Fish Tale Fishing Charters Bay Flounder Ocean City NJ. Last week I posted that All Charter fishing boats as well as Party fishing boats were shut down. New Jersey’s Governor Murphy has lifted that order as of 6am last Sunday. If we plan on doing business though there is 6 pages of requirements that we all need to follow to be able to take people fishing. One of the requirements that will keep me shut down will be the SOCIAL DISTANCING being at least 6ft away from each other for the entire trip. There is no way I can follow this requirement. I just do not have the space on board to SOCIAL DISTANCE. Also when I am helping my clients with bait for hooks or netting fish, taking fish off hooks, Untangling lines etc. we are shoulder to shoulder. For my clients to stand at the gunwale and fish 6ft apart from each other is not going to work even with small groups on board. There are some other requirements that would be difficult on FISH TALE. Since last weeks post I have not changed my mind. There has been a lot of thought put into my decision, We here at Fish Tale Charters are NOT GOING TO BOOK ANY FISHING CHARTERS FOR THIS 2020 FISHING SEASON. The virus is not going to MAGICALLY go away. Having a face mask on through the trip when it’s 90* and humid does not sound relaxing to me. We would not be able to SOCIAL DISTANCE on my boat. There is not enough room. Given the virus situation as owner/operator of the boat not feeling comfortable about NO SOCIAL DISTANCE this year there will be no fishing trips booked here at FISH TALE CHARTERS. We do need to be safe with this virus. It is not a joking matter, at least not for me. Next year is another story. If things are much better with the COVID-19 VIRUS next season 2021 we hopefully will be fishing together again. STAY TUNED!

This fishing season I will be fishing on my own. As I head out on the water to fish I will still post a report as I go. Flounder season opens tomorrow 5/22. Unfortunately the weather does not sound too good. Also Saturday is a weather day with rain and thunderstorms. If the weather does not cooperate the next couple days I will post as soon as I get off the dock and fish.
