Correction: RI’s 2011 Fishing Regs

Last Friday’s post on Rhode Island’s 2011 fishing regulations contained 2 errors:

  • The post stated that the new minimum size for fluke is 18 inches. The correct minimum size is 18 1/2 inches.
  • The post also stated that Narragansett Bay, Point Judith Pond and the Harbor of Refuge will be closed to fluke (summer flounder) fishing. Those areas are closed to winter flounder, not fluke.

We regret the errors and any confusion they have caused.
