Fish Tale Charters Ocean City NJ Fishing Charters Update. As all of you are well aware we are in a mess with a very contagious and potentially deadly virus. The COVID-19 virus is all over the country and seems to be getting worse before it will get better. We here at FISH TALE CHARTERS are doing well and are healthy. Washing hands constantly, social distancing, the use of masks and gloves is the rule for each day.

Per our Governors mandates due to COVID-19 Virus All Charter Fishing Companies are SHUT DOWN in The State Of New Jersey until further notice. Charter boats are part of the NONE ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES that are not able to conduct business at this time.

Fish Tale Charters Ocean City NJ Fishing Charters Update. According to the State Of NJ I do know that the Marinas are able to open and boats can be worked on as long as social distancing is in use. I have been in touch with my marina Harbour Cove Marina about this and they are saying we can start putting our boats in the slips starting April 15th. I have also contacted the boat yard where I keep FISH TALE and they are working and practicing social distancing. They are going to get the boat ready to put in the water tentatively on April 30th. I say tentatively because with this virus things could change at any time.

Fish Tale Charters Ocean City NJ Fishing Charters Update. As far as booking fishing charters for this 2020 fishing season. I am taking deposits and booking dates on a tentative bases. This means that (First) the Governor must open all NONE ESSENTIAL BUSINESSES. (Second) I need to feel comfortable with the situation as do you. COVID-19 is nothing to mess around with. If we get the green light from the Governor, you and I both feel good about the situation and it’s a good weather day we can fish. If we don’t have the green light from the STATE or either one of us is not feeling good about being on the boat in close quarters or it is not a fish-able weather day we cancel the fishing trip. Deposits will be refunded in full.

The other option you have is to wait until near the date you want to fish and contact me then. We can decide then what is best to do.

In the State Of NJ we will be aloud to harvest 1 Striped Bass per person per day at minimum size of 28″ to less than 38″. The Striped Bass Bonus Program is going to be available for this season. The start date will be May 15th and run thru the end of the year December 31st 2020. The size and bag regulations for the Striped Bass Bonus Program are the same as last year. We will be aloud to keep 1 Striped Bass at least 24″ but less than 28″. You must have a tag for this fish. Tags are issued from the New Jersey Fish And Game Commission. I participate in this program yet I have not received any information. This is due to the sanctions in place by our NJ Governor because of the COVID-19 virus. I spoke to one of the administrators of the Striped Bass Bonus Program on the phone. With everyone working out of their homes they are trying to get everything in place to get this program started on time. We Shall See?
