A reminder to ICE YOUR CATCH
We had more than a few bluefish in this weekend that had not been iced and were therefore unusable for the fillet program. Please treat your catch with respect and care for it properly by icing it down.
Anglers are reminded to removed all ice from fish prior to weighing them in.
