CAPE GAZETTE, Frid iy or late in ihe season. Flounder . limit of four fish per day X call to limit billboards with a minimum size of 17.5 inch- Continued from page 1 ing and there are more flounder "than there's ever been." Both Baker and Lesser, howev- er, note that while flounder num- bers are on the up- swing, so is fishing pressure. The in- tense fishing is con- . sidered large enough that even with a good popula- tion of flounder, it may not be enough to support the extra fishing pressure. Hence, the move for further cutbacks. The emergency order closed floun- der fishing until May 26. There are, howev- er, four different op- tions open to floun- der fishermen and they will be consid- ered at a public meeting on May I. Those four op- tions are as follows, although there's not a one that is likely to please local fishermen. Maintain the current emer- gency order which sets a mini- mum size of 17 inches with a dai- ly limit of five fish and a season from May 26 to September I. Fishermen say that eliminates great fall fishing. There will also be "very few" 17-inch long fish caught during the summer months, Lesser said. Those larger fish are traditionally caught either in deep water or ear- es. "You might as well close the season," Baker snorted, saying so few 17.5 inch fish are found.
