvantaged in the marketplace,” said Donofrio, adding “the conservation sacrifices of the U.S. fishing community should not squandered by other nations ruthlessly exploiting this highly migratory species.” RFA believes much of the argument for securing global commitment to reigning in bluefin overharvest is the same today as in 2002, but setting the plan back in motion would require fiscal support. “What we need is for one of these ENGO’s to step up and do the right thing by helping support a 301 petition,” Depersenaire added. “With a 47% east west mixing rate, we certainly don’t want the EU or Africa exceeding bluefin landings in light of the oil spill.” “We have a European oil company responsible for the worst environmental disaster in world history, dumping millions of barrels of oil into American waters, while European fleets are grossly overfishing their allotted quota on a stock that migrates from one side of the Atlantic to the other, so when are we going to see some real federal assistance,” asked Donofrio. “The U.S State Department needs to do what’s right and demand accountability for non-compliance of international fishing treaties through trade sanctions.” Donofrio said. “ESA listings only punish law-abiding citizens back at home, not the international scofflaws,” he added.

SUMMER REMINDER: REGISTER BEFORE YOU FISH RFA Reminds Saltwater Anglers About New Federal Requirements In an effort to meet the reauthorization requirements of the 2006 Magnuson Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA), NOAA Fisheries earlier this year implemented a new federal registry of saltwater anglers. NOAA Fisheries has asked the Recreational Fishing Alliance (RFA) to remind our members and the saltwater angling community that the new federal registry of saltwater anglers has been implemented in an effort to improve statistical data collection in the recreational sector. The following message comes directly from the folks at NOAA Fisheries. Remember, if you’re not sure, visit www.countmyfish.noaa.gov. To all saltwater fishermen, You’ve probably heard something already about the National Saltwater Angler Registry, but I wanted to take this chance to remind you of this new law and encourage you to make sure you’re registered before you fish if you’re required to do so. Basically if you’re fishing in Federal waters OR for anadromous fish like shad, stripers and river herring - or even if you MIGHT CATCH an anadromous fish - you HAVE to register before you put your line in the water UNLESS one of the following applies to: • You have a valid license from an exempted state, or are a resident of an exempted state and aren’t required to have a license (e.g., as is sometimes the case for seniors or active duty military). • You are under 16. • You ONLY fish from licensed for-hire boats. • You have a current and valid HMS permit. • You are FISHING UNDER a current and valid commercial license. 42 I found it in The Coastal Mariner

August 2010

Since the Federal registration went into effect, numerous states have revised their saltwater fishing laws. If you’re not sure whether your state is exempt, DON’T GUESS. Visit www.countmyfish.noaa.gov for a current listing. Two other important things to know are: • Registration is FREE in 2010. • You CAN BEGIN FISHING IMMEDIATELY once you register online at www.countmyfish noaa.gov or by phone at 1-888-MRIP-411 WHY REGISTER? The fact is that as of January 1, registration is the law. While NOAA is currently focusing more on education than enforcement, you can face stiff penalties for not registering. Just as important however, is the fact that in the end registration will help saltwater fishermen in three important ways: 1. Registration is one tool NOAA is using to get BETTER DATA about how many fish we’re actually catching, and the health of the stocks. If fishermen fail to register THIS YEAR, it could mean SUBSTANTIAL DELAYS in implementing survey improvements. 2. Better data will mean BETTER MANAGEMENT. While this may not translate into longer seasons or higher bag limits, it WILL help to ensure predictability, fairness and appropriate representation of recreational fishing interests in management decisions. 3. Registration will provide the A MORE ACCURATE ACCOUNTING of the size and scope of the recreational fishery. This information will be invaluable as we promote our interests based on the true economic and marine stewardship impact we have. So whether you supported registration or opposed it, the fact is that it’s the law and we’ll all benefit if we all participate. Don’t delay. Register today. And have a great summer. - NOAA Fisheries
